The scheme (pictured above) has a GDV of £82m and will comprise 80 homes for outright sale, 33 homes for social rent and 19 for shared ownership.
It will also offer a total of 3,115m2 of communal and accessible open space and a new 361m2 depot for the Hatzola ambulance service, the local Jewish-led fast response volunteer service.
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 Hackney Council’s housing waiting list.
The shared ownership homes will look to support those struggling to get on the housing ladder, with priority for people living and working in Hackney.

“Being selected for this project reflects our reputation for delivering high standards of accommodation that can be called home by all communities,” said Andy Fancy, managing director for north and south London at Countryside Partnerships South.
“We look forward to working with Hackney Council to deliver a desirable neighbourhood in the heart of London, which encourages a sense of community and shared identity.
“Our urban development experience will be vital to creating a development that improves the lives of local residents yet remains sensitive to the site’s historic surroundings.”
Adam Khan Architects was appointed by the council in September 2015 to design the new homes alongside Muf Architecture/Art, which will be designing the landscape and public space.
