Pocket gets moving in Lambeth

On track to deliver 127 new Pocket homes in Lambeth in 2016

 

It’s all happening in Lambeth! Having just started building our latest development Mountearl Gardens SW16 in Streatham, Pocket has this corner of London on the brain. One of the boroughs where city makers most want to buy their first home is Lambeth, and what’s not to like?! Lambeth stretches all the way from the River Thames (overlooking Westminster) through multicultural Brixton, down to leafy Streatham.  There’s something for everyone, and we are underway with Pocket schemes dotted from the top of the borough to the bottom, between them delivering 127 affordable Pocket homes, most of them one bedroom.

 

Construction at Wynne Road SW9 is well underway, and having started last week on-site at Mountearl Gardens SW16 we are really excited about the innovative modular construction methods we’re using, working with Donban Contracting UK,  to reduce construction times and improve economies of scale – getting these homes delivered sooner.  Sail Street and Juxon Street are due to start construction January 2016, using this same innovative approach.  Here’s a round-up of all our upcoming Lambeth schemes:

Festivalling the Pocket way!

Go to Glastonbury?  Or keep local, stay dry, sleep in a nice warm bed?

Getting muddy at Glastonbury this weekend?  It’s obviously the icon of all festivals – but there is another way.  At Pocket we like to skip the horrors of the M4, the queues for the showers, the mud up to our knees.  We like to stay local and enjoy the festival spirit a bit closer to home… with the promise of a guaranteed shower and a warm bed at the end of the day!  Wherever you live in London, there’s almost certainly a festival of sorts in your local area.  They might not all be the Notting Hill Carnival, but small and intimate beats big and brash every time in our book (just like our flats!).  We’ve done a quick scan of all the areas where our city makers are most likely to live, and come up with this roundup of London’s local festivals taking place this summer, and beyond.
