New-builds go on the mar­ket

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Large-scale de­vel­op­ment has scat­tered cranes across Maid­stone, with hun­dreds of new homes due in the com­ing years.

Reser­va­tions for some of the 502 homes at Spring­field Park off Royal En­gi­neers’ Road will be ac­cepted from to­mor­row (Fri­day), with prices start­ing at £199,995 for a one bed­room apart­ment and £331,000 for a three-bed flat. Once com­plete, the We­ston Homes scheme will in­clude a 17-storey tower block which will be­come Maid­stone’s tallest build­ing.

Next door is the Spring­field Mill de­vel­op­ment. The old pa­per-mak­ing plant is set to be de­mol­ished and re­placed with 295 homes.

Else­where in the town cen­tre, passers-by can see flats tak- ing shape at Wren’s Cross, the for­mer home of Kent Po­lice on Up­per Stone Street.

A new five storey build­ing will hold 66 flats, while an­other six will be held in a third block. Homes there are not ex­pected to be­come avail­able at Wren’s Cross un­til 2019.
