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:
25 affordable Pocket homes, close to the heart of the Brixton action. Wynne Road SW9 is our first Lambeth scheme and is already on-site, with sales due to launch early 2016. Register your interest now, these will be popular!
Our first development in Streatham, Mountearl Gardens SW16 is located on the edge of the lovely Mountearl Gardens estate. Our contractors Donban Contracting UK started on site last week, so we’re on schedule to deliver 32 Pocket homes by Autumn 2016, with sales launching in the summer.
31 affordable Pocket homes, located wonderfully close to the river and Westminster, and just minutes from Lambeth North tube station. The building is beautifully designed by HKR Architects, and construction (using modular techniques) is due to start in January 2016. Sales will launch later in the year.
39 affordable Pocket homes, right next door to Sail Street. This building is also designed by HKR Architects, and the delivery schedule is in line with Sail Street.
