Placefirst Reaches Construction Milestone at Manchester Residential Scheme

Placefirst’s £8m Manchester residential scheme of 53 high quality apartments in Longsight has topped out. Placefirst is a leading and award-winning build-to-rent provider with over 1,300 homes, and a further 1,000 in the pipeline and under construction.

Work on the development began in March 2021. The topping out represents an exciting construction milestone, with the former job centre’s rooftop extension now complete and the building reaching its highest point.

The rooftop extension has given a new lease of life to this building and will accommodate eight homes with stunning views across to the Manchester City Centre skyline. Ground floor residents will have the luxury of private entrances and dual aspects with windows at the front and rear.

The overall scheme comprises a mix of high-specification apartments, ranging from studios to 3 beds, and is on track for completion in Spring 2022.

Alongside the topping out, the internal fit out is also well underway and the build programme is making great progress. Interiors will include high quality, modern kitchens and bathrooms and residents can expect top spec finishes throughout and bright communal areas. All apartments will also be available with a furniture package, and show homes will be launching in the coming weeks.

Longsight has fantastic links to the centre of Manchester, making it an ideal location for commuters, and in turn shall add further value to the local community with increased footfall for amenities and leisure facilities.

Placefirst worked with Project 3 Architects to repurpose and transform the former job centre, paying close attention to sustainability and modern design. The regeneration specialists also partnered with an arboriculturist and Manchester City Council to plant new trees and install new public realm, also adding a perimeter hedge and protect high value trees in the southwest corner of the site.

Energy efficiency of the apartments will be maximised by incorporating renewable sources such as solar panels, improving Psi values to limit heat loss and electric panel heaters that have a high level of control for residents.

All apartments will be available for long-term let through Placefirst as part the professional landlord’s commitment to offering a viable alternative to outright home ownership. Residents will also benefit from a dedicated resident services manager as part of the developer’s dedication to high quality service and community engagement within their schemes.

David Mawson, chief executive at Placefirst commented: “We are excited to have reached this construction milestone where despite the challenges of the past year, the hard work undertaken by our team and partners has seen a former derelict building brought back into use, to transform it into a thriving, sustainable neighbourhood and providing 53 new homes.

“This development in the up-and-coming area of Longsight is another great demonstration of our commitment to placemaking and shall provide high-quality apartment living for local residents with excellent links to Manchester City Centre and surrounding areas.

“To see the building topping out is a great step in bringing this building back to life, and we look forward to its completion next year and residents moving in.”

Craig Smith, architect director for Project 3 Architects, added: “It has been fantastic to work in partnership with Placefirst on this project for the adaptive re-use of a former office building, and witness the completion of the roof structure. The rooftop extension, which has been designed to complement the existing surroundings, helps bring the building to life and will create desirable and attractive much-needed homes for local residents, whilst also offering stunning views of the city skyline.”

Placefirst’s major £65m City Centre Regeneration Plans Approved by Wolverhampton Council

A proposal by Placefirst for a transformative regeneration scheme of 366 new homes and commercial space in the heart of Wolverhampton’s historic Canalside Quarter has been approved.

The £65m proposal directed by the leading UK build-to-rent provider is for an ambitious residential scheme, to be located close to Wolverhampton’s new £150m transport Interchange, on land off Lower Horseley Fields in the city centre.

Following approval at planning committee earlier in the year, full planning permission and listed building consent has now been granted.

The development will deliver a new canalside community as part of a wider regeneration project in the area, working alongside the City of Wolverhampton Council, Canal and River Trust and West Midlands Combined Authority. It will provide a mix of townhouses, new build apartments and commercial space across five acres of brownfield land.

Sensitive restoration of heritage canalside properties including several listed buildings, and major environmental improvements will be implemented in the scheme, which is designed by award-winning architecture practice jmarchitects, with WSP as planning and heritage consultants.

Included in the regeneration and Placefirst’s commitment to placemaking, a new promenade, public open spaces, landscaping and pedestrian access to the canal towpath will also be created, taking full advantage of the heritage waterways.

The development is part of Placefirst’s expansion to the West Midlands joining its portfolio of national regeneration projects, and once complete, will transform this former industrial area into a vibrant canalside community with a mix of housing options. Following site preparation, work is expected to start on site in Summer 2022.

