A new mixed-use development featuring 28 affordable homes in the centre of Penrith will officially open next Tuesday.
Located on Kilgour Street, the £3m Penrith New Squares project, developed by Sainsbury's and constructed by Thomas Armstrong, features a selection of two-bedroom apartments, two- and three-bedroom houses.
The affordable homes project, which is sure to appeal to a wide range of people seeking to find a property in this Cumbrian market town, has been part funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
In addition to new home, the development also consists of 22 retail units, including a major Sainsbury's supermarket.
Eventually there will also be 161 new homes, including social housing managed by Riverside.
"It's gone quite well and is in the final throes," Ralph Kennerley of Thomas Armstrong Construction told the press. "The project started 50 weeks ago and now it opens on Tuesday."
He added: "I think everybody that has seen the new houses likes them because they're all different."
