Harworth Group has exchanged contracts on land sales totalling 13.87 net developable acres, with two regional housebuilders, for the next phase of residential development at its flagship Waverley site in Rotherham.
Harworth said the combined price, in excess of £11m, reflected an increasing average price per acre at Waverley as it continues to mature as a leading brownfield development.
Harworth said: 'Avant Homes will build 220 three and four bedroom family homes on 12.81 net acres of land it has purchased.
'This deal follows its acquisition in February 2017 of 4.7 net acres where the housebuilder is already constructing 61 three and four bedroom homes, reflecting the strong demand for this type of product at the development.' Harworth said contracts had also been exchanged with Sky House Company (Waverley) Limited, for 1.06 net acres of land.
Harworth said: 'Sky House, a fast-growing 'compact' urban housebuilder based in Sheffield, will be developing Waverley's first starter homes aimed at first time buyers, comprising 40 two-bedroom units and four, four-bedroom family homes.
'It will be employing its unique Sky-House concept - a re-imagining of Victorian 'back-to-back' terraced homes for modern day living.'
