Project New Build

This new build residential development was built and designed to offer affordable rent to the over 55s consisting of 27 two bedroom apartments. The apartments were built over three floors and designed to fit sympathetically within their surroundings which included maximising the views of the Shrewsbury Abbey Church. The ground floor was elevated above surrounding ground levels enabling the area below to be used for secure car parking, with lift access to all floors.

Each of the timber framed apartments has UPVC windows and high quality kitchens and bathrooms installed, whilst 22 of the apartments have glazed Juliet balconies, adding an attractive feature for prospective residents.
