Our Stadium Place development won ‘Best Large Development’ at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards.

Hosted by TV presenter, Nicki Chapman, the awards gala took place at The Waldorf Hilton in London on Friday 21st April. The event saw L&Q’s Stadium Place win over developments by Barratt London, Henley Homes and Viridian Housing. L&Q also received Highly Commended in the ‘Affordable Housing Provider of the Year’ category.

The Best Large Development category is for schemes of more than 80 homes that have used the best design and quality to create an affordable, desirable and inspirational environment, as well as providing additional facilities to benefit the local community.

Located on the site of the former Walthamstow Dog Stadium, L&Q’s Stadium Place is a landmark affordable housing development for East London, offering 99 one to four bedroom Shared Ownership apartments, townhouses and maisonettes – plus 95 affordable rent and 99 private rented homes.

Lynda Clark, editor of First Time Buyer Magazine, commented: “Stadium Place is a very impressive development which offers a range of high quality and affordable homes which will appeal to a wide range of buyers.  The development which offers a strong sense of identity remains accessible to the first time buyer market and together with its sought after East End location and impressive design, Stadium Place stood out as a clear winner to our judging panel.”

Clark continued: “Showing a clear dedication to the first time buyer market, L&Q provide excellent housing options in a climate where house prices are continuing to grow. As well as providing new homes, it is clear that L&Q go the extra mile to build communities and combine their commercial goals with social values.”
