Work has started to build 53 new homes in Coventry
Construction has started on 53 new homes across Coventry which will provide affordable housing in the city.
We are working with Seddon to deliver the homes on each site.
- Almond Tree Avenue – 36 homes with a mix of two and three-bedroom homes. The £3.6m development is part of wider transformation projects in the city which will see the reinvention of Riley Square and the Bell Green district centre
- Everdon Road – six new affordable rent homes will be built on the brownfield site that was formerly occupied by low-rise flats
- Clifton Street – work on 11 new homes has also started.
Work on all sites should have started in March 2020, however coronavirus restrictions and concerns around the health and safety of those on-site meant that groundwork was delayed until July 2020.
Over the last couple of months progress has been made to groundworks with bricks being laid on the first plots.
Our Executive Director of Development, Nick Byrne, said: “We’re pleased to see work starting at these three sites in Coventry despite an unusual start to the year with the outbreak of Covid 19.
“When completed the homes will provide affordable homes for people living in Coventry. We are looking forward to seeing these sites progress over the next year.”
Rob Moore, Business Unit Director at Seddon, added: “All three of these vital developments are part of the bigger picture for the regeneration of Coventry. It’s great to be part of three further projects in the Midlands that will truly benefit local people and the community.
“Our aim is to help Citizen achieve its goal to increase the supply of affordable homes in the Midlands. Despite a few initial delays, we’re powering on with works to the sites and we’re really pleased with the progress so far.”
All developments are due to be completed in summer 2021.
