The second phase of work to transform a former hospital site in Welwyn Garden City into a new residential community is now underway.
Bellway North London completed the first stage of construction at its QEII development, located on the former Queen Elizabeth II Hospital site, next to the brand new hospital building, earlier this year.
The leading local housebuilder was granted planning permission to build a further 41 apartments on the site of the former MRI centre and day nursery building in March.
Access to the new homes will be provided off Howlands Lane and Queens Avenue.
With work on site now underway, Bellway hopes to release the first plots for sale this autumn.
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.
“The two, three and four-bedroom houses and apartments within the first phase of the development have all been sold and we are expecting similar levels of interest in the one and two-bedroom apartments which will be available within phase two.”
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.”
