Dalston Square Site Visit

In the second of three site visits in association with Barratt Homes, we’ll be exploring Dalston Square in LB Hackney, on Thursday 26 July, 9.30 – 11.30 am.

Dalston Square received planning permission in 2006, and now new transport infrastructure, private investment and public amenities are transforming this vibrant part of East London. The regeneration of Dalston is delivered through two construction projects, linked by a new public square:

• Dalston Lane South is providing more homes, shops and a new library and archive.
• Transport for London has built Dalston Junction station, served by the East London line and offering connections south to Crystal Palace and West Croydon.

Dalston Lane South is now fully occupied. Construction on Phase 2, Dalston Junction North started in July 2010 and occupations began in December 2011. Construction on the third and final phase began in August 2011 and is due to be completed by summer 2013.

Overall, the development is offering 553 new homes, including affordable. These homes will incorporate energy efficient measures, such as green roofs and combined heat and power.
