Fairbank Estate redevelopment in Hoxton, London N1.
An empty car park on a Hoxton estate is redeveloped to make way for new affordable new homes for local people.
The 73 new homes, with more than half for social rent and shared ownership, will replace a concrete car park and underused land with 3 new buildings on the Fairbank Estate.
New Affordable Homes
Council tenants already living at Fairbank and nearby whose current homes don’t meet their needs will get first priority for the 28 social rent homes. 9 Shared Ownership homes will be prioritised for local families living or working in Hackney and unable to get on the housing ladder. Alongside the remaining outright sale homes which will help pay for the development in the absence of government funding, these will be marketed directly by the Council through its in-house sales team, Hackney Sales.
The plans also include a major investment to transform shared spaces on the estate to benefit both new and existing residents, including filling in the sunken area around Thaxted Court tower block to provide new planting, landscaping and play facilities.
