Deputy Mayor unveils new
COUNCILLOR Ann O'Byrne has unlocked the
doors to a stylish new show village at Countryside's Queen Mary Place
development in Liverpool. Prices start at £148,950. The Deputy Mayor of
Liverpool helped to celebrate the official release of 200 affordable homes with
a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the £26m redevelopment project in Walton.
The development, which is being built by Countryside on behalf of Sigma and
Liverpool City Council's regeneration partnership, Regeneration Liverpool,
features a collection of high quality and affordable homes that are designed for
modern family living.
Councillor Ann O'Byrne, Deputy Mayor of
Liverpool, said:- "This is a fantastic development which forms part of our
commitment to deliver 5,000 new homes in Liverpool, driving up the quality and
range of properties available to residents. It is another example of the council
using brownfield sites which have been previously developed for housing."
Ian Kelley, Managing Director of Countryside's Partnerships North division,
added:- "The Deputy Mayor's presence here today truly reinforces Liverpool
City Council's commitment to building high quality and affordable homes
throughout the City. We've already experienced an overwhelming amount of
interest in the development since opening the doors to our interior decorated
show village, with 14 homes already sold off-plan. This success replicates the
popularity of our nearby NGV Liverpool development, which has been instrumental
in the transformation of Norris Green and further improving the quality and
variety of homes across the City."
Of the 200 homes under construction, 136 will be available for sale through the
Government's 5% deposit Help to Buy scheme, with the remaining 64 available for
private rent under a new private rental offering (PRS) between Sigma Capital,
Gatehouse Bank Plc and Barclays.
Graeme Hogg, Chief Operating Officer at Sigma Capital, said:- "The 64 PRS
units that we have here at Queen Mary Place are in addition to the 150 we have
on site at NGV Liverpool, both of which are part of our initial £100 million
fund created by Sigma Capital, Gatehouse and Barclays. This alone is a £25
million investment in PRS in North Liverpool. We only commenced on site in
February and are delighted with progress to date. Demand for the product has
been very strong and lettings are going extremely well. We expect to be letting
the homes at a rate of around 15 per month and will be handing over keys to our
1st tenants this week. All of the of the units will be completed and fully let
by November 2015, only 10 months after we started. We look forward to
continuing to work with our colleagues at Liverpool City Council on new sites as
we feel the combination of PRS and private sale can evidentially bring about
transformational change to an area. Queen Mary Place and NGV Liverpool are great
examples of this happening now."
