Haggerston is a major regeneration project which we are delivering in partnership with leading London housing association L&Q. Working closely with local people and the local authority, we are working to replace substandard housing with high-quality homes to meet the needs of the whole community.


The Haggerston West and Kingsland estates have long been in need of investment and regeneration, with residents of the east London neighbourhood having campaigned for improvements to revitalise their community for many years.

Through the Haggerston project we are fulfilling these aspirations by replacing 480 poor quality flats with a total of 761 new homes, including a mixture of private and affordable apartments and family homes.

The development is taking shape on a phased basis to create a vibrant new community which is transforming the identity of the area. Alongside the new homes we are also providing a multi-storey community centre and retail space to encourage social integration and promote sustainability.


The Haggerston regeneration scheme is being delivered jointly by Taylor Wimpey and London and Quadrant Housing (L&Q). The proposals have been developed in close consultation with central government and the London Borough of Hackney, who are providing gap funding to help finance the development.


Haggerston is being developed with a phased programme of construction and demolition in order to minimise the impact on the lives of residents of the existing estate.

We have consulted with the local community in the preparation of the development proposals to ensure that the scheme meets the aspirations of those who live in the area and provides the new homes and facilities which they need.

The development will see the whole estate of 480 flats replaced in two phases, rebuilding the affordable properties and providing new shared ownership homes and properties for private sale to create a total of 761 houses and apartments.

All secure tenants have the option to return to the redeveloped estate if they wish, while residential leaseholders are given a choice of options including the chance to purchase a share of a new home at Haggerston.

Design and sustainability

The Haggerston development has been designed to provide a wide range of housing options to suit the requirements of the whole community.

The new homes include a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom houses, with 55% of the properties provided as affordable housing and 33% family homes together with a multi-storey community centre and retail space.

Located on either side of Regent’s Canal, the design of the Haggerston scheme focuses on improving safety and security, creating public open spaces and community facilities, and delivering improved car parking facilities to meet the needs and aspirations of residents.
