Luxury development in Altrincham gets underway

May 1, 2017 by  

Work on a brand new luxury residential development that is being built at a cost of £18 million in Altrincham is now underway, and it will see one of the town’s most notorious derelict buildings demolished.

Located at the corner of St John’s Road and Ashley Road, this building used to be home to the Altrincham YWCA. However, since this closed down a number of years ago, it has lain disused and has come to be regarded by those living in the town as an eyesore.

Approval for the plans submitted by Real Estate Investment Partnerships Ltd was granted by the local council during March last year. It will see the building demolished and a residential block named Alderbank built in its place.

Barnfield Construction, a company based in Lancashire, will be responsible for the building work. The finished development will feature six mews houses and 34 spacious flats, with architects’ firm Ollier Smurthwaite having designed it.

Barnfield Construction contracts manager, John Parkinson, told Altrincham Today that:

“Alderbank WA14 is an exciting project which will give us the opportunity to cement our reputation as a contractor which can deliver a smooth construction service, as well as an exceptional finished product.”

It is expected to be completed by the spring of 2018 and brochure printers may well be called upon to help showcase the finished development.
