St Cuthbert’s Close is a development of Retirement Living apartments in Hexham, Northumberland.
The comprehensive redevelopment of the site has seen the demolition of the previous 1960s bedsit style flats, and two adjacent semi-detached homes, to make way for 38 high specification apartments for older residents.
The building will be accessed from a new entrance for the site on Hencotes – linking the future residents of the building into all the shops, cafes and restaurants available in Hexham town centre, and also allowing easy access for visitors.
The project, designed by architects HMH, has been supported with funding from the Homes England, the government’s housing agency.
Work on St Cuthbert’s Close is being led by Karbon with Tolent as main contractor, supported by consultants Hall and Partners and 3E Consulting Engineers
