Turning Low Demand on it's Head
Developers Urban Splash won many plaudits when they published plans for their redesign of the Victorian terrace a couple of years ago. The thinking was to reconfigure small terraced houses so that they would appeal to the loft apartment generation. The development was built in the Langworthy area of Manchester an area, an area previously littered with abandoned homes and all the signs of low housing demand.
Of course plaudits are one thing, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Earlier this week the first batch of houses went up for sale. Demand was such that people queued through the night to be first in line to buy one. Congratulations to Urban Splash. http://shurl.net/Cf
