Latest on Riverside Park in Ashford

Quinn Estates were delighted to attend the Topping Out ceremony at Riverside Park with GRE Assets this week.

The first phase of the 660-home development near the town centre is on schedule to open early next year.

Mark Quinn, managing director, Quinn Estates said: “A site like this can be incredibly difficult because of contaminants and flood risk, but so far it’s been exactly what we were expecting and what we’re here for. I’m surprised no one developed it before, and I’m really pleased.

“This is the biggest development we’re on at the moment and one of the biggest in Kent, so it’s really nice to see it come to fruition as a result of the great team effort between GRE Assets and Quinn Estates.

“We’ve got hundreds of people working with us which is a real boom for the area. It will put thousands of people through Bank Street and help massively with the economic regeneration of the town centre.”

Phase one is set for completion in the first quarter of 2019.
