Countryside Properties has undertaken the refurbishment of existing Local Authority and Housing Association properties for the last 20 years. The majority of the renovation work has involved comprehensive refurbishment including external recladding, the replacement of external balconies with sun rooms, the internal remodelling of accommodation, as well as the total modernisation of kitchens and bathrooms.
At Crossways in Tower Hamlets we are undertaking the complete refurbishment of three 24 storey tower blocks to provide 309 homes for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and Swan Housing Group. The Crossways Estate will also enjoy newly constructed transport links, landscaped public and private gardens with secure car parking.
The existing estate suffers from residents only being able to access the buildings via elevated walkways which are above very poorly maintained public open spaces with the estate dissected by a covered railway link. Using contemporary design principles, including a ‘Very Good’ EcoHomes rating, and sympathetically tackling the problems of noise, day lighting, and visual continuance, the new Crossways Estate will be a long-term solution to the estate’s regeneration.
"Countryside Properties has a wealth of experience in this type of regeneration which will help us to fulfil our ambitions for Crossways."
