Housebuilder Countryside has been appointed by Hackney Council to deliver the St. Leonard’s Court development in Hoxton, London.

Designed by East London practice Child Graddon Lewis, work will start on the scheme next year and will feature 72 new homes. Just under a third (32%) will be affordable, including 21% social rented and 11% shared ownership.

The development, part of Hackney Council’s borough-wide 2,760-home estate regeneration programme, will be situated along New North Road and will be close to Shoreditch Park and Tech City, as well as Hoxton and Old Street station.

Philip Glanville, mayor of Hackney, said: “London is experiencing an unprecedented housing crisis, so I’m proud that Hackney is building the genuinely affordable homes we need to respond to the challenge.

“This council-led development being built by Countryside will mean more modern, high-quality homes for social rent and shared ownership for Hackney residents.”
