A three-phased redevelopment and regeneration of a former ‘sink’ estate, delivering 421 mixed tenure homes, including 89 homes for private sale in the final phase.
Phase 1 = 140 units Phase 2 = 94 units Phase 3 = 187 units
Each phase required the decanting and demolition of existing estate blocks, and the delivery of new homes to be carried out in a live environment.
A significant element of Phase 1 was the redevelopment and remodelling of the adjacent Caledonian Park, which was transformed to provide extensive leisure facilities for the local community. This phase achieved the Building Magazine award of ‘Best Community Led Regeneration Project’.
The key to the success of this project was the close working relationship that was achieved with the local community, and the Market Estate Tenants Resident Association, together with a strong Resident Liaison presence on site.
