Barratt London opens the doors to its latest Lewisham-based development at one of the busiest launches of the year
Catford Green is the latest exciting development to launch in the Barratt London portfolio. Catford is playing a key part in the multi-million pound Mayor of London’s London Plan. Situated in Zone 3 the 11.6 acre site is made up of 588 one, two and three-bedroom apartments divided over thirteen buildings. There are two mainline railways stations on either side of the main entrance to the development - Catford and Catford Bridge - meaning that residents will be able to connect to Charing Cross in just 20 minutes as well as other key, central London stations.
One of the outstanding features of Catford Green is how the development opens up the 54 acres of Ladywell Fields to residents. With carefully landscaped open community spaces between each building, plus play areas and a rejuvenated riverside, Catford Green will be a fabulous place to live. First completions are planned for summer 2015.
Regional Sales Director at Barratt London, Gary Patrick, comments: “Our Catford Green development is part of a wider regeneration programme of work taking place in the area, which is set to dramatically improve the facilities and amenities available to local residents.”
The redevelopment of the Catford Stadium site will create more than a thousand jobs and provide 588 new homes to the area. When finished, this will include 173 shared ownership and affordable rent properties. Barratt London and affordable housing partner Peabody Trust have worked with the London Borough of Lewisham to agree the affordable housing criteria. Completions will begin in the spring of 2015 and the entire development is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2018.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said "This will be wonderful for Catford, it will be a wonderful place to live, with amazing transport links, there will be lots of affordable homes." Read about the Mayor of London's visit to Catford Green back in July.
Prices started at £218,000 for a one-bedroom apartment at the launch event.
