A new homes development designed by Brewster Bye has been named one of Yorkshire’s best regeneration projects at this year’s prestigious Yorkshire Residential Property Awards.
The Gables in Doncaster was developed by Muse and consists of 97, one, two and three bedroom homes. The scheme also had an additional role within Doncaster’s neighbouring Cultural and Civic Quarter Regeneration scheme, which is playing an important part in the rejuvenation of the city centre.
The Gables was one of three finalists in the Best Regeneration Project for Housing category, which was ultimately won by The Fruit Market in Hull – a development that has seen the historic market transformed into a new urban village.
TV presenter Gethin Jones hosted this year’s awards, which are organised by Variety, the Children’s Charity, and held at Bowcliffe Hall in Bramham. The event raises funds to help sick, disabled and disadvantaged children, as well as rewarding exceptional property professionals and projects.
Nathan Wilkinson, a director at Brewster Bye, said: “The Gables is a high quality, contemporary and sustainably designed housing scheme, in a sought-after city centre location. The houses provide an alternative to city apartments, each with light and airy, open plan accommodation and private external space, so they were very popular with homebuyers.
“The development has also transformed a key brownfield site and is now an integral part of the Cultural and Civic Quarter regeneration project, as well as becoming a bridge between the city’s public buildings and its existing residential areas.
“We’re delighted The Gables made it to the finals of these awards, which attracted some exceptional competition.”
