We're delighted to annouce that work has begun at a new large scale £8.5million extra care scheme in Wirral, under a partnership agreement between Magenta Living and Anwyl Partnerships who are specialists in the provision of residential land and build developments.
The extra care housing scheme on Greenheys Road in Wallasey comprises 53 apartments and will help fulfil a much needed gap in older persons living, within this area.
Two existing buildings at the 1.2-acre site off Greenheys Road have been demolished to make way for the 53 apartments, which includes 45 one-bedroom units and eight two-bedroom units, as well as car parking and extensive landscaping.
Mike Nevitt, Managing Director of Anwyl Partnerships explained: “It’s great to begin work on this brilliant scheme. There has been extensive planning and consultation during the development phase, identifying and recognising a real need within the area. There are no other similar older persons living developments within Wallasey and this scheme will provide a niche gap that sits between independent living and care home living.
“It’s great to once again partner with Magenta Living and help support them deliver their wider housebuilding aspirations throughout Wirral and beyond.”
Justine Gore, Assistant Director of Development at Magenta Living said: “Greenheys is a very exciting development for Magenta Living as it’s our biggest Extra Care scheme in Wirral to date. With an ageing population in Wirral, this scheme will provide 53 much-needed apartments for local residents looking for independent living with care packages available. The Development Team at Magenta Living have worked tirelessly to bring this project to fruition, and we are delighted to be working with Anwyl, once again, to deliver this successful project. We can’t wait to start seeing progress on site.”
The scheme is expected to take 18 months to construct, with handover anticipated in January 2023.
