THIS image shows the first set of homes that will go on sale at Wirral Waters later this year as work progresses on the dockside regeneration scheme.

East Float, a new community will form part of the Northbank neighbourhood at Wirral Waters in Merseyside.

The new CGI - unveiled to the media by House by Urban Splash and Peel L&P following a press tour of the site this morning - shows the distinctive, red Row House homes, a new take on the Victorian terrace which comes in three sizes and layouts.

Row House is surrounded by Town House homes – properties which occupy a prime position overlooking the water – and the Mansion House apartments.

The first homes will be launched at an event in the summer.

No details of house prices has been released at this stage.

The homes are the latest reveal at Wirral Waters where a range of projects are onsite and both the Four Bridges and Northbank neighbourhoods are described as progressing at pace.

Richard Mawdsley, director of development for Peel L&P's Wirral Waters, told the Globe this morning: "Working in this joint venture with House by Urban Splash we will transform East Float into a contemporary waterside community for anyone looking to make Wirral Waters their home.

"Together with the new public realm, that includes new pocket parks and dockside walkways, these innovative new homes from Urban Splash will help create a new exciting, diverse and healthy community.”

"All the hard work behind the scenes is starting to pay off; testament to that is the development work underway which you can see on the East Float site.

"For us and our partners it's all about keeping that momentum going. We have to keep that snowball rolling.

"It's all about partnership with the public sector, working closely, for example, with the council, Homes England and our private sector partners, like Urban Splash.

"Work has continued during the pandemic, obviously making sure sure we are socially-distanced, but we have carried on."

Peel L&P is delivering the East Float community within the Northbank neighbourhood in a 50/50 joint venture with House by Urban Splash to create what it called "a vibrant new waterside offering".

Wirral-based Simon Humphreys of House by Urban Splash added: "We are delighted to be able to share our vision in this brand-new CGI.

"We're bringing Town Houses, apartments and the bold and innovative new housing typology in Row House – and we’re excited to premiere it in Merseyside.

"Urban Splash was founded in Merseyside, creating hundreds of thousands of sq ft of workspace as well as city centre apartments in Liverpool; 28 years on we're immensely proud to be back in the region and bringing a stunning new development to the area.

"We've been talking for about four years about this site and whether to collaborate, and have been on site since December.

"We're confident that it's working well, the homes will arrive in the summer and people will be moved in next spring."

Like the House by Urban Splash Town House and Mansion House homes, Row House has been designed by Liverpool-based architects shedkm.

Buyers will have a wide range of options to make their home their own - including the option of a rooftop terrace.

Row House represents a modern mews house, or 'Urban Cottage', bringing a more compact terrace form to the portfolio at an affordable price range, meaning more people can get on the housing ladder with a home customised to meet their individual lifestyle needs.

"Each home is characterised by a central, oversized, floor-to-ceiling window, which firmly delivers on the House by Urban Splash promise, to deliver design-led, bright open spaces for living.

East Float will feature quiet pedestrianised streets, additional green space for residents with large communal gardens - in addition to private outdoor space, gardens or terraces – and all located in a prime waterside location.
