Demolition works have already started on the £12 million development on London Lane in the borough of Hackney. The six-storey development, which is being built by Higgins Construction, will create 49 new homes including 28 flats for shared ownership, 12 for open market sale and nine, three and four bedroom houses and maisonettes for affordable rent.
Paul Cooke, New Business Director for Higgins Construction comments, “London Lane represents a key project for us going forward in 2016 and 2017 and we are delighted to be working with Southern Housing Group again following our partnership at Bow River Village.
“We are also extremely committed to taking on local labour and will be creating opportunities for local people through our training and apprenticeship schemes.”
In addition to providing new housing, London Lane will also include 750m2 of commercial space. Works are scheduled to be completed in summer 2017.
