We are thrilled to announce that Southall Village has won ‘Best Regeneration Initiative’ at the 2020 Evening Standard New Homes Awards.
Recognising an inspired scheme that has transformed a neglected site into a vibrant new quarter, Southall Village is reinvigorating the former Havelock Estate, delivering 922 high quality homes and establishing a thriving canalside neighbourhood.
Introducing significant parkland and play areas to the estate, as well as bringing a 500m stretch of the Grand Union Canal back into public use, judges commended Catalyst’s holistic approach to regeneration.
Catalyst’s masterplan divides the site into a series of vibrant ‘micro neighbourhoods’, characterised by different housing types and styles, from sleek canalside apartments to spacious townhouses overlooking the green.
An impressive 53% of homes are affordable, including 30 rented homes in the current phase specially designed for over-55s. Designed to be ‘tenure blind’, these properties blend seamlessly with the private sale and Shared Ownership* properties.
Essential to a successful regeneration project, Catalyst worked in close tandem with the local community. An independent resident’s group has delivered over 30 community projects, and a weekly Community Payback presence has clocked up 3,600 volunteer hours keeping Havelock clean.
