Victorian mill transformed into stunning new apartments

A Victorian garment mill in Ilkeston has been transformed into 37 stunning, unique apartments following a multi-million pound facelift.

Rutland Mill, a former glove and hosiery factory, has been transformed into quality homes for rent in a partnership with developer 8BUK.

The stunning apartments are a marriage of contemporary living alongside the Mill’s original timber beams, window design and façade. It also features four beautifully finished penthouse apartments.

The one and two bedroom apartments are available to rent from Limehouse, a subsidiary of Futures, which is developing more than 1,000 new homes to help tackle the East Midlands’ chronic housing shortage.

Marcus Keys, Group Director of Business Growth & Transformation at Futures, said: “These stunning, contemporary apartments are the perfect addition to our regeneration portfolio and clearly demonstrate our development aspirations and choice of new home offer.

“Futures is always looking for like-minded partners to help deliver quality homes in the East Midlands because the simple fact is the region needs 25,000 more homes in the next five years.

“Futures is doing its bit by working in partnership with local authorities and builders to deliver as many homes as possible and we are on course to have provided more than 1,000 new homes by 2020.”

Gary Sanders, Financial Controller of the developer 8B (UK) Limited, said: “This asset will provide superb quality homes and make a positive difference to the lives of many, something 8B (UK) Limited is very proud of.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Futures Housing Group and we look forward to forging an even stronger partnership in the future, completing many more developments together.”

Rutland Mill is a late 19th century three-storey brick hosiery factory on the east side of Market Street, Ilkeston which was originally erected for C and F Sudbury and later used by Rutland Garments. The building was later converted into offices and a club.

Rutland Mill apartments will be marketed through our commercial development company Limehouse Developments. Apartments will be available from £525 per month and are expected to get snapped up quickly.
