L&Q has been shortlisted for three awards at this years’ First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards, including Best Large Development for Stadium Place in Walthamstow.

The biggest awards of its kind and now in its eighth year, the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards is a celebration of everything the industry does to help first time buyers get a foot on the property ladder.

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.

L&Q has also been nominated for Affordable Housing Provider of the Year; an award that celebrates organisations that show innovation in the way they design, build and market their properties as well as offering a variety of services to first time buyers.

L&Q’s work with Stockwool Architects on our Whitechapel Central development has also been shortlisted for the Best Urban Regeneration Project.

Previous winners of these categories include Southern Housing, East Thames Group and Catalyst.

A representative from First Time Buyer commented “we had an extremely high number of entries this year and creating a shortlist was no easy task.” The awards ceremony will take place in London this April.

You can vote for L&Q and Stadium Place on the First Time Buyers website here. Voting is now open and will close on Monday 10th April.
