Latest 'high quality' apartment scheme taking shape in Jesmond
The development of eight new apartments on a street in Jesmond has begun.
Victoria Court is a project being delivered by regional developer and landlord, Karbon Homes, with a £700k refurbishment of the building being led by contractor, Burridge Construction.
The building on Gowan Terrace is being reconfigured to have two-bedroomed apartments and two one-bed apartments to suit the local rental market, and each one will benefit from its own secure car parking space at the rear of the block.
Letting agent, Pat Robson has been appointed to market the building locally, with young professional tenants being the key market.
Jayne Hore, assistant director of sales and marketing at Karbon, said: “We are excited by the quality of home we are bringing forward at Victoria Court.
“This is a fantastic location, right in the heart of Jesmond, within easy walking distance of the shops and cafes around Acorn Road, and just a few minutes from beautiful Jesmond Dene.
“There are not many homes of this type, in this area, with a reserved off road parking space for every apartment.”
Karbon Homes is a major landlord in the North East, with almost 30,000 homes of different types across the region.
The company offers rented homes, Shared Ownership, Rent to Buy and homes for sale, with all profits re-invested to build and maintain more properties for the communities it serves.
