Regeneration of Altrincham gathers pace

August 1, 2017 by  

A developer is confident that an Altrincham regeneration scheme will be successful.

The Alderbank initiative of apartments and mews houses should be completed in the course of next year. At this early stage, one third of 40 properties at the Ashley Road site have been purchased. Brochure printers in Altrincham can be used to showcase new buildings.

Stephen Slater, the chief executive at Real Estate Investment Partnerships (REIP), said:

“We’re looking forward to when the site has been completely transformed and the development can take pride of place in such a prime location. It’s sure to be an iconic building in Altrincham’s regeneration and we can’t wait to welcome the first residents.”

The development has been designed with the needs of future residents in mind. Ollier Smurthwaite, the award-winning architect, has helped to deliver a project which features communal gardens and parking facilities. Some of the parking spaces shall be underground.

Manchester-based REIP managed to boost regional employment by about 25 jobs in the early phase of the development. The hope is that the fit-out may create 70 posts going forward. REIP is really pleased that there has been so much interest in the properties.

Barnfield Construction started work on putting the development together earlier in 2017. The site used to be occupied by the YWCA building and prior to its demolition, it had not been used for several years.
