Muse closes in on phase four Stockton completion
The developer is working with Homes England and registered provider Thirteen to deliver 113 affordable homes at Northshore, Stockton-on-Tees.
A stakeholders tour event was held recently as the development partnership prepares to welcome the first residents in the coming months. Three phases have already been delivered at Northshore.
The new homes, which were part funded by the Tees Valley Combined Authority, will be energy efficient and available through both shared ownership and affordable rent.
Andrew Milne, senior development manager at Muse, said: “The latest phase of affordable homes at Northshore is a crucial element in the overall community that we’re creating together with our partners and we’re delighted with the progress on site.
“Less than a mile from Stockton’s high street, the transformation of a former industrial site into a welcoming, connected place where people want to live, work and spend their leisure time is well underway.
“It was a pleasure to share with our investment partners not only the progress made in the delivery of quality affordable homes but also the wider development, as part of the regeneration of the town centre and River Tees which will benefit the whole community.”
Alastair Haworth, senior development manager at Homes England, said: “Working with our partners, it is great to see a further phase of high-quality homes being delivered, creating a well-designed place to support an ever-growing community at Northshore. A place that people will be proud to call home.”
John Manning, construction and build director at Thirteen, said: “We enjoy a fantastic, well-established working relationship with Muse and all the partners involved. It’s great to see the incredible progress on the site, which is the culmination of genuine teamwork.
“This development is a great example of reusing a redundant brownfield site to provide high-quality, affordable homes in an attractive setting with river frontage.”
The wider Northshore neighbourhood is being delivered by Muse, in partnership with Homes England and Stockton-on-Tees Council.
By the project’s end, the 56-acre gateway community will have provided in the region of 350 homes across a range of tenures. Already delivered are 80,000 sq ft of offices and a 128-bedroom Hampton by Hilton hotel with a number of public spaces.
