HTA’s £32m residential development in Islington underway

One of the largest housing associations in the south east of England, Southern Housing Group, has started construction work on a residential development in the London Borough of Islington.

Designed by HTA, the project will provide 65 new homes along with a large shared garden and a green roof.

Alan Townshend, Group Development Director at Southern Housing Group, said:

“Having been established as a charitable trust in 1901, we built our very first homes in Islington so we have strong historic ties with the area. We already manage 1158 homes for more than 1500 residents in the borough and, with this new highly attractive multi-tenure development, we’ll deliver an extra 65 homes and continue to meet the high demand for modern, quality homes in central London.”

The development in Old Street is within a walking distance of Shoreditch and will include 35 homes for private sale, 19 for social rent and 11 for shared ownership. All properties will have private outdoor spaces.

Southern Housing Group is working in partnership with Hill, one of England’s leading housebuilders and 2015 WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year, to build its latest residential development in Islington.

Construction is scheduled to complete towards the end of 2017.
