Calico Homes have shared CGI footage of inside their new flagship care facility Dovestone Gardens. The £16 million development which is being funded by Homes England will provide 93 apartments predominantly for people over 55 with extra support needs.
The development on Briercliffe Road has already transformed derelict land at Burnley General Hospital and now well underway at the site.
The 4-storey building has 71 x 2 bed apartments and 22 x 1 bed apartments. Dovestone Gardens will have 50 car parking spaces with a mixture of resident and short stay visitor parking. In early 2024, the individual selection process for apartments will start and be a phased process. More details will be shared on the selection process in coming months.
The images show an insight into the facilities that will be available onsite including a bistro open to the public. The bistro will also be a community facility for local community groups to meet and undertake activities.
Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction are leading the construction work on behalf of Calico Homes supported by Identity Consult, the project manager and quantity surveyor for the development. The CGI footage has been developed by freelance 3D artist Sam Calvert and the interior design work of Dovestone Gardens has been carried out by Studio Henderson who have worked on development projects across the North West. Dovestone Gardens has been designed by architects, Brock Carmichael.
Dovestone Gardens is set to be complete late in 2024. Customers and local residents have the chance to have their say on the development with monthly consultations where they can register an interest in an apartment and give their feedback.
