£7m housing development of 19th century mill unveiled
A historic mill in Halifax has been transformed into a £7m residential development.
The former 19th century, six storey Martin’s Mill has been converted into 45 one-bed apartments and 15 two-bed apartments with parking for 29 residents by property developer Mandale Homes.
The development, located between Pellon Lane and Richmond Road, overlooks Halifax town centre and the Shibden Valley countryside.
Working with the regeneration team at Calderdale Council, Mandale Homes has brought the building back into use by delivering modern living with historic character and further building on the town’s ongoing renaissance.
Mandale Homes sales director, Richard Harriman, said: “We are delighted to complete the regeneration of Martin’s Mill in Halifax into homes for local people.
“Halifax is an old town that is reinventing itself and it has been a privilege to work with Calderdale Council and local stakeholders to be able to deliver a residential scheme that turns its past into its future.
“We believe the scheme will appeal to young property buyers looking for town centre living.
“The council’s vision for the town has seen some amazing schemes, not least of which is the multi-million pound transformation of The Piece Hall.
“The overarching theme for the town is development that suits the sense of what the Halifax community wants to be: lifestyle-oriented and blending old with new - we know our new apartments meet this image and will have real buyer appeal.”
