A new £1.75m development on Bath Street is making town centre living more affordable for Huddersfield residents. Yorkshire Housing unveiled 16 two bedroom apartments at Roseda House which are available to let at 20 per cent below standard market rent.
Targeted at working people on low or average incomes, the new apartments offer high-quality modern living in a convenient location.
The development is only five minutes walk from Huddersfield train station and the town centre.
The visually-striking glass fronted apartments were built by Huddersfield builders H, B & E Limited.
Kirklees Council worked with the H B & E Ltd to consider uses for the site, and made Yorkshire Housing aware of the opportunity to develop new affordable homes to address housing needs in Huddersfield.
Yorkshire Housing new business and development director Ged Walsh said:
“The apartments are built to a high specification but are available to rent at an affordable price.
“The location means they are ideal for people who work in the centre of Huddersfield or commute to other areas due to the close proximity of transport links.”
The new homes were part-funded by a £336,000 Homes and Communities Agency grant.
Director of Huddersfield builders & developers Roseda Properties Ltd & sister company HB&E Ltd Sean Clay said:
“Roseda House apartments are an excellent example of what can be achieved when a reputable local builder is given the opportunity to interact with the local council and one of the largest housing associations in the North of England.
“Fraser Neasham of Yorkshire Housing and the Strategic Housing department of Kirklees Council worked very hard to make this development work, it was a particularly challenging town centre site.
“We are very proud of what has been created and we are looking forward to developing other similar projects.
“Under the guidance of Gary Brookfield of Nicol Thomas Employers Agent we now have in Huddersfield town centre a fully functional modern block of 16 apartments which is just a stones throw from the train station and town centre. Thank you to all involved.”
