Experts in regeneration
We are experts in estate regeneration. Network Homes is currently leading on a number of major regeneration schemes in London and the Home Counties, ranging from around 150 homes to nearly 1,500 homes.
Our current large scale regeneration projects
The £175 million transformation of the 1,400 home Stockwell Park estate in Lambeth is our flagship regeneration project. In 2015 we published The Stockwell Story, detailing the huge change we have delivered to Stockwell Park, working in close partnership with the local residents.
In 2016 we completed Park Heights, our landmark 20 storey tower of 159 high quality homes, with spectacular views across central London. All of the homes have generous space standards. There is a 24 hour concierge service and the building is crowned with two beautiful sky gardens. The entrances and communal areas are used by all residents, irrespective of tenure. Park Heights is our penultimate major new building on the estate.
Work has started on the final stage of our project to regenerate the Stockwell Park Estate. We are redeveloping a 1960s tower block (Thrayle House) into 178 new homes including 41 for social rent, 40 for older people and 96 for private sale.The 178 Thrayle House redevelopment will follow in 2018, including new retail space. Residents of the former homes on the estate have all been given the right to return to the new homes if they wish to.
We're also providing a wide range of communal facilities on the estate. We invested £1.8 million refurbishing the community centre which opened in in 2017 - this was a key priority for us when we took on the regeneration. The refurbishment included upgrading the centre’s facilities and extending the building. Network Homes and Community Trust (which runs the centre) worked together on the new designs to create an amazing new space including a youth recreation centre, café, main hall and an open plan area for activities. Together we ensured the centre remained open and services were still available to the public while the improvements took place.
Network Homes' regeneration of Rectory Park will create 425 new homes, increasing the estate’s density by 155 properties. The estate was originally built between the 1950s and 1970s and includes two storey maisonettes and flats in medium rise blocks.
The residents of Rectory Park, supported by Ealing Council, selected Network to regenerate the estate by providing new homes and facilities. We appointed Hill Partnerships to carry out the construction.
Residents have been at the heart of this project since the start. We consulted with them extensively on the design of the new homes, landscaping and play areas so we can deliver their vision for their new community.
So far, 160 new homes have been completed. We have detailed planning consent to deliver the last three phases of this exciting five phase regeneration project and phase 3 began in spring 2016.
We've kickstarted the £30 million regeneration of The Ridgeway estate in Hertford to transform the poor quality ageing buildings into 120 modern, mixed tenure family homes.
East Herts Council and Homes England are supporting us with funding. The final development will comprise 70 homes for affordable and social rent and 50 homes for shared ownership.
The existing residents have been involved with the project throughout. Through formal consultation they made clear their preference for redevelopment rather than refurbishment and they have continued to influence the final plans for the estate.
The result will be exciting, contemporary new homes, ready for occupation in 2018.
Network Homes is working with Stanhope to deliver 575 new homes, 2,100 sqm of office space and 318 sqm of flexible commercail floorspace to Southall in Ealing.
Designed by Cartwright Pickard, the development will feature four separate buildings of between 15 and 23 storeys with a 2-storey podium. The regeneration of this light industrial site next to Southall railway station in the Southall Housing Zone, Ealing represents the first project between Network Homes and Stanhope to deliver innovative residential-led schemes that answer London’s need for more high quality housing, as part of a c£200m joint venture.
The scheme will be car free but with 926 cycle parking spaces and two dedicated servicing bays on Merrick Road. Communal gardens and public realm space will be created on the Merrick Road frontage and landscaping, play and amenity space areas within the site. 35% of all residential units by habitable rooms will be affordable, with a tenure split of, 30% London Affordable Rent, 70% Shared Ownership.
Within 100m of the new Southall Crossrail station and less than 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Southall, the development in Merrick Road will act as a gateway site, helping to trigger the transformational regeneration of Southall over the next decade, in line with Ealing Council’s aims. Several large sites nearby have been purchased by other developers.
We know that regeneration is about more than bricks and mortar. It’s about all the possibilities that come with good affordable home. Regenerating run down areas helps to sustain communities, improve quality of life for the residents, transform urban landscapes, restore pride, and boost local economies.
We create mixed tenure and mixed use places, working closely with our local authority and construction partners to ensure designs are right for the area, and existing residents are given the opportunity to return where the best solution is redevelopment. Most important of all, we consult fully with local residents to ensure our plans will deliver for them.
We have the appetite, financial capacity and skills to deliver large scale, multi-use, complex developments over many years. We tailor our approach to the situation, and we’re good at finding innovative solutions to regeneration challenges.
