A first look at East Float at Wirral Waters
House by Urban Splash and Peel L&P have unveiled a new image showing the future of East Float, a new community that will form part of the Northbank neighbourhood at Wirral Waters in Merseyside.
When complete, East Float will bring 350 homes to Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters, with the new CGI showing the distinctive, red Row House homes, a new take on the Victorian terrace which comes in three sizes and layouts. Row House is surrounded by the award-winning Town House homes – properties which occupy a prime position overlooking the water – and the Mansion House apartments. The first homes will be launched at an event in the summer.
The homes are the latest reveal at Wirral Waters where a range of projects are onsite and both the Four Bridges and Northbank neighbourhoods are progressing at pace.
Richard Mawdsley, Director of Development for Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters, commented: “Working in this joint venture with House by Urban Splash we will transform East Float into a contemporary waterside community for anyone looking to make Wirral Waters their home. Together with the new public realm, that includes new pocket parks and dockside walkways, these innovative new homes from Urban Splash will help create a new exciting, diverse and healthy community.”
Peel L&P is delivering the East Float community within the Northbank neighbourhood in a 50/50 joint venture with House by Urban Splash to create a vibrant new waterside offering.
Simon Humphreys of House by Urban Splash added: “We are delighted to be able to share our vision in this brand-new CGI. We’re bringing Town Houses, apartments and the bold and innovative new housing typology in Row House – and we’re excited to premiere it in Merseyside.
“Urban Splash was founded in Merseyside, creating hundreds of thousands of sq ft of workspace as well as city centre apartments in Liverpool; 28 years on we’re immensely proud to be back in the region and bringing a stunning new development to the area.”
Like the House by Urban Splash Town House and Mansion House homes, Row House has been designed by Liverpool-based architects shedkm. Buyers will have a wide range of options to make their home their own - including the option of a rooftop terrace. Row House represents a modern mews house, or ‘Urban Cottage’, bringing a more compact terrace form to the portfolio at an affordable price range, meaning more people can get on the housing ladder with a home customised to meet their individual lifestyle needs. Each home is characterised by a central, oversized, floor-to-ceiling window, which firmly delivers on the House by Urban Splash promise, to deliver design-led, bright open spaces for living.
East Float boasts quiet pedestrianised streets, additional green space for residents with large communal gardens - in addition to private outdoor space, gardens or terraces – and all located in a prime waterside location.
