Liverpool-based property developer Primesite Developments has begun works on Mayflower Manor which will comprise 32 one and two-bedroom apartments
Work has started on a residential development for people aged 55 and over in Formby.
Liverpool-based property developer Primesite Developments has begun works on Mayflower Manor which will comprise 32 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, located 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 £3m, with the resulting funds being invested back into the scheme. Funding partner A Shade Greener Finance has partnered with Mayflower Manor 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, said: “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.”
Primesite Developments is a family-run firm and this is its first foray into the over 55s residential market, although it follows the developer’s success in care home schemes, including Hazelwell in the Wirral.
