Julian Officially Opens the First Show Homes on The Granary

June 10, 2016

Last week Julian visited The Granary development on Water Lane, previously known as the Grain Stores site, for the second time to see how the housebuilding was progressing.

Julian cut the ribbon on two new fully furnished show homes in front of an audience of suppliers, sub-contractors, ward councillors and local organisations.

Commenting Julian said, “It was a pleasure to have been invited by Redrow to officially open The Granary and to look around the first completed homes on site. I was very impressed by the style and finish of the properties, and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

“It is crucial that brownfield sites like this one are brought forward, and it is fantastic to see the area being developed for housing at last after sitting dormant for so long.”

The Water Lane site will eventually feature 215 new homes – from one-bedroom apartments to three and four-bedroom family homes – on land that was formerly part of an RAF base used for fighter and bomber command activities during World War Two. The old aircraft hangers were later used for the storage of grain from surrounding agricultural land and came to be known as York Grain Stores. The site lay vacant from 2006 until it was acquired for housing by Redrow in 2015.
