NEW residential housing development Pelham Waterside has been shortlisted for ‘Best Urban Development Outside London’ at the Inside Housing Development Awards 2021.
The 73-home scheme, which is located near the banks of Nottingham’s River Trent within the Waterside Regeneration Zone, has been designed by CPMG Architects to embrace sustainability, community and nature, bringing new residents to the riverside location.
Owned by Pelham Homes, the site is the largest residential development for the home builders in more than a decade and this month has been shortlisted alongside some of the UK’s top new-build schemes – with more than 300 entrants.
Allan Fisher, director at Pelham Homes said: “This is an incredible recognition for the Pelham Waterside team on a national stage. The interest in the development since its launch has been fantastic and over 80% of the homes in phase one have already been sold or reserved, with completion expected by summer 2021. Phase two has planning agreed bringing a further 12 houses and 27 apartments, starting on site later this year.
“Our ethos at Pelham Homes is ‘building profit for purpose’ and our developments are dedicated to generating profits through building new homes, which are gift-aided back to Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) to help provide affordable homes and additional social value to the wider community. As the first scheme of this size in over 10 years, we are proud of the team’s hard work in making it such an early success.”
The development has seen the regeneration of a brownfield site and has sustainability integrated into the design, incorporating thermally-efficient building fabric and the use of low-energy fittings throughout. A combination of good quality brickwork and timber cladding provide a natural feel to the buildings, which also feature generously sized windows and Juliet balconies to allow good levels of natural daylight and ventilation throughout.
Steve Milan, associate and lead for the scheme at CPMG, said: “We’re delighted that Pelham Waterside has been shortlisted for a national award. Working with Pelham Homes we have designed an environment reflecting the importance of personal wellbeing, both inside the homes and through interaction with outdoor spaces, so it’s fantastic to have been recognised for our hard work.”
Pelham Waterside is a contemporary development, which provides an urban lifestyle close to the city centre, while offering wellbeing benefits of waterside living for individuals, couples and families. The project team for phase two of Pelham Waterside is Couch Perry Wilkes, mechanical and electrical consultants and Curtins, structural engineers.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony event on Thursday 4 November 2021 at London’s Intercontinental Hotel. For more information about CPMG Architects, please visit: www.cpmg-architects.com.
