Urban Union has reached a key milestone at its Perth development after handing over the first homes to Fairfield Housing Co-operative.
A number of homes at Muirton Living were handed over to the housing association, with residents set to move in later this summer. A multi-million pound project, the regeneration of Muirton will see Urban Union deliver 102 affordable homes in the first phase of development, followed by an additional 101 for private sale.
Urban Union is expected to complete work on the affordable homes by the end of 2018 and the private homes by summer 2019.
Neil McKay, Managing Director of Urban Union, said: “This represents a major milestone in the regeneration of Muirton as we are now one step closer to the first residents moving into their new homes.
“We have worked closely with Fairfield Housing Co-operative and Caledonia Housing Association throughout this project and all partners can be proud of these new homes which will have a transformative impact on the local community.”
The development will offer a wide range of accommodation types with one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom properties available. Each property comes with either private or shared gardens alongside attractive outdoor space and car parking facilities.
The new homes form an important part of the regeneration of the site at Muirton and follow extensive community engagement in the development of the master plans.
Grant Ager, Chief Executive at Fairfield Housing Co-operative, added: “The new tenants are delighted with both the quality and design of these homes. They will be transformational to many lives. The final parts of the Muirton Park development are falling into place and it is exceeding expectations, with a true sense of both place and home being created.
Muirton Living, delivered in partnership with Caledonia Housing Association and Fairfield Housing Co-operative, is set within close proximity to Perth’s town centre with easy access to public transport links.
Peter Broad, Development Manager at Caledonia Housing Association, said: “The new homes for Fairfield are another milestone in the 12-year Muirton regeneration programme. As the project draws nearer to completion it becomes a positive testament to how collaborative working can transform neighbourhoods into places where people want to live and to be proud of.’’
The development offers a selection of one to four-bedroom homes providing plenty of options for everyone, from first time buyers to growing families. The development sits within the catchment area of five local schools, both at primary and secondary level.
