£100M UK residential project receives green light

WCN Editorial Team 8 Feb 2017 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based developer U+I Group has secured planning consent from Maidstone Council’s Planning Committee for its £100M residential project in England, UK.

The proposed development, to be built on the Royal Engineers Road, will include the construction of 310 new homes, as well as public realm and landscaping improvements. Of the total 310 homes, 220 units could be delivered as 'build-to-rent' or speculative homes for sale.

The development will benefit from an outdoor area, a club lounge and an on site management team to handle all tenant queries.

Designed by Guy Hollaway, the scheme will feature a range of buildings from 8-18 floors.

U+I deputy CEO Richard Upton said: "We are delighted that Maidstone Council shares our enthusiasm for these proposals, which will deliver a well-designed scheme on a prominent gateway site. Maidstone is famous for its paper mills and thread twisting and is an exceptional and relatively affordable place to live.

"U+I has woven the history of this County town into the architecture and landscape throughout the proposal. The project team has worked hard over the past year to develop a creative and compelling vision for the Royal Engineers Road.”

The project is expected to be complete in the next two to three years.
