Hull sees completion of latest home for 'affordable' £2.7m residential development
Homebuilder Keepmoat Homes has celebrated the completion of its Alexandra Gardens development in Hull.
Part of the Citywide Development Agreement, the development which features 162 new homes, is on the site of the former Greif Industrial Estate and has been delivered over a two-year period with work starting on site in 2017.
Of the 162 new homes built by Keepmoat Homes, 25 per cent have been designated as ‘affordable homes’ and will be managed by Hull City Council.
Cllr John Black, portfolio holder for housing at Hull City Council, said: “Thanks to partnerships like Citywide, the council is delivering its ambition to offer a wider choice of affordable housing and transform neighbourhoods into sustainable residential areas.
“Alexander Gardens ticks all the boxes, including provision of council homes for rent which is integral to our new build programme.”
Alongside the delivery of new homes for Hull, Keepmoat Homes has also sought to support the local community.
Over the course of the development, it is estimated that the project has generated over £2.7m of social value, created employment and training opportunities for local people including employing 12 full-time apprentices and safeguarding a further 94 full-time equivalent jobs.
