Go ahead for 98 MMC homes at Port Loop
House by Urban Splash has been given the green light to deliver 98 homes in the next phase of development at Port Loop; Birmingham’s new island community.
All 98 properties will be built off-site in House by Urban Splash’s modular housing factory using modern methods of construction (MMC) before being craned into place at Port Loop.
Just over half of these homes will be a new house type for Port Loop: Row House. Representing a modern mews house, or ‘Urban Cottage’, Row House brings a more compact terrace form to Port Loop’s portfolio at an affordable price range; meaning more people can get on the housing ladder with a home customised to meet their individual lifestyle needs. Each home is characterised by a central, oversized, floor-to-ceiling window, which firmly delivers on the House by Urban Splash promise, to deliver design-led, bright open spaces for living.
The remaining properties will be the larger, two and three storey Town Houses which have proven incredibly popular to date and, like Row House, allow customers to influence the design of their new home.
Adam Willetts, Project Director for Port Loop, said: “We’re very excited to move forward with this next phase at Port Loop and introduce Row House to the neighbourhood. The past year has made a lot of people rethink what they look for in a new home, with green space and flexible living top of many people’s wish lists; both of which are key characteristics of life at Port Loop.”
