The Bromford Homes building has been split into three phases with the first 12 apartments in phase one of the project expected to be completed by March.

Penny Downing, Bromford’s sales and marketing director, said: “We can never quite predict the great British weather but we’re pleased with how the building work has progressed so far and the northern end of the site in particular is starting to really come alive.

She added: “We’re also delighted that we will soon be able to open ourselves up in our marketing suite to welcome customers to see the range of apartments on offer, hear about the lifestyle of our retirement living schemes, and how living in Park Gardens will offer a safe, secure and happy home as well as a lively community for residents and the wider community to enjoy.”

The complex will consist of 78 retirement homes, a cafe, beauty salon and gymnasium.
