First phase of building work starting this Spring on customised homes in Sneinton Market

Mon 14th Jan 2019

by CQ

Around 40 new homes will be coming to Sneinton Market very soon as Fruit Market begins the first phase in the project. Home buyers will soon be able to live in the hearts of 'the place to be' and be a part of a thriving community.

Life Announcements

“Since we started working on the Fruit Market concept we’ve seen the refurbished Sneinton Market transform into the hub of independent businesses the city has always hoped it would be. This buzz of new innovative and lifestyle-led business activity has changed public perceptions of the area and created an exciting and sought after place to visit and live. The submission of the reserved matters for phase one is a really important milestone for the phase one group. We hope to receive approval in the next few months with construction work on the new homes expected to begin in the spring.”

Alec Hamlin, development manager at Blueprint, who is behind the project

“I chose The Fruit Market because the houses looked so cool, offered good value for money and are in a great location - I’m extremely excited to be living so close to the Lace Market. Plus, the ability to adapt the design to suit my needs really appealed to me. The process so far has been a lot of fun, co-ordination on the project has been great and the group gets on well.”
