Our Unity Works development in Walthamstow has been shortlisted for an Inside Housing Development Award for best shared ownership scheme.

The awards celebrate the very best residential developments across the UK from the past year. The winners will be announced on 29 November.

IHDA finalist

Unity Works comprises 30 new shared ownership homes at the centre of the Blackhorse Road regeneration area in Waltham Forest.

The scheme provided excellent value for money for first time buyers, with an average property value of £383,500. This was 10% less than the borough average, and at least £100,000 cheaper than the average property price in London.

Sharon Barret, who bought a wheelchair adaptable home at the scheme, commented: “The flat is lovely, higher ceilings, great sound proofing and all adaptable needs were completed before moving in. The buying process was absolutely brilliant!”.
