Regeneration Updates

Kings Crescent is in the middle of a massive regneration. The Northside older blocks were refurbished and new blocks were completed in 2017 and we are now heading into phases 3 & 4.

The Southside blocks are due to be refurbished with new entrances, balconies etc, plus there will be another phase of building new blocks and a central communal space. You can see the latest updates here: https://kingscrescent.org/2020/06/22/regeneration-update-june-2020/

You can also join the ‘Kings Crescent Estate regeneration’ Facebook group to see updates.

Projected timeline for refurbishment of Southside blocks and building of new blocks:

  • Sign-off of the contract should happen in March 2021 after the tender process and the negotiation
  • The refurbishment works should start in October 2021 and complete around Oct 2022
  • Entire project including new builds should be complete by Summer 2024

Please be aware this is a rough projection and timelines can slip!
