Skillcrown secures £14m Colliers Wood apartment project

Skillcrown, leading property developers in South East London, is delighted to secure a further project with existing client, Clarion Housing Group. The £14 million affordable housing development in Colliers Wood, London is the third project Skillcrown is currently underway with and comprises: 74 one, two and three bed apartments with 58 for shared ownership, 11 for rent and five starter homes.

The site is located in a prime spot in Colliers Wood on Fortescue Road, just 0.3 miles to the town centre and underground station, providing convenient access into Central London. Expected to take approximately two years to complete, future residents will have the benefit of 29 car parking spaces, a children’s play area as well as stunning landscaping. Beautiful parks also surround the area, including Wandle Meadow Nature Park and Lavender Park.

Skillcrown Land & Business Development Director, Kevin Clark comments:

“The project, openly marketed by Savills attracted some healthy competition for us. However, our track record working with Clarion Housing Group proved key in securing the project.”

He continues:

“Being able to provide affordable housing in London is vital, not only to offer desirable living spaces but also to give people a chance to get onto the property ladder. Delivering this project means we can continue to help provide much needed housing in London.”

“Having sold a site to Skillcrown and Clarion Housing Group in the past, we were confident they could deliver on Fortescue Road and had no hesitation recommending them as the preferred buyer to our client” said Andrew Cox, Development Director at Savills. “We were delighted with the quick and simple turnaround from Skillcrown, taking just six weeks for the sale to complete.”
