Regeneration work on a large part of Doncaster town centre is continuing well, with Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones visiting new housing development ‘The Gables’ to see progress first hand.
Doncaster Council and its development partner Muse Developments have overseen significant changes to the landscape of the town, with the transformation of the £300million Civic and Cultural Quarter (CCQ) forging ahead. Several developments are already complete as part of the project, including new Civic offices, Cast – a state of the art performance venue, and widespread improvements to public spaces in the Waterdale area.
Now, a key part of the next stage of improvements, ‘The Gables’, has been visited by Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones as building work continues. The site, a new housing development in Doncaster’s town centre, comprises 54 new high-quality properties including one, two and three bedroomed homes designed with a range of buyers in mind. The first phase of homes are now complete with several properties already sold and strong interest from potential buyers.
Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones was delighted by the high quality of the homes on display. She said: ‘We need more housing in Doncaster and The Gables development will provide excellent town-centre accommodation for local residents, adding to the superb work being carried out to regenerate the wider area.
‘The quality of the existing Waterdale developments, including the new civic offices and Cast, speak for themselves. It is great to visit The Gables and discover that this excellent standard has been maintained. The calibre of the homes here will help to attract a wide array of residents and will play a key part in the vibrant future of this area.’
The Gables features a selection of ecologically-designed homes built in an area of Doncaster which is set to benefit from continued regeneration in the coming years. The superb standard of work and high quality finish evidenced by completed CCQ developments are matched by the exceptional homes in The Gables.
Adds Dan Needham, Regional Development Director at MUSE: ‘It is good to have moments like this to reflect on what our partnership with Doncaster Council has achieved and today’s tour was a great opportunity to showcase the quality and variety of the homes here which have really struck a chord with a range of buyers in Doncaster. The last year has marked a significant milestone for the cultural and civic quarter in the town centre with the opening of Cast and the launch of The Gables, and has successfully maintained the momentum of the CQQ, building on the delivery of Phase One. The Waterdale area of Doncaster has been transformed into a thriving new neighbourhood and, having planted the seeds, we look forward to seeing a new community here flourish.’
Located close to the Waterdale development, and within walking distance of the railway station and town centre, The Gables offers an ideal location for everyone from first-time buyers and young professionals to those who simply wish to benefit from the convenience of town centre living in a new build home.
