Holden Mill, the last mill to be built in Bolton, is now in the early stages of a major renovation project at the hands of the country's leading listed building developer and renovation specialist. PJ Livesey Group is preparing to re-launch the 1926 mill, now known as The Cottonworks, at the start of the New Year as an elegant development of 284 luxury apartments.
The Grade II listed building was designed and built for Sir John Holden by Bradshaw, Gas and Hope and has retained a number of distinctive architectural features which PJ Livesey expect will appeal to the more discerning homebuyer. An on-site sales office will open in January 2007 and the company has made two new sales appointments to cope with the anticipated high level of enquiries once the selection of one, two and three-bedroom properties are formerly launched.
Bolton is an area that has increased in popularity over the last decade, with regeneration funding flowing generously into the area and modes of transport between the town and nearby Manchester city centre improving. Transport links are becoming more frequent to accommodate demand from the growing number of professionals who have made this a residential hotspot for City Centre commuters.
PJ Livesey's sales manager, Colette Gannon, believes that Bolton will continue to prosper in 2007 and advises those wishing to buy at The Cottonworks to register their interest at the earliest opportunity: "Bolton is an area that has begun to realise its full potential as a residential address in recent years and canny investors have moved quickly. Its proximity to the City Centre is a major attraction, so any development that stands out is going to be a success - and that's where we come in.
"Our portfolio is full of developments which consist of some of the UK's finest heritage buildings which have been both lovingly and painstakingly restored to retain their historic value and to maximise and renew their potential. We wouldn't have set out to develop The
Cottonworks if we didn't think there was scope in both the location and the original building to weave some magic into our development proposals and create a fashionable new landmark address for the area."
PJ Livesey plans to launch a selection of show apartments later in the New Year to demonstrate the wide variety of styles planned for this development. However, initial interest has proved so strong that the developer is already registering early enquiries from those who want the pick of the plots once these apartments are released for sale.
