Once the site of a prominent pharmaceutical factory, The White Building remains a cherished part of Basingstoke’s wartime heritage. The site is now being offered a new lease of life by housebuilder Barratt Homes and Vivid Homes as part of the successful Chapel Gate development. The building is being lovingly restored to offer an exclusive collection of one and two bedroom apartments ideally designed to meet the needs of today’s first time buyer. With the homes at The White Building available to purchase using schemes including Help to Buy and shared ownership, first time buyers will also benefit from additional features that will help to reduce upfront costs, including a high-quality finish in each home, which includes contemporary fitted kitchens and pre-installed flooring. Chapel Gate is conveniently located just a five-minute walk from Basingstoke railway station, which offers a speedy commute into Waterloo and Reading, alongside access key road links including the M3.
This award will be looking to recognise a development that has not yet been built/completed but offers great potential to first time buyers.
