New images revealed of upcoming homes at Port Loop
As it takes forward a third phase of homes at Port Loop in Birmingham, the modern housebuilder House by Urban Splash has released a series of images showing what the completed properties will look like.
The new phase will bring an entirely new house type to Birmingham; known as Row House, the homes are precision engineered in the House by Urban Splash factory, and will be first arriving on site in late March/ early April where they will be craned into place. Six new CGIs, including the first external images of the two-storey homes, show what customers can expect.
A modern take on a traditional terraced home, Row House features a striking grey profiled metal façade and the housebuilder’s signature oversized windows. Inside, for a limited time only, customers are able to customize the ground floor layout to suit their individual needs, choosing between open plan living and a brand-new layout with a functional lobby area.
Evangelina Hogan, sales manager for House by Urban Splash, said: “This is a new house type for Port Loop and, with prices starting from £310,000, it represents a more affordable way for people to join our popular island neighbourhood.”
As an added benefit, particularly for first time buyers searching for a new home, House by Urban Splash, has this week launched its own 5% deposit scheme at Port Loop.
Under the initiative, the 10% deposit needed to exchange contracts and secure a new home at Port Loop is split into two payments. Purchasers pay the first 5% on exchange, with the final 5% paid six months after the customer’s reservation date.
Evangelina continued: “Since launching the first homes for sale in our third phase in late 2021, we are now 90% sold of the Town Houses and now we have released 15 four-bedroom, 3-storey Row Houses and 16 two-bedroom, two-storey Row Houses. We’re excited to see the first Row Houses arrive at Port Loop in just a few weeks’ time and give buyers more choice of homes available. In the meantime, these new CGIs give our customers and potential new homeowners a glimpse of what life in our Row Houses will be like.”
A unique feature of the new homes at Port Loop is the large, central communal gardens which all properties have access to, as well as Port Loop’s existing one-acre public park. In addition to this landscaped shared space, homeowners have a private garden terrace and allocated parking, plus easy access to the canal which surrounds the new neighbourhood.
Located 15 minutes along the canal from Brindleyplace, Port Loop will deliver 1,150 new homes when complete, as well as a variety of community and workspaces. The Floating Front Room, an outdoor coffee shop and Yard, Birmingham’s first Art House that hosts regular exhibitions and events, have already opened and are incredibly popular amongst the local community, as are the regular outdoor events.
Multi award-winning, Port Loop is being delivered by a Joint Venture between Urban Splash and Places for People, in partnership with Birmingham City Council and Canal & River Trust. Phase 3 will be delivered by House by Urban Splash – a modern, new housebuilder from award winning property developer Urban Splash in partnership with Sekisui House, Japan’s largest housebuilder, and Homes England, the government’s housing agency.
