Flyby Photography was recently commissioned by GRE assets to capture from the air a number of developments in Ashford town, to highlight the regeneration projects and investments that are currently ongoing in the area.
We have been capturing progress of the Riverside Park developments on Victoria Road for a number of months now, the site which is led by local developers Quinn Estates is really taking shape and phase one internals have now begun.
Our client managed to obtain permission for us to fly from Elwick place, the new cinema complex on Elwick Road, which is a 100,000 sq ft leisure and restaurant development in the heart of Ashford town centre- home to a 6 screen picture house cinema, a 58 room Travelodge hotel, eight new restaurants and cafes and a 282 space car park with future scope of a residential phase providing up to 200 apartments. We shot the development early in the morning to mitigate risk of traffic distraction, and notified local police as well as HS1 of our flights.
We then moved on to the recently opened connect 38- the first building to be launched on the Ashford Commercial Quarter site and one of Ashfords ‘big 8’ developments. The building delivers 80,500 sq ft of office, restaurant and retail space and has created 481 full time jobs in the area, as well as being ideally located next to Ashford International train Station, with high speed links to Europe and London’s St Pancras in just 38 minutes.
We also shot Ashford’s first ‘big 8’ project, the state of the art £26m campus, part of the Hadlow group which opened in September 2017.
