Despite the disruption caused by COVID-19, a new apartment development in St Helens, Merseyside, is still on track for completion in 2021.
HJ Collection purchased the site 20 Q4 2019, its being developed in partnership with Empire Property Concepts and works have continued where possible and are now fully recommenced on-site, just as the appointed Architects updated the development plans and building regulations to commence the next phase of the build.
The new “Crown Buildings” development will see the refurbishment and extension of buildings into a new residential scheme offering 112 high-end one and two-bedroom apartments.
Reece Mennie, Founder and CEO of HJ Collection, said: “Despite the challenges experienced as a result of COVID-19, HJ Collection have worked hard to ensure all current developments, including the Crown Buildings, will not be impacted and will still complete on time. With clear plans for the Council to renovate the region, our decision to invest and develop in St Helens will prove incredibly valuable.”
Crown Buildings is one of three current HJ Collection developments and is being developed alongside a commercial and residential unit in Barnsley town centre, together with a 14-apartment site in Doncaster.
