Just Launched

Hill and Anchor Hanover have just launched their latest London-based development Newington Gate.

More than 70 one and two bedroom apartments were launched for sale this weekend on the 9th and 10th November, with 32 of the apartments perfect for first time buyers looking to purchase their first home.

Newington Gate embraces both the area’s independent spirit and distinct heritage. The design of the new homes reflects Newington green’s historic architecture, with traditional London stock brickwork and vertical windows, while the tranquil atmosphere of the nearby village green is echoed in the communal landscaped gardens and private balconies.

Each of the private sale apartments within Newington Gate boast stylish, open plan kitchen, living and dining rooms, energy efficient and sleek appliances, underfloor heating, private balconies and lift access. Eco-friendly features such as PV panels and MVHR ventilation units are also incorporated within the development.

Tony Woodman, Sales Director at Hill, commented: “Newington Green isn’t quite like any other London suburb. It’s an enclave for forward-thinking that places individuality at its heart and is perfectly positioned for first-time buyers. It is the ideal place for those looking to be surrounded by bespoke bars, coffee shops and restaurants – not only do the apartments benefit from easy access to the village green and eclectic high street, but they are also in walking distance of Dalston Kingsland Canonbury stations, with the latter offering direct access to Westfield Stratford and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in under 15 minutes.

“Our partnership with Anchor Hanover has already proved successful at Woodside Square in Muswell Hill and Quadra on London Fields in Hackney, and we are thrilled to be working with them on our latest development in Newington Green. We look forward to welcoming purchasers into this new community in an already exciting location.”

Philip Hulme, Sales Director at Anchor Hanover, added: “We are very pleased to be involved in this luxurious mixed tenure development in Newington Green and we look forward to becoming part of the local community. With over 45 years of experience, Anchor Hanover prides itself on giving people a choice of great places to live, and Newington Gate certainly embodies that ethos.”

Founder and CEO of Stone Real Estate, Michael Stone, commented: “Newington Gate hasn’t just benefitted from an overspill in buyer demand from other trendy surrounding areas such as Stoke Newington, it has always been an established, go-to neighbourhood in its own right.

“It offers very convenient transport links into the city and beyond but lies just enough off the beaten track to have maintained its village-like neighbourhood feel and this is a theme that runs throughout the community.

“It encapsulates everything that is great about living in London, individuality, creativity, a thriving social scene and unlike most other London neighbourhoods, a wealth of independent shops, pubs and restaurants rule the roost with barely any chains to be seen.

“Most importantly, Newington Gate is a melting pot of people from all walks of life living side by side, and this not only creates a great community fabric, but makes the area popular amongst buyers of all ages.”

Prices at Newington Gate start from £470,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, and £600,000 for a two-bedroom apartment.

Work has already started on the Newington Gate site, which sits on the border of the London Boroughs of Hackney and Islington on Matthias Road. As part of the proposals, a five-storey block will be replaced with 72 new homes as well as a community resource centre and three retail units.

Paul Jordan, Regional Director at Hill, commented:
“We are delighted to be working with Hanover to deliver another joint venture project together in London. Developing underutilised land is key to delivering much-needed homes across the Capital and we are proud that 56% of the homes at Newington Gate will be affordable. Multi-generational living has numerous benefits for both younger and older residents, and whilst it is growing in popularity across London, developers have a responsibility to encourage this where possible by providing suitable housing.

“Newington Gate is perfectly positioned for first-time buyers and over 55’s alike, the surrounding area has a village-like charm whilst vibrant bars, coffee shops and restaurants are just a short walk away in Dalston. Residents will also benefit from excellent transport links as Canonbury and Dalston Kingsland stations are a short walk from the development, with the former offering direct services to Westfield Stratford and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in under 15 minutes.”

Claire Anderson, Director of Development at Hanover added:
‘‘Hill is an award-winning and trusted housebuilder, with whom we have already worked on a number of new developments in London with. We are delighted to be collaborating with them once again. This will help us deliver much needed high quality, affordable housing and a great new space for the local community.

“As one of our primary locations for new properties, Newington Gate brings further investment in the Hackney area, creating 72 new high-quality apartments. Once complete, these well-designed and spacious homes will be set amidst beautifully landscaped areas that will enhance the environment well beyond the boundaries of the site.”

Sales at Newington Gate will launch in 2019, with the first homes expected to be complete in summer 2020.
