Barking and Dagenham
Gascoigne Estate (1400 – 1500 new homes)
East Thames and Barking and Dagenham Council are working on a major regeneration project at Gascoigne Estate, Barking. Demolition work is already underway on the first phase of works, which forms part of the council’s Estate Renewal programme.
The homes will be replaced with brand new housing - a mixture of social rent, affordable rent, shared ownership and privately owned homes. Barking and Dagenham Council and East Thames will work together as equal partners throughout the Gascoigne project, sharing the responsibility for funding, design, construction and maintenance.
A full masterplanning exercise is underway, in which members of the public will have a chance to give their views. This will determine how the new homes will look and what exactly will be built on the site
East Village E20 (1,379 units)
East Thames, with its partners Southern Housing Group and developers First Base, formed Triathlon Homes, a consortium that will deliver 1,379 affordable homes in the Olympic Village development in Stratford. This is now known as East Village.
After 2012 the homes will be converted from athletes' accommodation into new homes for East London. This will include affordable rented, intermediate rented, part-buy, part-rent (shared ownership) and shared equity homes with a range of one, two, three and four-bed homes to cater for individuals, couples and families.

Chobham Farm (1,036 units)
Chobham Farm will create a new family neighbourhood and provide more than 1,000 high quality homes, many of which will be 3 bedrooms or more. As well as creating family homes, the scheme will boast an attractive park and commercial/retail space for the local community to enjoy. The new neighbourhood will integrate with the existing communities of Stratford New Town and the communities within the new Olympic neighbourhoods.
57 Broadway (44 units)
Stratford Broadway provides an opportunity to replace a vacant and unattractive office block with a high quality mixed use building at the heart of Stratford Town Centre. The scheme will bring new homes of varying size and tenure, including affordable family and wheelchair accessible dwellings. It will also house a new retail/commercial unit which will provide a hub of activity for the Broadway and contribute to job creation and the local Stratford economy.
Stratford Plaza (22 units)
East Thames at Stratford Plaza will be an eye catching 26 storey building at the heart of Stratford City. It will include 22 shared ownership homes from East Thames. Work has already started and homes will be handed over in phases from October 2015.

Ocean Estate (800 units in total - half affordable)
The East Thames Consortium was appointed in early 2010 to work with Tower Hamlets Council on a £200m regeneration project in Stepney.
More than 800 new homes have been built near Ben Jonson Road and Harford Street as well as near Shandy Park and White Horse Lane. Close to the canal and Mile End Park, the area is well served in terms of transport links and local amenities.
Hammond House (56 units)
This regeneration programme saw 36 run down apartments built in the 1930’s replaced with 56 brand new affordable homes with space standards substantially higher than the conditions currently on the estate.
The homes consist of large family sized three and four bedroom apartments, along with one and two bedroom units and up to five units adapted for wheelchair users. They were available for affordable and social rent, shared ownership and some for outright sale.
New Union Wharf (399 units)
East Thames is busy with a major regeneration project at New Union Wharf. The existing 189 homes will be replaced with approximately 399 homes of mixed tenure.
We offered tenants a unique opportunity to vote for refurbishment or regeneration on the estate; more than 90% of residents voted in the ballot, and it was certainly a close vote, with a slight majority of residents voting in favour of regeneration.
Bromley by Bow North (741 units)
East Thames and Southern Housing Group are working together to regenerate the area from Three Mills Lane up to the Bow Cross roundabout through a phased development of 741 new homes and 10,000 m2 of commercial space. The new homes will be a mixture of social and affordable rent, shared ownership and private sale. Almost 50 per cent of those available for rent and shared ownership will be large, family sized properties of three bedrooms or more. The first phase of 219 homes will start on site in March 2014.

Watermark is made up of 82 mixed tenure units, 59 of which are shared ownership homes, and 23 available for social rent to local residents on the council’s housing waiting list.
Waltham Forest Garages (63 units)
The Waltham Forest Garages project is East Thames Group’s largest development in Waltham Forest following its selection as an Affordable Housing Investment Partner for the borough in 2009.
The project involves the redevelopment of seven garage sites to produce 63 homes for affordable and intermediate rental options. Homes consist of a mix of one and two bedroom flats and three, four and five bedroom houses and maisonettes.
Hammond Court (43 units)
Waltham Forest Council granted planning permission for East Thames to redevelop Hammond Court, a rundown 70s estate that has been a target for anti-social behaviour and misuse.
The approval paved the way for the estate to be transformed in to 43 affordable homes, including large family houses and maisonettes overlooking a secure landscaped courtyard. The scheme is now complete and was officially launched in July 2013.
Grove Farm (104 units)
We have built a range of 1,2 and 3 bedroom flats and 3 and 4 bedroom houses in Redbridge. The scheme is now complete and was officially launched in July 2013.
East Thames is providing 224 new affordable homes on the previously derelict site of the former Harold Wood Hospital. Work on the first phase of affordable homes started on site in March 2012, with completion of the final phase of affordable homes anticipated in 2015. The homes will range from one bedroom apartments to five bedroom houses, with 145 available for shared ownership and the remaining 79 available for affordable rent. 10% of the homes will be built to wheelchair accessible standards and all units will comply with Lifetime Homes standards.
Havering Garages Phase 2 (3 phases- potentially up to 60 homes across several sites)
East Thames is celebrating the completion of three years work transforming disused, derelict garage sites in Havering into 59 family homes. After completing 4 homes as party of a pilot, the first phase delivered 22 homes for social rent. All 59 homes - let by East Thames to residents on Havering council’s waiting list - have been built to high environmental standards and each has its own garden or balcony. In line with housing needs in the borough, the majority of the new properties are family sized, with around 21 four bedroom homes.

Fully completed in June 2013, Dreywood Gardens, located in Havering, Essex is a brand new retirement community designed specifically for residents aged 55 and over.