Darran Lawless, development director for Placefirst commented: “We are delighted to receive full planning approval for this transformative development in Wolverhampton’s Canalside Quarter. We are proud of all the hard work undertaken by the whole team and our partners, that will enable a brownfiled site situated in such a historic location to reach its true potential, creating an exciting, sustainable new neighbourhood.

“The focus on placemaking and development of public realm at this ­waterside development, is another example of Placefirst’s commitment to delivering schemes that will rejuvenate communities, and adds to our track record of creating neighbourhoods with a real sense of place.”

Councillor Stephen Simkins, City of Wolverhampton Council Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: “The full planning permission and listed building consent now gives Placefirst the green light to get this transformational scheme in Wolverhampton off the ground next year.

“They will deliver a nationally significant development that not only brings back into use a large parcel of brownfield land but also enables the city to take advantage of our fantastic waterways, and the heritage that comes with it, to provide a sustainable community where people want to live and work, now and in the future.

“The Placefirst scheme will also generate around 150 jobs and boost our economic recovery from Covid-19.

“Urban living forms a critical part of how we are re-imagining our city centre and will help us meet the increasing demand for housing.

“Canalside is a large and exciting opportunity and the Council is working hard with its partners to provide the determined and skilful leadership needed to realise opportunities like this.”

Esh Winning CGI Placefirst

Plans approved for Placefirst’s £11m Durham residential scheme

Leading and award-winning build-to-rent provider Placefirst has had plans for an £11m residential development in Esh Winning approved by Durham County Council today.

The development is located six miles west of Durham city centre, and will transform a two-hectare brownfield site that has been derelict for over a decade, including the delivery of 54 bungalows – the largest delivery of bungalows in a generation.

Placefirst, in partnership with architect POD Newcastle and landscape architect Southern Green, will deliver 89 high-quality homes in total, a mix of bungalows and three-bedroom properties, to create a multi-generational community.

As regeneration specialists, Placefirst’s commitment to placemaking and sustainability is showcased through the creation of unique areas of open space and landscaping, which intergrate existing high value trees and Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).  The homes will also be modern and energy efficient, minimising fuel bills for residents.

All Placefirst homes and neighbourhoods are specifically designed and built for quality private rental. Esh Winning is no different, and the development is also set to provide a boost to the village, benefiting local services, businesses and amenities.  The site’s proximity to the open countryside and green space will be attractive to new residents, as well as being within short commuting distance to key areas of employment.

The planned development represents Placefirst’s continued dedication to the single family housing BTR market, and builds on their strong track record of delivering other schemes including The Welsh Streets in Liverpool, and Sky Edge in Sheffield.

Esh Winning will also follow in the footsteps of other successful Placefirst schemes in the region, such as The Green, a radical transformation of three streets of Victorian houses in Hartlepool, and the hugely popular Scholar’s View, a 116 home new build neighbourhood in Hetton-le-Hole in Sunderland, which is due to be completed in early 2022.

Darran Lawless, development director at Placefirst commented: “We are delighted that Durham County Council has approved our plans to transform this previously derelict site into a high-quality sustainable neighbourhood, with much needed new homes for the local area. This exciting scheme will build on our success within the North East where we are establishing a stunning portfolio of developments.

“Our track record of placemaking and building sustainable communities is reflected in our plans for Esh Winning, which will be a significant regeneration scheme, making a lasting and positive impact on the local community. We look forward to starting work onsite in 2022.”

Ward Councillor Marion Wilson said: “ This development will be a fantastic addition to Esh Winning.  It’s great to see that 54 much needed bungalows will be brought to the village along with family housing. This development will help support and retain local businesses and bring economic benefit to the area.”

Central Street at the heart of Bolton regeneration plans

Space has been cleared for more than 150 town centre homes as another of Bolton Council’s key regeneration sites begins to take shape.

Council Leader, Cllr Martyn Cox, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Cllr Adele Warren, and Placefirst’s Development Director Darran Lawless, recently visited Central Street where a major development scheme is gathering momentum.

After securing Brownfield Housing Land funding, the site has now been cleared by Forshaw Demolition Limited ahead of work by leading and award-winning build-to-rent provider Placefirst to deliver over 150 homes, commercial units, and pedestrian-priority spaces.

