This month, we've got some news on our brand new homes at Park Hill, Sheffield, where just a few remain on sale. There's updates from our Commercial team, giving us a run down completed deals for 2021 that saw them let an amazing 230,000 sq ft of award-winning workspace. We've got updates from New Islington in Manchester where our last ever Town House homes in the area are now on sales, and East Float in Wirral Waters, where our brand new show home opens next month. There's also news from our Urban Splash Residential Fund, who've just completed another successful year of trading. Read on to find out more.
Introducing our newest homes at Park Hill in Sheffield
We’ve opened the doors to the latest phase at Park Hill – Sheffield’s iconic Grade II Listed building that’s earned a new reputation as the city’s cultural quarter. We’ve already completed 260 fully occupied homes, workspaces, a nursery, restaurant, shop, student accommodation and gardens, and this newest phase filled with duplex apartments gives people another chance to move into the neighbourhood. Just a few of them remain on sale; arrange your visit on the link below.
Your last chance to own a house at New Islington in Manchester
We’re onsite creating our last ever Town House homes at New Islington in Manchester. This waterfront neighbourhood’s fast becoming Manchester’s social beating heart, with new bars and restaurants and the buzz of Ancoats close by. Marina Gardens is the last place we’ll create our award-winning houses here on a street that is serendipitously placed across from the very first homes we built in 2016.
We completed deals on 230,000 sq ft of commercial space last year
2021 was a busy year for our commercial team; not only did they support our customers through the challenges of COVID, but they also completed sales and lettings of 230,000 sq ft of space across the country, with new businesses, restaurants, bars and other operators moving into our neighbourhoods. Looking for a new workspace for your team this year? See what's available on the link below.
Our new show home opens at East Float on the Wirral next month
Our recent video shows just how quickly we’ve created our award-winning Town House homes and new Row House homes at East Float – part of Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters development. These waterside homes come in a range of sizes, and next month, we’ll open our first show home. Click below to find out more and get the details of the Help to Buy that’s now available on some of them too. Prices start from £210,000.
Urban Splash Residential Fund concludes fourth successful year of trading
In its latest annual results, the Urban Splash Residential Fund has announced unlevered net annual investor returns of 9.5%. The news comes as the fund also confirms it has received additional equity commitments in excess of £100 million and has plans to expand its portfolio into more areas of the country.
