CONSTRUCTION is underway on a new over 55s retirement development in Balsall Common.
Albany Meadows will consist of 39 homes featuring a mix of two-bed bungalows, three-bed houses and two-bed apartments, all with access to landscaped green spaces, car parking and a range of village amenities and services. A village manager and estates team will take care of all the outdoor spaces, landscaping and communal areas.
Albany Meadows will also offer a range of services from regular activities and exercise programmes to care services available to each home, which can be used with complete flexibility to work best for each homeowner’s lifestyle now and in the future.
Albany Meadows is being delivered and managed by Amber Infrastructure, an international provider of long-term social, infrastructure and property projects.
Project director Mike Leto said: “We are delighted to see construction underway on our latest project. Amber has recognised the growing demand for delivering both quality and choice for the older homeowner.
“Albany Meadows will provide contemporary, well specified homes, but more than that residents can relax and enjoy life in a safe, peaceful and attractive village environment.
“The Albany Lounge, activity spaces and central Village Green will become community spaces that will be the social hub of Albany Meadows village life, alongside additional services and flexible care provision to support long term independent living and create an enviable retirement lifestyle.”
The development is located off Kenilworth Road, adjacent to the existing Barchester care home Harper Fields, and Seddon Construction are the main contractors on site.
The first residents are expected to move in in autumn 2018.
To ensure local property demands are met first, the opportunity to purchase a property at Albany Meadows will initially be made available exclusively to people living in, or connected to, the Solihull borough area.
