New image shows how Derby's Nightingale Quarter will look ahead of sale launch date

A new CGI image has been released by property developers detailing the view of the cycle path towards the iconic Pepper Pot structure

With the date just a few days away for when potential buyers can get to see the final site plans and specifications for the historic site, the developers behind the scheme have produced the image to show what it will look like once complete.

The image of the cycle path, Pepper Pot South building and two- and three-bedroom homes, is just one of a handful which have so far been released by Wavensmere Homes.

Just a year after purchasing the land, and with them poised to break ground to start work on the homes, the developers have already had almost two thousand enquiries from people wanting to purchase them.

Donna Smith, Sales Director of Wavensmere Homes said:

“We have just been inundated with enquiries since they were opened for the homes in the summer and our estate agent haart have been fielding calls daily for them.

“I think because it is a new city centre development which is quite a rarity nowadays, and people having such an affinity with the site and the Pepper Pot structures, this has made it a magnet for buyers of all ages to wanting to live there.”

haart Divisional Sales Director Claire Drewett added they were currently preparing for an appointment-only viewing of the plans at their new city centre office, where computer generated visuals, completion timescales and site plans would be exclusively revealed.

“Due to it being such a high-interest site we have had to make sure we have increased the number of staff within our office and made it as fair as possible with having appointments only for the properties. We know it is going to be a very busy few days for us all and this is incredibly exciting for Derby as we draw closer to seeing the visuals turn into a reality,” she said.

Potential buyers who have signed up will be sent an email this week, with an exclusive buying day at a city centre location will be announced later this month.

The 18-acre site will be a ‘green oasis’ for residents, including cycle routes, an open air gym and fitness area, children’s play areas and planting throughout the site.

The infirmary’s iconic pepper pot buildings will be retained for community use, with residents having access to numerous facilities including a café, gym, exhibition space and meeting rooms.
