First time buyer apartments finished at Clifton Moor - December 2015

First phase of apartments finished

We have recently completed the development of 70 apartments at Clifton Moor on behalf of the clients of the Helmsley Group.

The focus of the project has been to create high quality, affordable first-time buyers properties which are so in demand in the city of York. Being able to develop the apartments within old disused office space has added further strength to the project and won great support from local MPs. There are many offices like this on Clifton Moor that are standing empty and it would be great to see more of them being converted into housing when there is such demand.

The apartments have been finished to a high standard with large aluminium double glazed windows, high ceilings and larger than average rooms. We have installed gloss kitchen units and integrated appliances. The bathrooms feature high quality sanitary ware and each apartment has oak veneer internal doors and low energy LED lighting.

We are currently in a second phase of conversion known as Halo 4 and Halo 7.

John Reeves from the Helmsley Group said:

“It’s great to have the development completed and I’m delighted with the results that GEM Construction has delivered. It’s important to still achieve a high quality of finish for the first time buyers’ market and GEM have delivered the project on time with a superior finish and most importantly, on budget.”
