Description of Nightingale Estate

Nightingale Estate is a development in Clapton, London E5.

2017 January - Designs for the 400 homes at the 2ha site on the Nightingale Estate – which followed years of consultation with local residents – were agreed by the Council’s Planning Committee.

The new development comprises 400 mixed tenure dwellings with 232m2 of mixed retail/cafe floorspace (A1/A3 use) in three retail units, a new community centre of 453sqm (D1 use) and a new management office of 62sqm (B1 use). Hackney.gov.uk ref no 2016/2841.

The residential component will comprise a series of five and
six storey north-south aligned duel mansion blocks with private and shared landscaped gardens.

The ground floor of 22 storey Seaton Point will be refurbished.

Construction starts in late 2017.

Local residents spent more than two years contributing to the design of the new homes and public spaces, led by award-winning practice Karakusevic Carson Architects, together with Henley Halebrown Rorrison Architects, Stephen Taylor Architects and Townshend Landscape Architects.

The Estate In 2017

In 2017 The Nightingale Estate is a large, predominantly residential estate, situated to north of Hackney Downs, east of Rectory Road and west of Lower Clapton Road, in the ward of Hackney Downs. It covers a total area of over 9ha and has a mix of low, medium and high-rise housing, predominantly built between 1960 and 2008.

In addition to varied residential buildings, there is a parade of former shops located on Olympus Square, which also includes a public park and play area. There are a number of community buildings located at the centre of the estate, which are used by local community groups on a temporary basis.

The Nightingale Estate is principally in the Council’s ownership, however, parts of the estate are owned and managed by Southern Housing Group and a small number of properties by Bangla Housing Association.

Designs for the 400 homes at the two-hectare site on the Nightingale Estate were agreed by the Council’s Planning Committee last night, reports Hackney Council.

The homes for social rent, shared ownership and outright sale are part of the Council’s estate regeneration programme, which will see more than 3,000 homes built at sites across the borough.

The new development will complete the regeneration of the Nightingale Estate, joining more than 300 affordable homes already built by award-winning housing association Southern Housing Trust and nearly 400 more refurbished Council homes.

Other highlights include improvements to public spaces across the estate, with new trees, lighting and playgrounds, as well as a new community centre, café and retail space.

Philip Glanville, Mayor of Hackney, said: “This fantastic development, with its high-quality design, is the result of years of close work with local residents, and will bring hundreds of desperately needed new homes for Hackney.

I’m proud that we are building thousands of new homes ourselves through our Estate Regeneration Programme – with more than half for social rent or shared ownership.

Last night’s decision means we can now get to work on delivering more homes for residents struggling to find an affordable place to rent or buy."

Local residents spent more than two years contributing to the design of the new homes and public spaces, led by award-winning practice Karakusevic Carson Architects, together with Henley Halebrown Rorrison Architects, Stephen Taylor Architects and Townshend Landscape Architects.

The Council’s Estate Regeneration Programme – one of the largest in London – will see thousands of modern, high-quality homes built to replace ageing homes that are uneconomical to repair. More than half will be for Council social rent and shared ownership, paid for by some homes for outright sale in the absence of any government funding.

Hackney will also be the first borough to see 500 new homes built at Sadiq Khan’s London Living Rent, with rents based on a third of average local earnings to help low and middle-income households facing rent hikes in the private sector.