Central Street will form part of the wider Croal Valley intervention area which will provide a mixture of riverside housing and green space alongside a reanimated River Croal.

The broader scheme will also provide a scenic active travel link between Queens Park and the town centre.

It is one of six key intervention areas in the Bolton town centre masterplan, with the council establishing a £100m fund to attract private sector investment.

The land at Central Street, including the shops and car park is owned by Bolton Council after it was acquired during 2018 and 2019.

Cllr Cox said: “There is visible progress being made at regeneration sites across the town centre and it was great to visit Central Street to see the work first-hand.

“A key part of our masterplan is redeveloping brownfield land and making the town centre a vibrant and attractive place to live.

“I look forward to watching the progress both at Central Street and at other sites in the weeks and months to come.”

Cllr Warren said: “Not only will this development provide much needed homes to meet growing demand, but the Croal Valley intervention area will also create green space and boost active travel.

“Along with last week’s news about the Bolton College of Medical Sciences and securing Greater Manchester Brownfield Housing funding for Farnworth, there is real momentum behind regeneration projects right across the borough.”

Darran Lawless, development director at Placefirst said:

“We’re excited to be involved in this transformational development with Bolton Council, to deliver new high-quality homes for rent in the town centre.

“Regeneration of this former brownfield site is another example of our dedication to placemaking and creating thriving neighbourhoods where people want to live.

“Visiting the site to see the progress the teams have made has been fantastic. We look forward to the progression of this project, and the boost it will provide to the local economy.”

Plans approved to renovate Victorian Cottage within Placefirst’s Welsh Streets scheme

Award-winning build-to-rent provider Placefirst has had plans approved to renovate a derelict historical house and garage within their existing Welsh Streets scheme in Liverpool, to create three bespoke high-spec homes with retained period features.

As part of the penultimate phase of the impressive Welsh Streets development, work on Ivy Cottage will commence in 2022, integrating it into the wider regeneration of the overall development.

Placefirst is excited to bring back into use and secure the long-term future of Ivy Cottage, which was in danger of being lost. Designed by MBED Architects, attention to detail and retaining the property’s original features has been paramount. The material palette will be informed by and similar to that used on other existing buildings within the development.

Work began in 2016 on the Welsh Streets development in the Toxteth area of Liverpool. As well as fantastic links to the city centre and large local parks, the area is famous for featuring in the BBC drama Peaky Blinders, the birthplace of The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, and previous home of Jean Alexander.

Since commencing, Welsh Streets comprises over 280 refurbished and new-build homes ranging from one to five bedrooms, spread across five streets. Work has also been completed across the site to create improved public realm, street planting and communal open space.

Placefirst has worked collaboratively with Liverpool City Council to bring life back to Welsh Streets, providing high-spec accommodation with private gardens, communal spaces and stylish interiors.

This stage signifies Placefirst’s continued commitment to the regeneration of the area and further activation of South Street, which will see this once secondary alley route become a safe and welcoming environment for residents.

David Mawson, chief executive for Placefirst, commented: “We are thrilled to receive planning approval for the transformative redevelopment of Ivy Cottage, a stunning historical building that shall be sensitively reused to create three bespoke family homes, and give the building a new lease of life.

“The attention to detail in retaining its period features will maintain its character and make it a stand out feature of the thriving Welsh Streets development.

“We look forward to the continued progression of this project and are proud to be bringing life back to a charming Victorian building, for new residents to enjoy.”

Placefirst appoints new Chief Executive and Chairman to lead next phase of growth

Placefirst, one of the UK’s leading providers of award-winning rental communities, is pleased to announce the appointment of St Modwen veteran Bill Oliver as Chairman and Kier’s David Mawson as Chief Executive as the firm continues its ambitious expansion plans. Bill and David will begin in early March 2020, taking over from David Smith-Milne, Placefirst’s founder.

Bill, a veteran of the housebuilding market with over 35 years’ experience, currently serves as Non-Executive Deputy Chairman of Churchill Retirement Plc and Non-Executive Director of Safestore Holdings Plc. Bill retired from the Board of FTSE 250 property developer St Modwen in 2016, having joined as Finance Director in 2000 before stepping up the role of CEO four years later. Prior to St Modwen, he held roles at Barratt Developments, Alfred McAlpine, The Rutland Group and Dwyer Estates. A qualified Chartered Accountant, Bill was a member of the advisory board of the Government’s Regeneration Investment Organisation and a Land Commissioner for the West Midlands Combined Authority.

