Giffen Place provides spacious apartment accommodation in a quiet, mature setting in a beautiful part of east Belfast. There is convenient pedestrian access to the Upper Newtownards Road, with easy access to the Glider bus route, Stormont Estate and local cafes.
Having been completed in early 2021, Giffen Place is Alpha's newest scheme. The development incorporates the 'HAPPI principles', the blueprint for high-quality housing for older people. This includes generous internal space standards, extensive natural light and plenty of green space. Each of the three apartment blocks has its own cosy seating areas for meeting neighbours.
The attractive grounds are still being landscaped, including through the planting of new trees and shrubs. Lovely seating areas have been provided, including by the 'Knock River' stream.
