Work underway at new over 55s development in Formby


Liverpool-based property developer Primesite Developments has begun works on Mayflower Manor, a new over 55s residential development in Formby



Work underway at new over 55s development in Formby

Mayflower Manor will be comprised of 32 quality one and two bedroom apartments, the result of two years of planning work and consultations since Primesite purchased the site in 2016. KDP Architects has designed the scheme, which is situated on the former Mayflower Industrial Estate, which had previously been vacant and in a state of disrepair. 

 

Also on the site will be a 76 bedroom care home, to be run by Newcare, currently being built by McGoff Construction. Residents of the apartments will benefit from the facilities and support of the care home, if required. 

 

Primesite sold the care home section of the site to McGoff for £3million, with the resulting funds being invested back into the scheme. Funding partner A Shade Greener Finance Ltd has partnered with Mayflower Manor Limited to fund the scheme and will be working closely with the developers for the duration of the project. 

 

Kerry Tomlinson, director at Primesite Developments and Mayflower Manor Limited, commented: “It has taken two years of hard work to bring Mayflower Manor to this point, so we are incredibly proud to be starting construction. Our aim is to transform a derelict eyesore into something of value for the local area. Working with KDP Architects, with a track record in successful health developments, and our site neighbours Newcare, known for top-quality care provision, I have no doubt that Mayflower Manor will achieve that goal. We will continue to work with them, our funding partner ASG Finance, and the local residents, who we thank for their support throughout. Our next imminent milestone is to launch the sale of the flats.” 

 

Stuart Duffy, director at KDP Architects, said: “The former brownfield site presented a great opportunity to create a private and almost semi-rural development; however conveniently located off a main road with great transport links and local amenities.  In discussion with the Local Planning Department (Sefton) we have looked to provide traditional design elements, such pitched tiled roofs and walls being predominantly face brick; which helps the scheme to sit well in the local context.  However, the elevations do have some modern touches such as grey windows, rendered panels and Juliet balconies, giving the scheme a contemporary edge.  The apartments themselves are large in area and above the national space standards, which will provide residents with a spacious and comfortable environment, with plenty of light to the lounges with full height doors.  The development also affords residents with onsite parking spaces and a communal private garden area to the rear; with some of the Ground Floor units having their own private terraces.”

 

Mayflower Manor is within walking distance to the Marks and Spencer’s Simply Food, the Post Office, and a gym. It is a 30-minute drive to Liverpool City Centre, and 15 minutes to Southport. Construction is due to be completed towards the end of 2019. 

 

Primesite Developments is a family run, Liverpool-based property developer. This is Primesite’s first foray into the over 55’s residential market, although it follows the developer’s success in care home schemes, including Hazelwell in the Wirral, dubbed “the most luxurious care home in Britain”.
