St Johns Hill shortlisted for Placemaking award
Peabody’s £120m regeneration of the St John’s Hill estate in Clapham Junction has been shortlisted in the ‘Best housing scheme’ category at the 2013 Placemaking Awards.
The awards are aimed at showcasing and rewarding the best projects, plans, people and organisations that are making places better. The trophies will be presented at an awards ceremony at the British Museum on Tuesday 28 January.
The total development, which will be delivered in 3 phases, will result in 13,600 square metres of open space, a new public route from Clapham Junction station to Wandsworth Common, community facilities, commercial space, and 527 homes (up from the existing 353).
Peabody’s development manager at St John’s Hill, Cathy Bacon, said:
“We are very proud to have been nominated for this award. This project will have wide-reaching, hugely beneficial effects on Peabody’s estate, and will help us realise our 21st Century Peabody vision, which is to integrate developments into the wider community.”
Phil Villars, Managing Director of Indigo Planning, said:
“This scheme is an important step towards improving affordable housing provision in the area, and helping to achieve Peabody’s vision for making its homes and facilities an integral part of the wider community. We are delighted that the project has been shortlisted for an award and that we had the opportunity to be a part of that process.”
