Situated on the banks of the River Lune in this historic University City, we are regenerating the Mainway estate to create beautiful new affordable homes that are fit for the future.
Existing, non-traditionally built homes are being radically retrofitted to create stylish, modern and zero carbon homes. These will be situated adjacent to over 200 new affordable homes. The community will be set within beautifully landscaped open space, bound with good quality public realm and new community infrastructure.
From the beginning residents have wanted somewhere to come home to that they can be proud of, somewhere to call home, that is visibly cared for, affordable and inexpensive to live in and keep warm.
The development responds to our masterplan which was developed to retain and enhance as much of the existing built environment as possible, retrofitting taking preference over unsustainable demolition.
Existing buildings are being transformed and new ones created to create a future proof model for affordable housing in this historic city.
