First release sell out at Mapmakers launch
The launch event offered a variety of 2 bedroom apartments and 2 & 3 bedroom houses. Jon McDiarmid, sales and marketing director said: “We anticipated that interest would be high for these superb homes, but the demand for information on the opening day of sales was overwhelming. “This is an exciting project for Kier Living, we are creating a new community in Southampton and are delighted that so many people seem equally excited at the prospect of living here.” He added that homes at Mapmakers appeal to a variety of buyers from professionals and families to investors and downsizers alike. Buyers so far have included both doctors and nurses, as the development is within walking distance of the city’s two hospitals. There has also been interest from industrial professionals and university students. Mapmakers is named in celebration of the site’s heritage as the former headquarters of the Ordnance Survey and comprises 66 high quality houses and apartments, two on site retail units and a new green space called Ordnance Park. Mapmakers is highly accessible located just three miles from Southampton City Centre and five minutes from the M27. A second release of Mapmakers new homes are now available with 2 bedroom apartments from £170,000 and 2 & 3 bedroom houses from £225,000. For more information speak to Connells on 023 8124 4349.