David Mawson is an experienced managing director with a track record in delivering organic development and profitable growth. He joins from Kier Group plc where he latterly led the group’s FM Business, Housing Maintenance Business and Environmental Business. Prior to Kier, David held a number of Director roles at Connaught and Wharfedale Developments and had a voluntary position as a Non-Executive Board Member of Community Gateway Housing Association.

Placefirst is a pioneer of the fast-growing BTR (build-to-rent) market and has delivered over 500 homes across the north of England, specialising in transforming neglected inner-urban neighbourhoods through innovative refurbishment, development and a commitment to community placemaking.

A blend of cornerstone and new investment from ESO Capital supports Placefirst’s ambitious growth plans. With a secured pipeline of over 1,500 homes and an ambition to deliver 4,000 homes by 2023, the company is set to expand from its north of England base into new regions including the Midlands and Scotland. The near-term development pipeline includes new sites at Wolverhampton, Bolton, Newcastle and Manchester.

The company has significantly broadened its senior executive team under the leadership of Placefirst founder David Smith-Milne, who led the business since its foundation in 2009 and has now stepped back from the managing director role as part of a transition plan. David was instrumental in shaping the strategy and building the strong relationships with local authorities, landowners and other stakeholders which set the foundations for strong future growth. David has sold a substantial amount of his stock in Placefirst to ESO Capital, albeit remains a significant shareholder. He is now exploring other property start-up ventures.

Bill Oliver, Chairman of Placefirst, commented:

Placefirst is one of the UK’s truly inspirational developers of rental housing, providing modern families with the quality homes they need. There is no coincidence that the build-to-rent market is growing rapidly as we struggle as a nation to solve the acute shorting of housing. I am very much looking forward to applying my experience to support Placefirst’s growth.

Bill Oliver

 

David Mawson, incoming Chief Executive of Placefirst, added:

I am delighted to be joining Placefirst at such an exciting time for the company. Through the strong leadership of founder David Smith-Milne, Placefirst has quickly established itself as a leader in the UK build-to-rent market and has an ambitious pipeline of funded growth. I’m looking forward to working with the talented Placefirst team and hitting the ground running when I join in early 2020.

David Mawson

David Smith-Milne, founder and former managing director of Placefirst, commented:

Having founded Placefirst some 10 years ago, I am proud that we are now firmly recognised as a pioneer in developing homes for rent properties. It is a testament to the team that Placefirst offers a genuine quality alternative to home ownership for the growing number of in-work households unable to access home ownership and our commitment to quality has resulted in over 20 national and regional awards over the last three years. I have no doubt that the firm will go from strength to strength.

David Christie, Head of ESO Real Estate, commented:

David Smith-Milne’s enthusiasm and drive to grow Placefirst was one of the key reasons we were attracted to first invest in the business back in 2016. We want to thank him for all his hard work and dedication and wish him well for the future. We welcome Bill Oliver and David Mawson, who offer a wealth of industry knowledge, and look forward to working with them as Placefirst pushes forward with its next phase of growth towards becoming a national leader in UK build-to-rent housing.

Plans to deliver 116 purpose-built rental homes on a former primary school site in Hetton-le-Hole, Sunderland have been approved by the city council.

The scheme from award-winning build-to-rent (BtR) developer Placefirst will redevelop the former Easington Lane primary school site – that has remained vacant since the school was relocated in 2006 – with a mix of house-types including bungalows, mews homes and townhouses to appeal to households of all sizes.

Properties will range from two to four-bedroom homes with high-quality public realm, including a new children’s play area and a range of shared landscaped courtyard gardens overlooked by the properties.

Following the granting of planning permission, Placefirst aim to commence construction this Summer, working with in-house contractor, Placefirst Construction.

The Hetton-le-Hole scheme will be Placefirst’s second family build-to-rent community in the North East, following The Green in Hartlepool where 86 homes have been developed around a new urban park.

