Mandale pick up the Highly Commended award for our regeneration of Martin’s Mill at the Halifax Civic Trust Awards 2019.

This year, Mandale were invited along to the Halifax Civic Trust Awards to be presented with a Highly Commended award for our renovation of Martin’s Mill.

In November 2018, Mandale Homes embarked on the restoration and renovation of the historic Halifax mill which dates back as far as the 1800s. The unused and dilapidated 19th century mill was facing dereliction before we decided to take on this project and invest £7m into a new housing development.

Whilst preserving some of the mill’s original features, we have also managed to transform the run-down building into a complex featuring 60 apartments overlooking Halifax town center. Martin’s Mill comprises 45 one-bedroom apartments and 15 two-bedroom apartments with parking for 29 residents.

Richard Harriman, Sales Director, Mandale Homes said:

“We are delighted to complete the regeneration of Martin’s Mill in Halifax into homes for local people.   Halifax is an old town that is reinventing itself and it has been a privilege to work with Calderdale Council and local stakeholders to be able to deliver a residential scheme that turns its past into its future.  We believe the scheme will appeal to young property buyers looking for town centre living. “The Council’s vision for the town has seen some amazing schemes, not least of which is the £19m reopening of Piece Hall as an open air cultural and retail venue and the transformation of Dean Clough Mills into a cluster of offices, galleries and sophisticated bars and restaurants.    The overarching theme for the town is development that suits the sense of what the Halifax community wants to be: lifestyle-oriented and blending old with new – we know our new apartments meet this image and will have real buyer appeal
