The first homes, in Building R4 on York Way, have been completed and residents are now moving in. 

The 117 affordable, shared ownership and supported homes have been built in small groups around the three cores creating a sense of community on each floor. Some of the flats are dual aspect, with amazing views of London from the upper floors. The homes are all connected to the development’s district heating network and have high levels of insulation and ventilation. The ground floor contains several retail units and there is a large roof garden on Level 10 for the shared ownership residents which will be planted with the help of Global Generation. Bird and bat boxes have been designed into the building and there is a green roof, with native species on part of the building. 

Camden Council is allocating all of the 78 homes to people on its housing list and One Housing Group, through its agent Site Sales, is advertising the 24 shared ownership homes. For information, visit www.onenewhome.co.uk