David Smith-Milne, managing director of Placefirst, said: “Our plans for Hetton-le-Hole will deliver best in class rental homes for a growing demographic that rely on renting for their housing needs. Through Placefirst’s build-to-rent approach our residents are at the forefront of everything we do – we think long-term about the places we create and do as much as we can to build homes in an attractive, professionally managed setting where our residents enjoy living.

“More families are renting than ever before and the need for a reliable, quality offer has never been greater. Our homes offer a genuine, high-quality alternative for working families priced out of the housing market, or who prefer to the flexibility of renting.”

Placefirst announces plans for £27.5m Build to Rent Urban Village in Bolton

Award-winning Build to Rent (BTR) developer Placefirst has unveiled its vision to transform a key site in Bolton Council’s town centre masterplan.

Central Street car park, which lies in the Croal Valley area, is set to be transformed in a £27.5m development with the town’s first purpose-built, multi-generational BTR urban village.

The scheme will comprise four blocks designed around a network of pedestrian priority streets, courtyards, rooftop terraces and resident gardens.

Designed to appeal to young and old, the scheme proposes a diverse mix of circa 200 homes including family town houses, downsizer apartments, and a choice of one and two-bedroom apartments.

Complementing the residential elements of the scheme, Placefirst is also proposing up to 15,000 sq.ft of Grade A office space, and a range of ground floor commercial units along Deansgate, a key thoroughfare in Bolton town centre.

Working with MCAU architects, the scheme has been designed to complement the historic fabric of Bolton centre through a mix of medium-rise buildings set out to create a network of people-friendly streets, squares and courtyards. An outdoor art gallery is also being explored to showcase Bolton’s creativity.

The site is bounded to the north by the River Croal and, in partnership with Bolton Council, Placefirst will explore options to enhance the riverside environment as part of wider council strategy to improve pedestrian links along the river.

A planning application will be submitted later this year and, subject to approval, Placefirst aims to start work on site by early 2020 with in-house contractor, Placefirst Construction.

David Smith-Milne, managing director of Placefirst, commented:

Bolton Council has set out an ambitious vision for the town centre and we are excited to be working with such a forward-thinking local authority. We have developed our plans for Central Street with the wider town centre framework in mind and are confident our proposals will reflect that ambition.

Having cut our teeth delivering complex refurbishment projects in regeneration areas, Bolton represents an important new milestone for Placefirst as our first major town centre new-build BTR community. This project will show that town centre, urban living isn’t just for young people living in boring apartments. Through good design and excellent placemaking, schemes such as this will appeal to families, downsizers and the elderly, living together in a genuinely multi-generational community.

As a build-to-rent developer and landlord, Placefirst put the end-user at the forefront of our designs, ensuring we deliver great homes complimented by attractive amenity spaces that bring communities together. Central Street embraces this thinking through the creation of a new residential neighbourhood characterised by human scale urban design and an engaging public realm strategy.

It is the latest in a series of announcements as part of Bolton Council’s masterplan to redevelop the town centre.

The council is working with investors and developers to bring schemes forward in five areas – Croal Valley, Cheadle Square, Church Wharf, Crompton Place, and Trinity Quarter.

Last week it was revealed that the masterplan is now worth £1.2bn thanks to increasing amounts of private sector investment.

Deputy leader of Bolton Council and portfolio holder for regeneration, Cllr Ebrahim Adia, said:

The council’s £100m fund has triggered significant developer and investor confidence in Bolton, and it’s great to see another exciting residential scheme coming forward for our town centre masterplan.

It would see an area of land that is rundown and in need of redevelopment completely transformed, with our first build to rent neighbourhood.

We are delighted to be working with Placefirst on this regeneration opportunity, and the scheme will provide high-quality housing on a brownfield site.

Announcements made so far in the masterplan include: confirmation in principle of over £250m of private sector investment funding to replace Crompton Place Shopping Centre on Victoria Square; £48m plans for Trinity Gateway by Bolton Regeneration Limited, which is also involved in Crompton Place; Muse Developments submitting a planning application for a £150 million new neighbourhood in Church Wharf and Forshaw Developments’ planning application for a £35m residential development on land fronting St Georges Road in the Croal Valley site.

