Countesswells affordable homes handed over

Hillcrest Housing Association have taken possession of 67 affordable homes at Countesswells, Aberdeen, in the latest phase of development at the north east New Town.

Delivered by Stewart Milne the handover marks completion of the first of three phases which will ultimately deliver 137 affordable homes for the city with construction of the second phase following on in April and the third from July.

Stewart Milne Homes North land director, Richard Fawcus said: “Our design principles have delivered a terrific place to live and we are now pleased to hand them over to Hillcrest and welcome more residents to this award-winning, new community.

“At Countesswells, we’re creating something really special, where traditional community values and features such as the playpark, orchard and woodland paths meet innovative design, connectivity and sustainability.

“The new town is perfectly placed for country living, close to the city and, as the community grows, so too will the services and amenities, including public transport, shops and schools.”

Both subsequent phases should complete by early 2021.

Guessing the soft landscaping budget got "value engineered" on that first image
