Affordable housing units in St David’s sold out
Affordable housing units which became available last year in St David’s have sold out, according to a Public Works spokesman.
And work on replacements for Victoria and Albert Rows, in Sandys, despite an initial refusal by the Development Applications Board (DAB) remains on schedule.
The $34 million housing project was announced in 2010 with an SDO approved that September, but the DAB refused the application last November after expressing concerns about a lack of outdoor living space and communal spaces. Wedco subsequently filed an appeal for the decision.
Regarding the development, the Public Works spokesman said: “This project remains on schedule and announcements will be forthcoming at the appropriate time.”
He also said that all of the units at the Harbour View Village, in St David’s, have been sold less than a year after the first completed units were officially opened last March.
The news came after this newspaper reported that the first 24 units built at the Grand Atlantic development in Warwick are currently unsold, but 18 clients are currently working on financing terms.