Alongside Bolton, Placefirst is working on a number of new BTR communities across the North of England set to commence in 2019. These include 113 homes in Sheffield, 116 in Sunderland, and 52 new-build homes in Liverpool as part of the wider regeneration of Welsh Streets.

Placefirst secure planning for £16.5m BTR community in Sheffield

Sheffield City Council has approved a planning application from Placefirst, the award-winning build-to-rent developer, to transform a long-term vacant site into a new, purpose-built rental community of 113 family homes.

Under the proposals approved by the council’s Planning Committee on 12th March, Placefirst plan to build a mix of three and four-bedroom family homes off Skye Edge Avenue. The site, located on a prominent position overlooking Sheffield city centre, had previously been awaiting redevelopment since 2006.

Skye Edge is located on the eastern edge of Sheffield city centre and has been vacant since a deck-access housing scheme built in the 1970’s was demolished in 2006. Since then the site has been used as informal open space by the local community and, under the approved plans, Placefirst will retain a large area of open space complimented by a new children’s play area.

Placefirst aim to commence construction in May 2019, working with in-house contractor, Placefirst Construction. The first homes should be ready to welcome new families from April 2020, with show homes expected to be ready 2-3 months earlier. Full completion of Skye Edge is anticipated by December 2020.

David Smith-Milne, Managing Director of Placefirst, commented: “Skye Edge will set a new benchmark in private renting for the families of Sheffield. Through our build-to-rent approach, not only will we create best-in-class homes, we will compliment those homes with professionally managed outdoor spaces where neighbours can socialise, and a community can flourish.

“More families are renting than ever before and the need for a reliable, quality offer has never been greater. Our homes offer a genuine, high-quality alternative for working families priced out of the housing market, or who prefer to the flexibility of renting.”

Skye Edge will be the first purpose-built BTR development from regeneration specialist Placefirst, a Manchester-based company that has successfully transformed several inner urban sites through innovative remodelling of existing properties including the multi award-winning Welsh Streets in Toxteth, Liverpool.

Placefirst Submit Plans for First New-Build Homes at Award Winning Welsh Streets Development

The award-winning regeneration of The Welsh Streets took another step forward this week as Placefirst submitted plans for 52 new-build homes as part of the ongoing transformation of Victorian terraced streets.

Under plans submitted to Liverpool City Council this week, the latest £8m proposal is set to deliver a mix of 1/2/3/4-bedroom houses as part of a wider 299 home masterplan that includes the comprehensive refurbishment of over 300 Victorian terraced properties.

The newly built homes, located on Voelas Street, South Street and Wynnstay Street, will occupy a mix of longstanding vacant sites and areas where refurbishment has not been possible. Once delivered, the new homes will stitch together the historic street pattern of The Welsh Streets and transform South Street, a key pedestrian route currently characterised by blank gable walls.

The new homes have been designed to create a modern, complimentary contrast with the Victorian terraces and use a palette of materials that ensure a consistent streetscape design across The Welsh Streets. Similar to the refurbished properties, the new homes will have access to attractive landscaped communal avenues which are replacing traditional yards and alleys typically associated with terraced housing.

IMAGE ABOVE: A computer generated image of the proposed homes on South Street.

 

Proposals for the new-build homes were shared with the local community and senior council officers at a public consultation event held at Placefirst’s marketing suite on 14th December 2018.

Subject to planning approval and enabling works, Placefirst aim to commence construction by Summer 2019, working with in-house contractor, Placefirst Construction.

David Smith-Milne, Managing Director of Placefirst commented:

“These new designs for Welsh Streets will make a great contribution to the ongoing regeneration of this historic neighbourhood, and offer even more people a genuine alternative to volume housebuilder solutions that are increasingly homogenous and devoid of any genuine placemaking.

At a time when Build-to-Rent is largely characterised by small, urban apartments aimed at the young, and ownership starter-homes offer little other that small, identikit houses disconnected from established communities, Placefirst are creating aspirational, larger and architecturally exciting homes and leading the way in housing can be exciting and interesting once again.

Families with children make up the largest section of the private rented sector, yet very few are benefitting from the market clamour to Build-to-Rent. We are proud of our award-winning track record in Build-to-Rent communities and these new properties will offer long-term and secure residencies for their new occupiers when they become available in early 2020.”
