The second phase of work to turn a former hospital in Welwyn Garden City into a new residential community has now got under way.
Bellway North London has completed the first stage of construction at its QEII development, located on the old Queen Elizabeth II Hospital site, next to the brand new hospital building.
The housebuilder was given planning permission to build a further 41 apartments on the site of the former MRI centre and day nursery building in March.
Greg Allsop, Head of Sales and Marketing for Bellway North London, said: “We are proud to be involved in the regeneration of this landmark site. Bellway at QEII is a high quality development of homes characterised by large, open spaces, providing much-needed new homes in Welwyn Garden City.”
He added: “The apartments will enjoy a peaceful location in a tree-lined setting on the edge of woodland, yet offer easy access to shops, schools and transport links. Work is now progressing in preparation for the launch of these new homes in the autumn.”
Bellway hopes to release the first plots for sale this autumn.
