Construction has begun on a major redevelopment scheme at Berry Court in the heart of Bournemouth that will create 113 high-quality homes for rent and a new multi-level car park.
Residential accommodation for private rent and public car park
It follows approval from Bournemouth Council’s Cabinet to rejuvenate the current surface car park in St Peter’s Road as a way of increasing the variety of living accommodation in the town centre.
On completion, the apartments will be available for rent to fulfil a recognised demand from people who are saving towards, or do not wish to commit to, owner occupation, or who simply prefer the flexibility and lifestyle choice of renting a home close to the centre of town.
As well as relocating all 155 public spaces the current surface car park offers, the new multi-decked parking will house spaces for use by the new flats.
Following a two-year build programme, Radian Group will fund, own and market the homes, which include one, two and three-bedroom apartments, under a long lease from the Council.
