Nine Investments has celebrated the unveiling of a crane at its newest building project Kings Crescent, off Duffield Road.
The crescent, a sweeping curved Georgian inspired development, will have nearly 50 dwellings; a mix of one and two-bedroom luxury apartments, including penthouse suites and three spacious town houses.
As the foundations are now complete, the crane has been brought in with its first task the erection of a steel frame which will form the skeleton of the structure.
Marketing Derby Managing Director John Forkin was invited to cut the ribbon at a ceremony celebrating the cranes arrival onto the city's skyline. He said "This is a fantastic location adjacent to the beautiful Darley Park, with your local high street being 'Britain's best' as Great British High Street winner. It's great to see two Bondholders working together to bring quality living to Derby"
Work on the building of Kings Crescent will start in the next few weeks, with completion set for April 2019.
Carl Bridge, Director of Birchover Sales and Lettings, which is the sole marketing agent for Kings Crescent, said: "In our view, it’s the most breathtaking new residential building in Derby for decades. The stunning crescent is perfectly situated for The Cathedral Quarter and city centre and will be a great addition to the Derby skyline.
“We sold four apartments on the day the properties went live. There has been tremendous interest from local buyers for the town houses and the studio, one and two bedroom apartments."
