Bringing a distinct wow factor to the East Midlands is this breath-taking £35m build-to-rent development.

We’ll go further, we’re predicting Derby to be one of the Midlands burgeoning hotspots to live and work and if this #BuiltByGMI resi scheme is anything to go by, we envisage major growth here.

If it’s modern city living that you’re after, then this building ticks all the boxes with the many shops and restaurants just a stone’s throw away.

Towering above the Derbyshire skyline, the development is part of a wider £200m regeneration of Derby City Centre and will feature 259 apartments in a mix of one and two-bedroom units on behalf of St James Securities.

Sustainable in design, 98% of the building materials from the previously occupied church and shops will be recycled and reused in the new development, underlining GMI CEO Lee Powell’s green vision.

With excellent transport links to the idyllic Peak District as well as the major cities of Birmingham and Manchester, these apartments are sure to be snapped up quickly.

A state-of-the-art public square has also been incorporated into the design, making this project a real focal point for the community.

GMI are certainly making their mark in the Midlands, with this project seeing us surpass more than £100m worth of contracts in the space of just a few months in 2022.

"We’re delighted to see construction work start on schedule as we move to the next stage of this landmark regeneration scheme for the City of Derby."

“Over the past five years, we have been real trailblazers, prepared to take on a site that has been challenged for many years and put together a scheme which will breathe new life into the area."

“Springwell Square will open up land to the south and bring it back into use. It will be a place where people can meet and relax in an informal space, and it will improve the vibrancy and attraction of the city centre."
