Skillcrown secures £18.5million property project for Affordable Housing Scheme in Bermondsey

Skillcrown, South-East London’s leading property developer has secured a development contract to deliver 86 one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments in Bermondsey.

Working together with Housing Association, Optivo, the £18.5million project for Affordable Rent tenure will be built ranging in height from four to nine storeys. The development will also feature in excess of 7,000spft commercial space on the ground floor together with cycle and disabled car parking and refuse/recycling stores.

Located on Hatcham Road and Ilderton Road, the accommodation will benefit future residents as it is in close proximity to South Bermondsey station, providing frequent Southeastern railway services into Central London. Construction of the project will commence in the final quarter of 2019 and is expected to be completed by 2022.

“We are thrilled to have secured another project with Optivo to deliver these affordable homes and help kick start the regeneration of the Old Kent Road area”, said Kevin Clark, Land & Business Development Director. “At Skillcrown, it is our mission to continue assisting in providing affordable long-term housing solutions across London and the South-East and we are looking forward to seeing this project assist London’s housing needs”.

Director of Land & New Business at Optivo, Neill Tickle comments:

“We are delighted to be working with Skillcrown to deliver high quality and well needed Affordable homes in Southwark. This Hatcham Road scheme complements our neighbouring Ilderton Road project that’s already under construction and shows Optivo’s intention to drive the change that the Old Kent Road regeneration will bring for the area and for local people’’.

Along with this newly acquired contract, Skillcrown is also currently developing 113 apartments in Croydon for Shared Ownership, Affordable Rent and London Living Rent on behalf of Optivo.
