Estimated Value: £3.1M
Completed: In Progress
The £3.1million project between Anwyl Partnerships and 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 is set to regenerate the unsafe site which was fast-becoming a target for anti-social behaviour.
The project has been negotiated in a full turnkey package solution, comprising acquisition of land, securing planning permission and all construction works, led by Anwyl Partnerships.
The development will comprise of one and two-bedroom apartments, which are designed in accordance with Welsh DQR Guidelines and will 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 has been demolished, with ground-works now progressing to be followed by ground floor slab construction and subsequent superstructure masonry works.
The project is programmed to complete in September 2020. Once complete, the apartments will showcase contemporary and subtle design to ensure it is in-keeping with it’s existing surroundings, and compliments the neighbouring listed building, St Marks Church.
Anwyl Construction will use its directly employed team, as well as a trusted and established local supply chain, to deliver the scheme.
The development is funded by Welsh Government Social Housing Grant, secured in partnership with Flintshire County Council and by private investment from ClwydAlyn Housing Ltd.
Craig Sparrow, Executive Director of ClwydAlyn said:
We are delighted to be working with Anwyl on this important development which will benefit the local area for generations to come.
