Buyers snap up Goods Yard flats in Bishop's Stortford
The first 14 apartments at the Goods Yard development next to Bishop's Stortford railway station have been reserved by buyers.
The Exchange, by Bellway North London, is the first residential phase within the wider £200m regeneration scheme by Solum.
The 149 homes will comprise a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom flats, currently priced from £262,500 to £362,500. A show home is due to be unveiled in July.
Boutique buy-to-rent business Kooky has already bought 66 homes in a further two blocks in a £20.5m deal with Bellway.
The wider scheme is bringing over 500 homes, a care home, hotel, shops, offices and two multi-storey car parks to the site. A new station square and transport interchange are being created outside the station.
Greg Allsop, sales and marketing director of Bellway North London, said: "This exciting development will meet the demand for new homes in this area and create a vibrant new community in Bishop's Stortford.
"We are delivering a range of high-quality new homes on a key site in the town which was previously disused after its former life as a railway goods yard.
"The attractive development, situated just a short walk from Bishop's Stortford town centre, will appeal to a range of home buyers such as first-time buyers and professionals working locally and in the capital.
"We've already seen a great deal of interest in these new homes, with 14 apartments being reserved in the first week, and already have plans in the pipeline for a further phase of apartments within this landmark project."
Bellway has recently committed to a second phase at the site. Southside Locks will comprise 174 more apartments in five blocks.
