On Friday 18th August, Andium Homes Ltd acquired the former Limes Residential Home on Green Street from the States.
As reported earlier this year, Andium Homes is refurbishing the building so that in the short term it can be used to accommodate key workers, principally junior doctors, as a means of facilitating the initial phases of the Future Hospital project. In the longer term, Andium Homes plans to redevelop the site for affordable housing.
Andium Homes has engaged with ROK Construction Ltd, a local company, to carry out the necessary refurbishment work, which is now underway and is due to be completed in December.
Carl Mavity, Head of Business Development at Andium Homes, said, "We are delighted that we have been able to assist Health & Social Services and the Future Hospital Project in finding a solution to address the housing needs of the junior doctors, who are vital to our health service; overall it is an excellent demonstration of the positive results that working in partnership can bring. We hope that our acquisition of the site also offers some reassurance to local residents that the site will have a long term future in the provision of affordable homes".
