Northampton apartment scheme reaches construction milestone

A luxury apartment scheme in Northampton has reached a major construction milestone.

Site E3a Lion Court is a development of 44 one and two bed apartments on the bank of the River Nene at Southbridge.

The seven-storey scheme has now reached its highest point and a social-distanced topping out ceremony has been held by the development partners.

It comprises of a five-storey block with a river view penthouse occupying floors six and seven, and is the first development to be undertaken by Northampton-based developers H&F Enterprise UK Limited.

It is expected to be finished in February 2021 and work is being completed by Deeley Construction on behalf of the developer.

The development was initially scheduled for completion in Autumn of this year however this was pushed back due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Yan (Henry) Qu, Director of H&F Enterprise, said: “To have reached such a major milestone in our flagship project is an exciting moment for us. We’re looking to appeal to a younger market demographic with the apartments and they will be completed to a very high specification and standard.

“The development is in prime position and since work has started on site we have been inundated with enquiries from prospective buyers, from people already living in Northampton and those looking to move into the town.

“The topping out ceremony was a key point in the development, and it was fantastic to bring partners together for the event, including our construction partner Deeley Construction and our multidisciplinary planning and design team.

“This is a truly exciting scheme for Northampton and we’re confident it will bring great benefits to the community.”

Eleanor Deeley, Deputy Managing Director of the Deeley Group, added: “Our team have been working on-site throughout the Covid-19 pandemic on this development and it is fantastic to see it now reach its high point.

“We are an award-winning firm for our work in private residential developments, and this proven experience shines through here.

“This is a premium development in a prime position, delivered to the highest standards, and the interest already from potential buyers shows how highly sought-after property of this type is in Northampton.”
