Limelight community health and well-being hub wins Northern Housing Award

By PRP – 18 May 2018

PRP is delighted to announce that the Limelight community health and well-being hub is a winner in the Northern Housing Awards 2018, securing the 'Affordable Housing' category.

Located at the heart of Old Trafford, the development integrates 81 extra-care apartments with GP surgeries and community facilities, including a café, event space, library and nursery. Offices for council services and social enterprises are also provided, together with sports and recreation facilities and the re-provision of St Brides Church.

Limelight is one of the first integrated hubs to be delivered in the UK, and is a model for future age friendly developments, which places older people at the heart of their diverse community.

Judges complemented the project 'on its unique approach in combining community and health facilities alongside new, high quality homes.'

Delivered by our Manchester studio, the project is a strategic development within the Trafford Housing Trust's vision to regenerate the area.
