A new regeneration project will take a huge step forward when the leader of the London Borough of Bexley opens Redrow Homes' new development.
Councillor Teresa O'Neill will cut the ribbon to launch the venture, named Ratio. The marketing suite and show apartment will then open to the public on July 13 when the first properties will go on sale.
In total 372 homes are planned on the former Howbury Centre site, off Slade Green Road, and the project is to be phased over a number of years. Bringing high quality new housing to meet strong demand in the area, the properties will range from two bedroom apartments to townhouses and three and four bedroom family homes.
Redrow will also be building a new neighbourhood shop and providing open amenity space for public use. The site will also be home to new and redeveloped facilities created by the London Borough of Bexley, including a multi-functional community centre and two primary schools.
Keith Parrett, managing director of Redrow in the south east, said: "Our vision for Ratio is to create a development that stands the test of time, a place people will be proud to call home and one that is in keeping with the character of the area.
"The properties will be traditional in appearance, with care taken to introduce character features. Redrow has built a strong reputation based on our heritage, a focus of quality craftsmanship and attention to detail in our interior specification. Our homes meet the needs of modern families. The houses will be energy efficient and feature contemporary kitchen and bathrooms with top name appliances. Each house will have a garden and on plot parking, with additional parking provision for apartments."
O'Neill, added: "I am delighted to be asked to launch one of the regeneration benefits of the Council's Bexley First programme.
"In addition to the 372 new homes that Redrow are building, the council is investing £8.5m on community facilities and expanding the two local schools to serve the residents, old and new, of Slade Green. This joined up venture will help to meet the needs of the community for generations to come."
Ratio is just two minutes' walk from Slade Green Station, with connections to Charing Cross in just 49 minutes. The M25 is just a few minutes drive to the east, offering excellent connections around the south east and beyond. The area is also served by an excellent choice of shops and community facilities, including a choice of local schools.
