ForHousing has now invested £40m in new homes in Eccles, where work was completed on a new development of affordable homes.
The site of the former Barton Lane Sports and Recreation Club in Eccles, Salford, had sat unoccupied since November 2016, before housing provider ForHousing transformed the site into 48 modern apartments for affordable rent.
The scheme is made up of 24 one-bedroom homes and 24 two-bedroom homes, and will be known as Crown House.
The development takes ForHousing’s investment in new homes in Eccles to £40m.
Nigel Sedman, group director of Homes said: “We’re really proud of this new development, which has seen a disused site transformed into much needed modern, affordable homes for around 120 people.
“At ForHousing we are committed to building high-quality homes where people are proud to live, improving their wellbeing and contributing to strong communities.
“We are looking forward to welcoming many new tenants to Crown House in the coming weeks.”
Mangrove Estates Ltd was the developer on the site, with Watson Homes responsible for the build and Grays Architecture leading on the scheme design.
The Barton Lane development was part funded by a £1.68m grant from Homes England.
ForHousing owns and manages 24,000 homes across the North West of England, in Fylde, Knowsley, Oldham and Salford.
