Overlooking Clissold Park in Stoke Newington, the Kings Crescent Estate is being transformed over 2 stages with hundreds of new council homes, improvements to existing homes and new amenities that will benefit both new and current residents.
A large area of the Kings Crescent Estate has long been empty after previous regeneration attempts, intended to address poor quality homes and a street layout that made the estate feel unsafe, proved unsuccessful.
We're now putting this right, having agreed a full masterplan that will see the vacant land transformed with new homes, refurbishment of the existing homes and in a safer, more open environment better connected with the surrounding areas.
The full masterplan will see up to 472 new homes built, including:
- 97 council homes social rent
- 101 council homes for shared ownership
- the remainder for outright sale to help pay for them with little government funding for social housing
The social rent homes will be allocated to families on our housing waiting list, with priority for residents in priority need living close to the development sites.
The shared ownership, and the outright sale homes in the second stage of the project, will be sold by our in-house sales team, Hackney Sales, in accordance with our sales and marketing principles.
The shared ownership homes are priortised for people living and working in Hackney who are unable to afford to buy a home outright but are unlikely to be prioritised for social housing.
As well as the new homes, 275 current homes are receiving improvement works, including the installation of 'winter gardens' and balconies on homes that previously have had no private outdoor space of their own.
The homes have been designed to make the most of views over Clissold Park without having a negative impact on the existing homes, and have won the prestigious New London Architecture Mayor's Prize and a RIBA National Award.
The first phase, which includes 79 homes for social rent, 36 for shared ownership and 158 for outright sale, is now complete with the first residents moving in in September 2017.
In spring 2018 we began speaking with the community about plans for the next phase of the Kings Crescent regeneration, which will include up to 391 new and refurbished homes, new community and commercial spaces, and a big investment in public areas.
