A new £6.1m housing development in Wavertree, designed for customers looking to rent in Liverpool, launched with a sod cutting ceremony to mark the official start of construction work on site.
Nuvu Wavertree is a 48-home development which is being developed by Your Housing Group, one of the largest housing providers in the UK, with more than 28,000 homes across North West, Yorkshire and the Midlands, in partnership with Liverpool City Council and MCI Developments.
Steve Fensom, chief operating officer at Your Housing Group, Councillor Lynnie Hinnigan, deputy mayor of Liverpool and cabinet member for housing at Liverpool City Council and Alex Wood, managing director at MCI Developments attended an official sod cutting ceremony to launch building work.
The development, near Edington Street, by Wavertree Technology Park, will offer one-bedroom apartments and a mixture of two- and three-bedroom homes, which will be available to rent through Nuvu Living, Your Housing Group’s rental brand.
The site previously housed railway sidings. Development began with remedial work taking place to improve the land in April and construction work has now started and due to be completed in August 2019.
Lorraine Donnelly, development director at Your Housing Group, said:
“This contemporary rental development sees us making another firm commitment to investing in Liverpool. We want to continue to develop clean, modern homes suitable for local people, from single customers, to families.
“We believe that renting a home is a lifestyle choice and offering high quality homes in great locations is paramount. This site is expected to be popular because of its proximity to the M62 and Wavertree Technology Park and Edge Hill railway stations, offering services to Liverpool or Manchester.”
Councillor Lynnie Hinnigan, deputy mayor of Liverpool and cabinet member for housing at Liverpool City Council, said:
“This new development will help alleviate the lack of new homes for rent in Wavertree and boost the local community by creating new construction jobs, developing contemporary new housing stock and improving the local area.”
