Estimated Value: £3.1M
Completed: February 2021
The project was delivered in partnership with housing provider, ClwydAlyn, to create 30 high quality older person living apartments. The new development is situated on the former Albion hotel and social club site in Connah’s Quay, North Wales and will regenerate an unsafe site, which was fast-becoming a target for anti-social behaviour.
Negotiated in a full turnkey package solution, this project comprised acquisition of land, securing planning permission and all construction works, led by Anwyl Partnerships.
The development comprises of one and two-bedroom apartments, which are designed in accordance with Welsh DQR Guidelines and provide much needed accommodation for this specific demographic. This project forms part of ClwydAlyn’s large scale development investment plans across the region providing a wide-range of affordable housing solutions, addressing the wider issues surrounding a local and national homes shortage.
The existing building was demolished as part of the programme of works in 2019. Following a period of closure during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, the project was completed and handed over in early 2021.
The apartments showcase contemporary and subtle design to ensure it is in-keeping with it’s existing surroundings, with particular thought given to the neighbouring listed building, St Mark’s Church.
The development was funded by Welsh Government Social Housing Grant, secured in partnership with Flintshire County Council and by private investment from ClwydAlyn Housing Ltd.
We were delighted to work with Anwyl on this important development which will benefit the local area for generations to come.
