Crest Nicholson starts work on the latest homes at Alconbury Weald

21/05/2019

Work is underway for a new range of homes at Alconbury Weald, as the exciting new community continues to grow.

Built by national housebuilder Crest Nicholson, the 192 properties will be set in a prime location in the first phase of the development alongside the tree-lined boulevard, with many of them facing the newly created cricket pitch.

The homes include one and two-bedroom apartments, two, three and four-bedroom detached, semi-detached and mews-style townhouses.
Crest Nicholson becomes the fifth housebuilder at Alconbury Weald, a new community in Huntingdon. The company has worked closely with Urban&Civic, the master developer of Alconbury Weald responsible for the design of the new community.

Over the next 15 years the site will be developed in key phases, each of which will provide further facilities and benefits as the community takes shape.
David Hnyda, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Chiltern, said:
“It’s fantastic to start work on site and to move forward with this significant new collection of homes. We are confident they will be a high-quality addition to the growing community at Alconbury Weald, adding to its impressive offering. We anticipate that the first homes will be available to view in Autumn 2019.”

Tim Leathes, Development Director at Urban&Civic, added:
“It’s good to see Crest Nicholson get underway with this new range of homes. Alconbury Weald is rapidly growing, and as master developer, it is our responsibility to ensure it grows in line with the aspirational vision we have set out. As more homes are built, we are making sure that a range of housebuilders design and build homes in a variety of sizes, types and prices, with over 70 different options to choose from.

“Further milestones are just around the corner, including the official opening of the cricket pitch and the completion of the historic Watch Office.”

Facilities already up and running at Alconbury Weald include the popular Ermine Street Church Academy primary school, a café and gym, a community park and extensive neighbourhood play areas. To date, the Alconbury Weald Enterprise Campus has delivered 1 million sq ft of employment space with companies, such MMUK, IKO, Enval, and John Adams Leisure among its occupiers. Recently, plans have been submitted for the construction of the County Council’s new headquarters building at Alconbury Weald.
