Airey Miller are delighted our scheme 'The Featherstone' has been recognised with one of the most acclaimed awards in our industry.
The Featherstone is a £32 million urban development in central London, comprising 65 properties; including 46% affordable homes for first time buyers, which exceeds normal planning requirements. Southern Housing Group, one of the largest housing associations in South East England, have commissioned and will be managing the unique collection of one, two, three and four bedroom apartments and duplexes. The Featherstone was developed without government funding, therefore the sale of the open market homes are essential to providing cross-subsidy funding for affordable homes. Southern Housing Group are confident the range of property sizes and tenure will encourage a real mix of residents.
Giving definition to the ultimate urban living experience with work and leisure on your door step, The Featherstone is well equipped to provide urbanites and citydwellers alike with the best of both worlds. The Featherstone includes a biodiverse and integrated landscaped garden that encourages wildlife and a gardening culture amongst its residents. The building utilises reconstituted materials which provides historical continuity within the local community, and so an easy transition between the new and existing architecture. In addition there will be an improved streetscape and landscape to the existing Featherstone Street, thus benefiting the local community. This exciting new development offers a fantastic opportunity to start a new chapter of your life as a homeowner with all the benefits of our nations capital on your door step.
This brand-new award category for 2017 is for the best development of any size in the South of England (for the purposes of this category – below Birmingham). A highly competitive market place where the construction of new homes is increasing, this award recognises an exceptional range of new homes that stands out from the crowd whilst remaining accessible to first time buyers.
The First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards are some of the most acclaimed in the industry. The Awards are a fantastic annual celebration of some of the many lengths that are gone to in order to help aspirational buyers on to the housing ladder. From house builders and Housing Associations to legal companies, these prestigious awards are now in their 8th year, and their existence ensures that the best in the business are recognised and rewarded for their hard work.
This year’s event will take place on April 21st at The Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London where industry professionals will come together to find out the winners and highly commended of the 16 categories, ranging from Private Developer of the Year to Affordable Housing Provider of the Year.
