Property team has ‘rising ambition’ for new development in Nottingham


West Bridgford will be home to a residential development of 49 plush apartments, after a property power team from Nottingham invested in a piece of land just south of the city.

Property entrepreneur, Arran Bailey, Rob Cassidy of New Century Windows, and Nigel Rhodes of DL Rhodes & Son, have invested in the piece of land at Bridgford Point, after the team worked together on a similar development at West Bridgford’s award-winning Christonian Court development.

The Christonian Court development will act as a prototype for this subsequent development, after builders DL Rhodes & Son landed a gong for it at the 2015 LABC Awards.

Arran Bailey, director at ALB Investments Ltd, said: “I have had my eye on the piece of available land behind the city ground for some time now, and it seemed like a natural progression to offer the opportunity to DL Rhodes & Son, the builders who worked on Christonian Court, and to New Century Windows who also worked on the project. “

The trio have now gone in for planning permission to create 49 one and two bedroom apartments all designed to a high specification, and the development will be headed up by Simon Birch at CBP Architects, after his great work at Christonian Court.

Arran continued: “West Bridgford is such a strong rental area and we had people literally biting our hands off for the last batch that we developed there.  We are unsure if we will provide the development for sale or let as it stands, but we are open to both sets of enquiries.

Nigel Rhodes, director at DL Rhodes said: “When I received the call from Arran I had no hesitation on investing into this project, we are hoping to build a similar scheme that won the award around the corner, which will further enhance West Bridgford”

Rob Cassidy, managing director at New Century Windows said: “When Arran invited us to be a part of the investment team for this project in West Bridgford, we were absolutely delighted as it is a fantastic opportunity.

“We have worked with Arran and ALB Investments on several projects in the past, installing windows and doors, and he was impressed with how we presented ourselves as well as our excellent work. We now have the chance to work on a project from the ground up and we are very excited for work to begin.”
