Summer opening for £6.7 million flats project in Walsall
A housing project costing almost £7 million that will bring dozens of homes to Walsall will open this summer.
Development Ellum Pointe, in Silver Court, Brownhills, is set to provide 62 one and two-bedroom apartments to rent.
The homes are being brought to the area by whg – following Cardan Pointe in Walsall town centre and Keelson Pointe in Leamore.
It consists of 28 one-bedroom homes and 34 two-bedroom homes.
The developer says each apartment is built to a high specification and is suitable for people over 55 with mobility issues, with level access and a walk-in shower.
Residents will have access to communal facilities, including a dining and kitchen area, TV lounge and a multi-function room, where they can meet up with their neighbours for coffee or join in with one of the variety of activities that whg hopes to host.
Clare Thomas, whg’s head of health and wellbeing, said: “We are delighted to see the work ongoing at Ellum Pointe, our exciting new wellbeing scheme that will be perfect for those aged over 55 who are looking to ‘rightsize’.
“By living in Ellum Pointe, customers will have access to whg’s unique wellbeing service. This will tailor support to customers’ individual needs and aims to keep customers happy, healthy, active and connected with others.
“These high-quality homes are not just available to whg customers, so we would encourage everyone to spread the word about this exciting scheme to their family and friends.”
Ellum Pointe will also feature whg’s wellbeing service, which offers additional support if residents require it.
The range of support can include regular home visits and engagement with leisure activities.
Ellum Pointe, which is being constructed by Kier Living for whg, has received £1.5m funding from Homes England.
It is an 'integral' part of the regeneration work that whg is leading on in Silver Court, which will provide a total of 157 new, affordable homes, of which 107 will be for affordable rent and 50 for outright sale.
Work is currently underway at Silver Waters, a £3.3m development within the Silver Court regeneration scheme.
This has been part-funded by Homes England and delivered by partnership homes developer Lovell and will provide 32 homes, including 14 Rent to Buy and 18 Shared Ownership properties.
