We have been working with sustainable property developer Blueprint on initial designs for a new Group Custom Build housing development. The first of its kind in Nottingham, the Fruit Market project will see us work alongside homeowners to individually customise their homes, and collaborate with their neighbours to design shared facilities that will be owned and managed by the custom build group.
Our very own Matthew Letts intends to be a part of the first group of custom builders: “For me, it’s immensely appealing to look at The Fruit Market as an opportunity to work with others, choose my neighbours and create a community all at the same time. The location also has huge appeal – in a conservation area, with green space on the doorstep and yet a short stroll to the centre of Hockley and the city centre. I am really looking forward to the project gathering momentum over the next few months.”
The completed £7M Fruit Market scheme will see a real mix of contemporary architectural houses and apartments designed in response to the heritage setting. The site, located on Bath Street, overlooks Victoria Park and is next to the redeveloped Sneinton Market. It has the capacity for around 40 homes, with 15 homes and apartments earmarked for construction during Phase One of the project.
