Peabody shortlisted for 5 First Time Buyer Awards
Several Peabody developments have been shortlisted for five different categories in the prestigous First Time Buyer Awards.
These prestigious industry awards honour the very best in the industry and celebrate companies who go the extra mile to help aspirational homebuyers; those that go beyond simply selling homes, and instead offer invaluable support and guidance to people taking their first steps to owning a home.
Affordable Housing Provider of the Year
Peabody was shortlisted for Affordable Housing provider of the Year which will be awarded to an organisation that’s shown innovation in the way they design, build and market their properties, as well as offer a variety of services to help first time buyers.
Best Architectual Design & Best First Time Buyer Apartment for The Levers
The Levers, one of our flagship schemes in Elephant & Castle, was shortlisted for two awards: Best Architectural Design and Best First Time Buyer Apartment.
The development comprises fifty-five 1, 2 & 3-bedroom apartments and duplexes for Shared Ownership and Private Sale with Help to Buy and Affordable Rent available. Designed by Alan Camp Architects, the design is inspired by the historic Victorian facade of Walworth Road.

Merchant’s Walk, Peabody’s flagship regeneration in Bow, transformed a disused site into a community of 413 new homes, with 50% affordable housing.
It was nominated for Most Innovative Marketing Campaign for our ‘Walk it, Work it, Live it’ campaign which helped 240 first time buyers onto the property ladder.
Best Show Home
And West View Battersea was nominated for Best Show Home, as it gives the buyer a chance to see the property at its maximum potential, giving them a realistic insight to their new home.
