Countryside has been chosen by Hackney council to build 132 new homes at the former Tower Court estate in Stamford Hill, north London

Located next to Clapton Common, Tower Court will include 80 homes for outright sale, 33 homes for social rent and 19 homes for shared ownership.

The £82m development will also include 3,115sq m of communal and accessible open space, and a new 361sq m depot for the Hatzola ambulance service – the local Jewish-led fast response volunteer service

Adam Khan Architects was appointed by the council in September 2015 to design the new homes, while Muf Architecture/Art is designing the landscape and public space.

The previous residents at Tower Court will have a right to return to the new homes, with the remaining social rent homes allocated to those on the council’s housing waiting list.

The shared ownership homes are set to provide a more affordable route into home ownership, with priority given to people living and working in Hackney.

The Tower Court Estate is part of the council’s estate regeneration programme of 18 sites, which is set to deliver more than 2,700 homes across the borough.

Countryside has started work on part of this, a 72 home scheme at St Leonard’s Court last October.
