Work has started to transform the former Withington Hospital site on Cavendish Road in West Didsbury into a residential development of 74 new homes and apartments.
Leading housebuilder Bellway Homes will develop the 4.74 acre site with a mix of three- and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes and two-bedroom apartments.
Sales director at Bellway Homes, Louise Chamberlain, said: “We’re delighted to have acquired this plot of land and are confident that the development will prove popular with families, first-time buyers, young professionals and key workers looking for a high quality, low maintenance home in this highly desirable suburb with its great social scene and superb commuter links.
“With its excellent location in the heart of West Didsbury, we know that Eclipse will prove popular with those looking for their forever home as well as first-time buyers.
“Bellway is especially keen to assist as many first purchasers as possible onto the housing ladder in such a key location by working in conjunction with the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.”
