The regeneration of Stockwell Park Estate by Network Homes continues to make excellent progress.
This year we have had great success with awards won for our developments.
Stockwell Park Estate won 'Best Regeneration Project' at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards and Silver for 'Best Regeneration Scheme' at the What House? Awards 2016.
Our new building Park Heights won 'Best Design' at the National Housing Awards. This new 159 home building replaces Wayland House, a poor quality 1960s tower block at 25 Robsart Street. The 20-storey building includes 84 homes for social rent and 75 apartments for private sale, and boasts a roof garden with panoramic views across London. Many of the former residents of the old tower block chose to return and now have brand new homes still at social rents.
The building was officially opened by television and film star Joanna Lumley in September. Five of the original families were able to join us at the opening event. A couple of them even got to show special guest Joanna Lumley around their new homes.
Another development of ours, The Junction, located next to our Housing Office, won Gold for 'Best Starter Scheme' at the What House? Awards 2016.
