Lubetkin exemplar

  • Comment

You don't often find Chris Smith speaking at the opening of new housing schemes (not his department), but he made an exception in the case of Priory Heights, a mixedtenure project in his old Islington Council ward. The scheme has transformed the run-down Lubetkin building, formerly known as Wynford House, into 62 private rented and 26 social housing units - at no cost to the taxpayer. Developer Community Housing Association won the competition to do the scheme without demolition, using Lubetkin standard-bearer Avanti Architects. At one stage the demolition option looked inevitable, until Smith stepped in to support the fine scheme now realised. The Third Way triumphs!
