E G Carter & Co Ltd, County to County and Gloucestershire City Council got their hands dirty and put their mark on The Post House by laying some of the roof slates on the refurbished building.
The E G Carter & Co Ltd team were joined by Gloucestershire City Councils Councillors, Paul James and Lise Noakes along with Managing Director Thomas Waldron from County to County. The small event saw both Paul, Lise and Site Manager Ian Beevor lay some of the roof slates on the top of the building putting their mark on the new development.
The former sorting office based on Eastern Avenue, Gloucester consists of 48 one and two-bedroom apartments. Built in the 1950’s, the Post House is arranged in an L-shape with two wings either side of the central Art Deco style stairwell and atrium, which is currently being retained to provide a stylish entrance and introduction to the new development.
Thomas Waldron from County to County said “What is exciting is that The Post House is set to create a really vibrant community of young people, all enjoying moving into their first property,” He added that buyers were commenting favourably on the quality of the finish and specification that was offered at The Post House, particularly since the show apartment was unveiled on Saturday 10 November.
Thomas Jones Associate Director at E G Carter & Co Ltd said “E G Carter & Co Ltd are very excited to be working alongside County to County to deliver the 48 apartments. The development will be a great asset for first time buyers and we are looking forward to the result. Restoration to the staircase is underway and we plan to be complete by June 2019”
75% of the apartments are already reserved with 26 out of 34 sold to local first-time buyers.
