Over 250 inquiries have been made for 15 apartments, which will be sold to first time buyers through the Affordable Housing Gateway.

Andium Homes, the government's affordable housing provider, is building the Ann Street development in St Helier.

The company says the demand has been "unprecedented" for the apartments - for sale at Belmont Court at up to a 20% discount.

It is always difficult to gauge demand for these types of units, but it’s very clear it’s there. This area of town is going to benefit from significant re-development over the next 3 to 5 years.

– Jonathan Gough, Head of Financial Planning at Andium Homes

The site previously housed the large boilers which were used for beer production at the Ann Street Brewery over the road.
