The next phase of development is now underway at Feature17, reports Countryside.
Demolition work undertaken on site has marked the start of the building programme, which will see the delivery of 128 new homes as part of the second phase of the project, expected to complete in March 2020.
The new phase includes a variety of houses and apartments across a mixture of tenures, as well as a play area and landscaped plaza.
Upon completion, expected to take place in 2024, Feature17 will provide 436 new homes, with 38% affordable, among which 150 council homes for affordable rent. Since the beginning of the construction works on the scheme, Countryside has completed 80 homes, including both private and affordable units.
The first phase at Feature17, completed in November 2018, comprises spacious, high-specification one, two and three-bedroom apartments. All of these homes feature contemporary open-plan living areas and outdoor space in the form of either a private terrace or balcony. The light and airy apartments are located in an attractive seven-storey brick-faced building, seamlessly blending with its surroundings. As part of this phase, Countryside also constructed an Energy Centre and a commercial unit, which now houses a local Co-Op.
As part of the scheme, Countryside will create flexible retail space managed by the council around a new plaza with a play area, water feature and improved walkways and cycle routes, linking into Waltham Forest’s ‘Mini Holland’ scheme. The new community and commercial space seeks to reinvigorate the former estate and the wider area through thoughtful landscaping and an emphasis on community facilities, encouraging residents to spend more time outdoors.
Andy Fancy, Managing Director, Partnerships South (North and South), Countryside, commented: “The successful completion of the demolition work is a significant milestone, which allows us to continue making progress on Feature17. In partnership with Waltham Forest Council, we are creating much more than just houses – the community amenities and retail spaces introduced as part of the scheme will redefine the area and help it thrive”.
Cllr Clare Coghill, Leader of Waltham Forest Council, added: “We are pleased that the works at the Marlowe Road estate are progressing as planned, creating attractive and practical new homes and facilities in place of tired buildings, making the area a desirable place to live for existing community and newcomers”.

A topping out ceremony to mark the completion of the main structure at Hopson House was held at Feature 17, Countryside’s regeneration of the 50-year-old Marlowe Road Estate in partnership with Waltham Forest Council.
The ceremony was attended by Councillor Clare Coghill, Leader of Waltham Forest Council and members of the Waltham Forest Council Regeneration and Growth team.
The first affordable homes at Hopson House is part of Phase 1A of the Feature 17 development, which will deliver 103 new homes in total.
Feature 17 will provide 436 new homes, with 38% affordable, including 150 council homes for affordable rent to replace the outdated existing homes.
There will also be flexible retail space managed by the council surrounding a new plaza with improved walkways and cycle routes, which link into Waltham Forest’s ‘Mini Holland’ scheme, a play area and water feature. The new community and commercial space will transform the former estate and area surrounding Wood Street station.
Andy Fancy, Managing Director of North and South London at Countryside Partnerships South, commented: “We are really excited to be celebrating this stage in the programme for Feature17. We are proud to be delivering the affordable units two months ahead of schedule, and this shows that keeping the community at the heart of a scheme is engrained in our DNA.
“Feature17 is an excellent example of the local community, the council and Countryside working together bringing investment to the borough through their commitment to reviving the neighbourhood.”
Cllr Clare Coghill, Leader of Waltham Forest Council, added: “Houses are not just investment opportunities or bricks and mortar – they are homes. They are places for people to enjoy living and where they should feel safe and happy, close to their families and friends. Working with responsible, socially-conscious developers like Countryside means we can secure high-quality homes for our residents that enable them to make the most of their life chances.
“It is great to see the progress that is being made at Feature 17, which is dramatically improving both the housing and the community facilities in this area of Walthamstow. It’s fantastic that the delivery of these affordable units at Marlowe Road Estate is two months ahead of schedule.”

Marlowe Road development from Countryside Properties has been rebranded as Feature17.
25/04/2017 16:19 by Buildington
Planning consent has been granted for a new mixed-use development of 436 homes as well as community and commercial space.
Richard Cherry, Chief Executive of Countryside’s Partnerships division, said: “It is great news to have been given the go ahead for our plans for Marlowe Road and we look forward to getting on with the delivery of this new and improved neighbourhood. The new scheme will bring with it high-quality housing for local people, as well as a much improved public realm with safe and inviting open spaces for the local community to enjoy.”
Cllr Khevyn Limbajee, Cabinet Member for Housing at Waltham Forest Council, comments: “This regeneration scheme will dramatically improve both the housing and the area as a whole thanks to the ambitious plans that have now been approved. The issues with Marlowe Road have been long-standing and the scope of the scheme underlines the wholesale changes that were required to reclaim this community and provide it with the housing it requires to take it well on into the next century and beyond.
“It may seem that the planning consent is just the start of this journey, but for those of us involved, and not least the residents, this is just the latest milestone in a process that has been developed over many years. It is however obviously a key juncture in the scheme and we can now all move forward together with confidence to see the vision we have developed become reality.”
