A little while ago we welcomed the new residents to Valentines Place. And now that we’ve finished work on both Millfleet Court and Valentine Place we’ve started on the third phase of the redevelopment.
Each phase of the work has so far taken around a year to complete, so if all goes according to plan, by this time next year we’ll be telling those tenants returning how we’re planning to welcome them back!
Exciting news has been announced for Hillington Square as the next block name has been revealed… It will be called Valentine Place!
To choose the new names, Freebridge received information from nearly 300 people living or working in the area at a series of consultations in 2013. Interviewees gave their views about Hillington Square and what it means to them. The research showed that the community did not want to see a new name for the estate, but there was strong support for a more individual approach for homes by promoting the identities of the blocks.
Colin Davison, Director of Property at Freebridge said: “When we told the community that the name Millfleet Court had been chosen for Phase One at Hillington Square, we were delighted with the way it was welcomed by everyone, including the residents moving into the refurbished homes.
“By listening and responding to what local people told us, we are confident that the new name for Phase Two, Valentine Place will be equally well received into the heart of the community.”
Other names that will be used as part of the £30-million regeneration in Hillington Square are Coronation Walk, Eldridge Way and Gurney Road. Details of their use will be shared further into the regeneration project.
