Union Close - Future Mixed Tenure Development in Waltham Forest
We are delighted to announce the acquisition of a new site in Waltham Forest to provide 79 new homes in a quiet suburban area. The site, located at Union Close, Leyton, was purchased for £6.15 million from the North East London Foundation Trust (NHS) in January 2015.
The development, will be a mixed-tenure scheme made up of private sale, Shared Ownership and socially rented homes, with construction due to complete in the summer of 2018. Alan Camp Associates are the appointed architects.
Tom Hichisson, new business project manager, comments: "This site presents a fantastic opportunity to develop a high quality mixed tenure scheme in a peaceful suburban location, alongside one of the borough’s premier parks. It will deliver much-needed affordable housing to the borough. The planning proposals are for a 79 unit scheme with a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats and 3 and 4 bedroom houses. This will be together with associated parking and infrastructure works, including a large communal garden and courtyard with high quality landscaping. The scheme is currently going through the planning process and we expect it to be available in 2018".
Union Close is a quiet reisidential area next to Langthorne Park, which has beautiful walkways and a wide range of children’s play equipment, with Leytonstone Leisure Centre just to the north of the park. Also close by are Wanstead Flats and Wanstead Park, the latter of which has an idyllic setting around The Basin and Heronry Pond. To the south of the development is the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Westfield shopping centre at Stratford, which also features direct transport links to the centre of London and the east of England.
