It is the first time in 10 years the company has built apartments in South Shields and the announcement comes after a report to South Tyneside Council last week showed hundreds of new home are required to meet the needs of local residents.
The firm already has 223 two, three and four bedroom homes are under construction on the site, with work expected to be completes in 2020.
Lindsay Hall, sales manager for Keepmoat in the North East, said: “We recognised that there was a distinct demand for a smaller product which would cater for first time buyers in the region. These growing market demands led to the decision to provide stylish new apartments, which would complement the existing scheme.
“We haven’t built apartments in South Shields for a number of years but our projects are always crafted to ensure we meet the specific needs of the areas.
“We want this new neighbourhood to integrate into the existing retail area, while attracting new residents, so that the local trade can thrive once again.”
Trinity South, part of the South Shields Riverside Regeneration plan, is a joint partnership between South Tyneside Council, Keepmoat and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
