Bellway has started work on the first homes at Crossways Quarter, a development of 258 apartments being built on a five-acre site off St Mary’s Road and Crossways Boulevard.
The housebuilder is developing an area of overgrown grassland into a collection of seven apartment buildings with a pocket park and podium courtyard.
The homes will include a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with 207 homes for sale on the open market, and 51 properties for affordable rent or shared ownership.
Tom Sherriff, Managing Director of Bellway Thames Gateway, said: “There’s always a sense of anticipation when construction work begins on a new site, and we are looking forward to unlocking the potential of this disused land off Crossways Boulevard to create an attractive new neighbourhood in Greenhithe.
“As well as providing much-needed high-quality housing for the borough of Dartford, the development will revitalise a previously unloved and neglected piece of land which has become something of an eyesore.
“The homes we are building have been designed to accommodate buyers at various stages of the property ladder. The range of one and two-bedroom apartments are ideal for first-time buyers, while the larger three-bedroom properties will be well-suited to families.
“Crossways Quarter is in a prime location for commuters, as it is just a five-minute walk to Stone Crossing railway station, which has direct trains to central London in under an hour. Residents will also benefit from being just four miles from Ebbsfleet International and high-speed services to mainland Europe.
“With work now underway at Crossways Quarter, we are looking forward to making the first apartments available for sale next year.”
Plans for the new development were approved by Dartford Borough Council in December 2020.
