    A 8 minute read by Tom Bloxham

    Welcome to our March edition of Newsplash - a monthly round-up of all things Urban Splash, featuring new homes, scheme launches, commercial news and much more.

    This month we've got some breaking news from the South of France where a number of our team have been attending MIPIM. We've just announced the latest phase at Park Hill in Sheffield, which brings the total investment in the scheme to more than £100m. There's also news about the launch of our newly formed Urban Splash Residential Fund. Read on for more details...

    Urban Splash Residential Fund has launched; it is one of the first branded residential portfolios in the UK and is already fully subscribed with £20m of initial seed equity secured from “friends and family (high-net-worth)” investors. The initial portfolio, which sits independent from the Urban Splash Group, comprises 123 homes, including 33 apartments at Park Hill in Sheffield, 80 apartments at Lister Mills in Bradford and 10 modular houses at Irwell Riverside in Salford.
