Lovell is due to start on site in the coming weeks on the construction of 140 homes on the former site of the Joseph Williams Primary School on Naylorsfield Drive in Belle Vale.
Regeneration company Compendium Living, a joint venture between the development arm of Lovell and The Riverside Group, has appointed the construction division of Lovell to deliver the £15.5m project.
The mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes will be available for open market sale.
Work is already under way by Compendium Living on 16 shared ownership houses and 10 apartments, houses and bungalows for affordable rent for Riverside at the Belle Vale site.
The overall housing development scheduled to be complete in 2020. Landscaping and green space are included in the project and include new footpath links from Viennese Road to Naylorsfield Drive.
