Magenta Living has completed its latest development, a £2.4m apartment complex in Hoylake, Wirral.
The Redshanks in Market Street contains 32 two-bedroom apartments. Local MP and employment minister, Esther McVey, joined Jessica Plumb and Martha Clowes, pupils of Holy Trinity Primary School to plant one of the fruit trees that will form part of the orchard at the development, together with the 'incredible edible' initiative which provides public access to healthy, local food through community growing plots.
Jessica and Martha came up with the winning name in a competition to name the scheme; Redshanks is the name of one of the houses at their school. A redshank is a common wading bird with bright orange-red legs and bill.
The apartments were built by Fawley Construction, designed by Michael Dyson Associates.
Magenta Living changed its name from Wirral Partnership Homes earlier this year.
