Frank Rogers has been awarded a new contract by Magenta Living to build ten apartments on the site of a former car park on Mcgarva Way in Ellesmere Port. Initial work has commenced and the properties will completed by Spring 2018.
Magenta Living is investing £1 million into the site and will deliver the project in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council, the Homes and Communities Agency and the Department of Health
The apartments are all one bed homes that have been designed in accordance with the new National Space Standards. David Rudkin from architects Halsall Lloyd Partnership describes the design as “using traditional materials, such as a quality red brick, in a modern style that relates to the local context”. The apartments share a communal garden at the rear and will enjoy use of the existing greenspace on the Stanney Lane side of the site.
Dean Rogers, Managing Director of Frank Rogers commented:
“We’ve worked in and around the Ellesmere Port area for many years, carrying out a range of planned and reactive maintenance works. This will be our first new build scheme in the area, and we are looking forward to the opportunity.
We understand and appreciate the challenges faced when working amongst communities and we will approach the programme sensitively and with an awareness of the needs of local residents.”
John Siddell, Head of Development at Magenta Living added:
“The McGarva Way scheme will be Magenta Living’s third new build project in Ellesmere Port and takes our investment in the area to over £13 million. The project demonstrates our commitment to proving housing-led regeneration in Ellesmere Port.
We are looking forward to working with Frank Rogers to build quality new affordable homes on this site”
