Girdwood, Antrim Road & North Queen Street Developments
There is no doubt 2016 was an extremely busy year for the Association.
February 2016 saw the commencement of a phased handover of 75 new build homes at our Girdwood Development, North Belfast. The Association initially received handover of 9 no. new build homes at St James Mews, with the remaining 66 no. new build homes handed over in mid-May 2016.
In late May 2016, the Association also acquired handover of 3 no. 4 bedroom new build homes on the Antrim Road, Belfast.
Finally, in November 2016, the Association acquired handover of 26 new build homes at North Queen Street, Belfast.
In total, 104 new build homes were acquired by the Association from the three new build developments at Girdwood (St James Mews, Kinnaird Street, Kinnaird Terrace and Kinnaird Avenue) Antrim Road and North Queen Street Belfast.
The breakdown of all the homes acquired by NHA are as follows:
10 x One Bed Apartments
35 x Two Bed Homes
24 x Two Bed Apartments
32 x Three Bed Homes
3 x Four Bed Homes
These new affordable homes have provided much needed accommodation for single people and families who, in some cases have been awaiting accommodation for several years and were in severe housing need.
