Two projects in the outskirts of London were named as runners up in the MIPIM UK awards, announced last week, behind first choice Get Living London.
First off was London Road, Barking, a 100 flat development being developed by residential landlord Grainger and Aviva. Developed by Bouygues Development, the project includes an Asda supermarket beneath the flats, and is due for completion in the third quarter of 2015.
Also highly regarded by the award judges was Taberner House in Croydon, a 32 storey tower that will provide 230 flats converted specifically for rental. New PRS landlord Essential Living has agreed to forward purchase the project, while is being developed to designs by Make Architects. The block will be built on the former site of the Croydon council offices.
