HG Construction is partnering with Pocket Living to deliver an 86 one-bedroom home scheme for first-time buyers at Woodside Park in Barnet, London.
Woodside Park N12 is located adjacent to Woodside Park Station in Barnet. The development will provide 86 Pocket homes across two separate buildings each rising to four storeys. Everyone living at Woodside Park N12 will have access to two rooftop gardens with allotment beds for residents to grow their own produce. Secure cycle storage will also be provided, and Kings Cross St Pancras Station can be reached via the Northern Line in just 24 minutes.
The scheme is the culmination of several years of planning and managing technical hurdles associated with the site’s proximity to the railway track, including complex works to cable infrastructure. The homes will be sold to Barnet’s first-time buyers at a 20% discount to the local market.
Nick Cuff, Pocket Living’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “This is exactly the kind of challenging small site which needs to come forward if we are to solve the housing crisis. Whilst there have been challenges along the way the joint working between the TFL and Pocket teams will now lead to the creation of 86 first time buyer homes for local residents of Barnet.”
“Pocket has always been at the heart of innovative collaborations in the housing sector and we believe new thinking and working in partnership with the public sector is crucial if we are serious about tackling the housing crisis. The delivery of this site demonstrates our commitment to this.
“We are also thrilled to be working on the delivery side again with our construction partners HG. This will be the fifth collaboration with their team and we are all looking forward to seeing this building coming out of the ground.”
Conor Rice, Managing Director, HG Construction, comments: “HG Construction has built up a wealth of experience in delivering challenging and complex London schemes which is highly relevant to this project. We have an excellent working relationship with Pocket Living and we are delighted to be partnering with them again to deliver this innovative Woodside Park scheme which will help address the local housing shortage.”
