One of the largest developments in St Helens, the building is a focal point on entry to the city centre and was complimented by the local planning authority for its contemporary appearance and high quality materials.
Foundry Wharf comprises 130 extra care homes for the over 55s, 109 one-bedroom and 21 two-bedroom apartments built to a high specification. All the apartments have full or Juliet balconies.
The building also includes communal facilities including a guest suite, hairdressers and a bistro which are open to the public within a large foyer which opens out onto extensive secure, landscaped grounds overlooking the St Helens Canal.
The designs included considerations from a sun path analysis as good, natural light is important to health and wellbeing. The Northern and Western part of the site provides private gated gardens including informal seating areas. The perimeter boundary treatment creates a safe and accessible environment for its residents.
Occupation at Foundry Wharf started March 2021.
