Nikal prepares Altrincham's next phase
Developer Nikal has submitted a reserved matters planning application for the second phase of its £70m Altrincham town centre scheme.
Main contractor Eric Wright Construction started preliminary work on the Altair mixed use development last year, with demolition and enabling works to allow for the construction of phase one – a building with 59 apartments and ground floor retail space.
Phase two includes the construction of four more blocks of flats in the Cheshire town, as well as versatile retail and office space. The apartments will be delivered by Nikal’s homebuilding arm, Hillcrest Homes.
A new central boulevard will link the new Quarter to the new Transport Interchange.
Outline planning consent for the entire scheme was granted in 2014 with a planning decision on phase two expected in April 2017.
Nikal managing director Nick Payne aid: “We’re excited to be sharing our vision for Altair as a dynamic and thriving new Quarter in modern Altrincham. Phase two reveals how Altair will complement the town’s existing offering and help attract new residents, workers, businesses, shoppers and visitors from near and far.”
