Keyne Court tops out
Halsall and Alliance Homes met up to celebrate the topping out of Keyne Court, the impressive new apartment block project Hallsall is building for Alliance Homes.
Just minutes away from Keynsham’s High Street, the project saw a former Dribuild office and derelict house demolished, and an area transformed into a three-storey modern apartment block, consisting of 15 apartments, a large retail space on the lower floor and a standalone house.
The new homes will be a mix of one and two-bedrooms. The apartments will feature, adjoining balconies that can be accessed from the open plan living area or main bedroom. All the new homes will be available for Shared Ownership from Alliance.
A show home for the Shared Ownership sales is expected to open in November and those who are interested in making a purchase should visit the shared ownership section of the website.
The topping out ceremony was held, fittingly, up on the timber roof structure that will soon form the completed building. Present at the ceremony was Andy Corp, Managing Director of Halsall, Iain Lock, Director of Investment, Darrell Lock, New Homes Delivery Lead and Stephen Cleavely, Building Manager for Alliance Homes.
The milestone was commemorated with the placement of the final ridge tile at the top of the building and a site tour in which everyone thoroughly enjoyed seeing the progress made so far.
At the ceremony, Andy Corp, Managing Director of Halsall commented: “It is great that we can come together to mark and celebrate such an important milestone in this project. We’re glad that we are a trusted construction partner for Alliance Homes, working together to help drive the need for quality affordable housing.”
Once complete, all homes will be handed over to Alliance Homes and will be sold using the Shared Ownership Scheme.
Iain Lock, Director of Investment for Alliance Homes said: “It was fantastic to be a part of the ceremony with Halsall. Developing communities is one of our top priorities and I am delighted with the progress of these new homes. Alliance has ambitious plans to create 2,000 new homes over the next ten years and Keyne Court will form a fantastic contribution to the local community.”
The project is estimated to complete at the end of this year.
