Lovell has been appointed by Wythenshawe Community Housing Group as main contractor for an £11.7m design-and-build contract to deliver 130 affordable homes for local people in Wythenshawe, south Manchester.
The development will be on a brownfield site at Greenbrow Road, west Wythenshawe. There will be 52 houses for sale and shared ownership and 78 apartments for affordable rent.
The development will replace five blocks of flats owned by WCHG. The new homes are set to be completed in January 2018. The scheme was awarded to Lovell following a competitive tendering process.
The development follows Lovell’s successful completion in 2013 of the New Foxfield development; 52 houses and 16 flats in Newall Green, Wythenshawe, for Wythenshawe Community Housing Group.
