Work starts on new homes and office development in Leicestershire village

Work has officially started on a new homes and office development in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire.

The mixed-use site will bring nine properties and two commercial offices to the area, which will be marketed by Newtown Living.

Chartered quantity surveyor and project management experts Addison Hunt has been appointed to provide project management and quantity surveying services and will work alongside property development and construction company GS Developments, and architects rg+p, to deliver the project.

Located in Granite Way, the development will comprise of two and 2.5-storey homes with traditional Georgian-style features such as warm red multi-brick with a detailed light stone appearance and sash windows.

The commercial unit has been designed to form a bridge between existing commercial use and residential development nearby. Similar materials to the properties will be used, but with a contemporary look and feel in order to be recognised as an office building.

Simon Collin, director of Addison Hunt, said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed to work on this project. The development of the site will provide a much more positive outlook and sense of arrival as passers-by travel through Mountsorrel.

“We look forward to work progressing and bringing a new mixed-use development to the area, which has been designed to fit in with the current surroundings.”

Granite Way continues the relationship between the firms, with recent Leicestershire project completions on warehouse development at Parker Drive and affordable housing scheme at Abbey Meadows which won ‘Residential Regeneration Project of the Year’ award at the Insider Media East Midlands Property Awards.

Mandeep Singh, director of GS Developments said: “It’s great to be working alongside Addison Hunt to deliver another fantastic project in the Leicestershire area.

“After a number of years of planning and design work we’re delighted to finally see the build get underway, which will enhance and bring more people to the site to live and work.”

Neeley Turrell, Estates Manager at Newtown Living, said: “We’re looking forward to the homes being complete and providing residents with new rental properties, given the current demand for high-quality homes in Leicestershire.”

Since its inception in 2016 Addison Hunt, which is led by company directors Chris Hunt and Simon Collin, has grown to a team of nine professionals delivering multi-million-pound projects across the Midlands.
