Award for DMA housing scheme at St Bernard's
....for Best Large Development award at the First Time Buyers Awards
As part of master planning a sensitive site to release value for reinvestment, that afforded other work on the site, including DMA's Thames Lodge (the MSU), St Bernard's Gate is a mixed tenure development that provides a high proportion of new affordable housing on brownfield land.
Designed up to planning by David Morley Architects and built by Catalyst, a leading housing association based in Ealing, the scheme makes innovative use of existing historic listed buildings to find new uses to create a buzzing new neighbourhood that mixes modern housing with the area's unique heritage.
Once complete, the St Bernard's Gate development will deliver 270 new homes, consisting of 130 market sale, 98 shared ownership, 22 social rent and 20 at the new London living Rent, giving potential first time buyers an opportunity to save for a deposit and make their first step on the housing ladder at a later date.
