Loughborough Park Estates

Brixton

With the help of 16.3million grant funding from the Greater London Authority, and working alongside contractors Countryside Properties and architects bptw partnership, the 390

Guinness South flats are being demolished and rebuilt to create 525 new apartments in six blocks, in a five-phase project lasting nearly seven years.

Improvements to the scheme will see the addition of lifts, more spacious apartments, door security and a number of environmentally-friendly features, including a combined heat and power plant, photo-voltaic panels and a green roof system.

Although it was once regarded as a model housing scheme, the 1939 estate is now failing to meet Decent Homes Standards and is looking tired and out-of-place alongside newly regenerated parts of Brixton, which has seen considerable investment and modernisation over the past decade.

All residents in the blocks earmarked for demolition in phases one and two with rights to remain have been re-housed in refurbished apartments elsewhere on the scheme, until their new homes are ready.

This major regeneration project will transform a rundown and tired looking neighbourhood in Brixton into a modern housing estate which will bring tremendous benefits to the residents who live there.

It heralds a fantastic new era in which residents can look forward to better quality homes, a better quality of life, and a better overall environment.
