Moor Lane, Rowley Regis
Works on site have now commenced for the new 90 Apartment Extra Care Home located at the Junction of Moor Lane and Harvest Road in Rowley Regis.
The 2/3 storey development will contain a mixture of 1 and 2 bedroom properties and also provides lounge and dining for both the residents and the wider community, with the intention of creating a community hub for local people to drop in and use for social interaction, as well as meals or just a cup of tea.
A Hairdressing Salon is also included as part of this development for use by the residents and wider community.
The new building is set back from the road, has a secure boundary of low wall and railings, with tree and shrub planting creating a green outlook. Within the landscape scheme two car parks provide ample on-site parking for residents, staff and visitors.
The building layout has been designed to create an enclosed courtyard garden which will be landscaped for the residents to safely enjoy the benefits of being outdoors.
There is direct access from the communal lounge to an external dining and seating area, circular footpaths with a central shelter/meeting place and opportunities for communal gardening.
The ground floor internal facing flats will open out on to a semi-private patio space.
The project, valued at £15 million pounds, commenced on site in June 2019 and is scheduled to be completed by March 2021.
