Braeburn Estates JV hands over offsite- constructed scheme in Lambeth


N


ew offsite affordable homes have been built as part of the regenera- tion of an old council estate in Lambeth, London, in a joint venture between Qatari Diar and the Canary Wharf Group.


The JV, named Braeburn Estates, worked in close partnership with


Lambeth Council on the off-site delivery model for the scheme, for both the regeneration works and construction of affordable homes (including four- bedroom townhouses), which are to be retained by Homes for Lambeth. The Lollard Street development comprises 89 residences plus a nursery and children’s centre, communal gardens and public realm improvements. The scheme replaces a problematic car park block, which had fallen into disrepair and was attracting anti-social behaviour, with new pedestrian routes and public open green spaces between buildings. In addition to the homes at Lollard Street, further affordable units are also being delivered within the mixed use Southbank Place development, on York Road, where 98 extra care and intermediate rent apartments are due for completion at the end of 2019. Lollard Street’s full residential offering comprises one sixteen-storey tower block, one seven storey tower block, four four-storey blocks, and 15 three-storey townhouses. The homes provided include one and two- bedroom apartments, as well as four-bedroom family houses. The buildings and interiors have been arranged to enhance natural light and increase space, and offer outdoor space for every home in the form of balconies for apartments and gardens for the townhouses. The interiors of the homes are intended to “set the benchmark for


modern, affordable housing,” said Braeburn Estates. Clean lines, open-plan areas and rooms have been designed to a high specification, “incorporating contemporary fixtures, fittings and integrated appliances, which work together to create a feeling of luxury and a comfortable, new place to live.”


DELIVERY Braeburn Estates stated that it as a result of its offsite construction methods that it has “been able to deliver one and a half times as much affordable housing in total.” The delivery model, which has focused on the available developer


subsidy being “100 per cent allocated to construction costs,” has also released sufficient funds to complete the new purpose-built school build- ing and play space for the Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ Ethelred Nursery plus Children’s Centre, for the benefit of local residents. Braeburn Estates reportedly shouldered all of the project’s construction


and regeneration costs as well as risks, and Lambeth Council celebrated the handover of the completed project at an event which was held on 18 January. Speaking at the handover ceremony, Lambeth Council leader, Cllr Lib


Peck, said: “The Lollard Street development is a fantastic example of us working with developers, through the planning system, to provide the council-level rent homes we need to help tackle our housing crisis.” The homes at Lollard Street will be offered exclusively through Lambeth Council’s subsidiary Homes for Lambeth.
