Stitch has won planning for its scheme to redevelop the Marlowe Road estate in Walthamstow
The practice’s competition winning 436-home scheme for Countryside Properties will revive the ‘deprived’ 1960s estate which currently has 298 low-rise council homes plus a further 100 flats in the 20-storey Northwood Tower.
As part of the £130 million scheme 150 council homes will be demolished and re-built - the tower will be retained - together with an additional 280 new homes ranging from four bedroom family houses with private gardens, to maisonettes and apartments with roof terraces and courtyard gardens.
It is understood Waltham Forest Council will buy 40 of these homes allowing residents to purchase them through shared ownership.
The proposals also include a re-designed central plaza north of Wood Street station more than 1,000m² of new commercial space, including a Co-operative store, local Post Office and new community uses.
