Former garden centre site to be transformed into £12m Luxury Care and Retirement Living Development

Stepnell has been awarded a £12 million contract to deliver a new luxury care facility in Eastcote, Solihull featuring 84 rooms and apartments.

The construction team has recently started on site to deliver the 78-week scheme on behalf of Cinnamon Care Collection, providers of luxury care homes and retirement developments.

The build comprises three two-storey buildings; a 50-bedroom care home and two additional apartment blocks featuring 34 retirement apartments, all surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens with facilities such as a restaurant and café-bar.

The brownfield site will be transformed into private care facility offering a range of services including day care, dementia care, nursing care, residential care and short-stay care.

John Rawlinson, West Midlands regional director for Stepnell said: “We are proud to be working with one of the top 20 recommended care home groups in the country.

“This disused site was where a former garden centre once stood and is now being transformed into specialist new homes for older people in the local community. At the project’s peak we will have an 80-strong team on site working to deliver the luxury new facility.

“With an increasing portfolio of high-end and luxury care homes in the UK, having been appointed to deliver another large private-sector care village in Cheltenham, we’re fast becoming known for being experts in delivering care homes and retirement living.”

Albert Josephs, head of development, said: “This is the third project the client team have negotiated with Stepnell after the experienced team delivered two earlier schemes in Oxfordshire & Gloucestershire.

“We have very high standards and our residents expect the uppermost quality from our luxury care and retirement facilities. I am confident that Stepnell will deliver an excellent development to add to our growing portfolio.”

The architects on the Cinnamon Care Collection scheme is Harris Irwin.
