Bellway has acquired the second phase of the housebuilder’s Goods Yard development, part of a wider scheme to transform the area around Bishop Stortford’s railway station.
This next phase will provide a further 170 apartments to support the eagerly anticipated major regeneration site in the town.
The £200 million project will deliver a total of 586 new homes, an 85-bed hotel, 55-bed care home, new transport interchange and station square, retail and office space on the former railway goods yard site off Station Road.
Bellway is building 323 of the new homes, featuring a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments across the two phases.
Construction work on the first phase of 149 apartments has already begun, with the first homes due to go on sale in Spring 2020.
Greg Allsop, Head of Sales and Marketing for Bellway North London, said: “We are proud to be building the first homes at Goods Yard, a landmark regeneration project which will create a vibrant new residential and leisure quarter in the heart of Bishop’s Stortford.
“Our development will provide a range of high-quality apartments to meet the high level of demand for new homes in the area, and in phase two many will have views across the River Stort.”
He added: “Bishops Stortford’s excellent rail links to London make it a particularly desirable location for home buyers, and Goods Yard’s close proximity to the railway station means it is perfectly placed for those commuting to the capital.
“Construction work has now commenced at Goods Yard and we are looking forward to releasing the first apartments for sale in Spring 2020.”
