Build-to-rent developer Placefirst secures 12 reservations at launch of phase two of £10m award-winning scheme in Morecambe

Placefirst, the Manchester-based build-to-rent developer, has secured reservations on 12 homes at the launch of phase two of its scheme to transform empty properties in the west end of Morecambe, Lancs.

At a launch event over the weekend of 16th – 17th February, prospective residents reserved 12 of 59 new homes in the second stage of the £10m award-winning scheme at a launch event that attracted more than 50 visitors.

With properties ranging in size from five-bedroom houses to one-bedroom apartments, Placefirst staged the two-day event to allow prospective residents to visit three show homes and reserve their new home.

Located within a short walk of Morecambe’s famous promenade, West End Two follows on from the adjacent West End One, a development of 51 townhouses and apartments that was voted the UK’s Best Residential Refurbishment Project at the 2017 Sunday Times British Homes Awards.

The new homes at West End Two have been created through innovative remodelling of large Victorian properties, resulting in a bespoke collection of houses, duplexes and apartments built to appeal to a wide variety of households.

The homes have been built by Placefirst’s in-house contractor, Placefirst Construction, with management of the development to be undertaken by Placefirst’s Resident Services team.

Located off Regent Road between Chatsworth Road and Balmoral Road and with rents from £540 – £884 per calendar month with no third-party letting agent fees, West End Two will offer best in class accommodation for households looking for a better rental experience.

Residents at all Placefirst developments are asked to sign a Neighbourhood Pledge as part of the firm’s commitment to improving standards in the private rental sector.

Victoria Hoare, head of resident services at Placefirst, said: “Following the success of West End One, securing reservations on 20% of the homes available at launch proves the continued demand for high quality, professionally managed rental properties in the West End of Morecambe.

“Since its completion in October 2016, the first phase has been fully let and we continue to receive regular enquiries for the homes. West End Two is building on that success, offering the same high standards of accommodation within the historic envelope of these grand Victorian properties.

“The Placefirst team works tirelessly to ensure our residents have a great home, backed up by secure tenures and a ‘best in class’ landlord service. We design, build and maintain all our developments and aim to provide a level of service that makes our residents feel secure, valued and respected.”

Placefirst expect the first homes in West End Two to be ready to occupy from April 2019, with full completion anticipated by the autumn.
