Countryside beat rival joint venture bidder Laing O’Rourke/Keepmoat with plans to demolish the four existing tower blocks with 800 homes council-owned, private and shared ownership homes to be owned by Newlon Housing Trust.
The demolition marks the start of this £315m-plus regeneration of the 1960s estate at Ponders End in Enfield.
Once complete in 2028, the entire development will comprise 993 homes, including 200 council rented homes and 199 shared-ownership properties.
Robert Wilkinson, operations director at Countryside Partnerships South, said: “Having forged a close partnership with Enfield Council, we’re excited to begin the regeneration of this post-war housing estate.
“This is the borough’s largest housing estate renewal scheme and will no doubt act as a catalyst for the wider regeneration of the Ponders End area.”
