    Director of Chrome Services, Adrian Dale, said : “This is a really exciting project. We’ve already made some great progress on site and look forward to helping transform this historic building, which is in need of some TLC. Delivering a high-end, sought-after development is always very rewarding and we’re proud to be a part of it.”

    Work begins on £18m luxury development on site of former YWCA

    Work has begun on a new £18million residential development in Altrincham.

    The former YWCA building, which lies on the corner of Ashley Road and St John’s Road, has stood derelict for several years and developed a reputation as a local eyesore.

    However, it’s now set for demolition and reconstruction as a luxury development called Alderbank after developer Real Estate Investment Partnerships Ltd confirmed the appointment of Barnfield Construction. The council approved the plans last March.

    The Lancashire-based company has now commenced work on the project, which will take around a year to build and consist of 34 large apartments and 6 mews houses. The development has been designed by Ollier Smurthwaite architects.

    Eleven of the properties are currently under offer. Mews houses have been going for £300,000, with a three-bedroom apartment on the market for £800,000.

    Stephen Slater, chief executive officer of Real Estate Investment Partnerships Ltd, said: “Barnfield Construction has proven to be the ideal partner to bring Alderbank WA14 to life. The team has a stellar track record in the construction of premium residential developments, with exceptional attention to detail, so we’re very confident that they will deliver this luxury scheme to the high expectations of our buyers.”

    Alderbank Alternate View

    “Alderbank has captured the attention of potential investors and buyers alike, so we know the pressure is on to deliver one of the most sought after developments in the area for some time. Being a stone’s throw from Altrincham, the development will boast incredibly easy access to the fantastic – and continually developing – amenities.”

    There will also be ground-level and underground parking for 86 cars, landscaped communal gardens and a croquet lawn.

    John Parkinson, Contracts Manager for Barnfield Construction, added: “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. Delivering a scheme that’s in such high demand is a rewarding endeavour and we’re excited to be part of the regeneration of Altrincham, in our own way.”

    Real Estate Investment Partnerships Ltd is also handling the £9m redevelopment of the former Transform HQ on Green Walk in Bowdon.

    Barnfield breaks ground at Alderbank WA14

    Barnfield Construction has broken ground on the Alderbank WA14 development in Altrincham.

    Following the demolition of Alexandra House, which formerly occupied the site and has been derelict for more than five years, Barnfield started building work on the £18m scheme this week.

    Remnants of the old building have been removed and the next phase involves the installation of sheet piling and internal building foundations for the scheme of 34 large apartments and six mews houses.

    The scheme, led by Manchester-based developer Real Estate Investment Partnerships, is expected to create 20 to 30 jobs in the region during the first phase. The fit-out of the building, which is due to take place in 2018, will generate an additional 70 jobs.  

    Stephen Slater, chief executiveof Real Estate Investment Partnerships, said: “With the demolition of Alexandra House complete, we’re at an exciting point in the development of Alderbank. We’re looking forward to seeing the scheme take shape and the complete transformation of what has been a local eyesore for many years.

    “Altrincham’s regeneration continues to breathe new life into the town and we’re proud to be a part of its mini-renaissance.”  

    John Parkinson, contracts manager for Barnfield Construction, added: “Throughout the demolition phase the site has presented its own challenges, due to restricted site access, so we’re pleased to see the development moving forward at a steady pace.

    “Everything’s on track to start laying the foundations for this fantastic regeneration project, which will see the once derelict site bloom into a stylish and contemporary complex over the coming months.”   

    The scheme has been designed by architect Ollier Smurthwaite. Enquiries and sales are being handled by Hibbert Homes in Hale and Gascoigne Halman in Altrincham.

It is well-located to provide a much-needed amenity for locals as well as those passing between Stalybridge and Hyde.

    “The team that included Zerum as project managers, architects Michael Hyde Associates and RJP Construction have all done a fantastic job to get this project completed.”

    Real Estate Investments sell Hyde retail development for £1.32m

    Reflecting a net initial yield of 5.75%, Real Estate Investment Partnerships and Hardy Mill Properties have sold a retail site on the corner of Talbot Road and Victoria Street in Hyde to a private investor.

    The development on the site of the former Bay Horse pub was bought by the developer in 2015, and work started the following December. The Co-Op was the first tenant to sign up, taking 3,500 sq ft and opening in August 2017.

    REIP has also signed up White Cross Vets as a tenant in a 2,000 sq ft unit. The site sits on the main link road between Hyde and Stalybridge, and planning permission was secured for the pub’s redevelopment in October 2015.

    Simon Gallanders, director at REIP said: “When we bought it we saw a lot of potential and our aim was to build something that would really benefit the local community. It is well located to provide a much needed amenity for locals as well as those passing between Stalybridge and Hyde.”

    REIP was advised by Metis on the deal, and the consultant’s investment director Jonathan Phillips said: “The development will prove very beneficial for the local area and also demonstrates the continued Investor appetite for lengthy income streams secured against strong covenants”.

    Agents Appointed to Warp & Weft

    Agents have been appointed to the Warp and Weft development in Northern Quarter.

    The project secured planning approval in November 2017 and will comprise 20 one and two-bed apartments and commercial space along Thomas Street.

    Real Estate Investment Partnerships is behind the scheme and has appointed Metis and Barker Proudlove as joint agents for the retail component.

    Simon Gallanders, director of Real Estate Investment Partnerships, said: “We have created a development that fits into the real fabric of the Northern Quarter and will appeal to young professionals that want to live in the city centre and have access to the unique appeal of the area.

    “When we purchased this site, the council had deemed 48-50 Thomas Street as unstable and carried out a part-demolition of the site. The heritage property that adjoined the demolished building has been left exposed to the elements but we are looking forward to breathing new life into a site that has such an incredible past.”

    Jon Matthews of 5plus Architects, added: “Our design response brings the heritage assets back to life as homes, whilst providing unique, site specific proposals for residential and retail use on the remainder of the site. The project pays special attention to the unique scale, typology and materiality of Thomas Street and the Northern Quarter.”
