The final few roof tiles have been laid at a Lovell built £9.1 million retirement living development Lapwing Apartments, marking the completion of the external works at the scheme in Orton Brimbles, Peterborough.
The 54-apartment complex under construction by Lovell is set to provide community living for the over-55s. With stylish one- and two-bedroom apartments, along with fantastic communal facilities including a restaurant, library and community lounge, Lapwing Apartments will build on the success of Cross Keys Homes’ award-winning Kingfisher Court in providing independent living with flexible support provision.
Mary Bryce, care business development manager, who helped to lay some of the final tiles, says: “The development has now reached that really exciting stage where we can concentrate on the interior of the building, to bring it to life. With fantastic apartments and facilities that include a restaurant, orangery, and meeting rooms that will be open to local people and groups, Lapwing Apartments will become a focal point of the neighbourhood.”
Chris Cooper, project manager for Lapwing Apartments developer Lovell, comments: “Completing the roof is a huge milestone on this build and a great achievement for all involved. This is a fantastic building which will be an important asset to the local community and the city. We are now looking forward to working with Cross Keys Homes to fit out the apartments and communal spaces to the highest standards, to provide attractive and modern homes for the lucky residents.”
