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. The Southside blocks include Bramfield, Therfield, Datchworth and Weston Courts. 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 from Hackney and Source Partnership.

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

  • Sign-off of the contract should happen in October 2021 after the tender process and the negotiation
  • The refurbishment works to the Southside blocks should start early/mid 2022 and complete early 2023
  • Entire project including the next new builds should be complete by Summer 2024

Please be aware this is a rough projection and timelines can slip! The photos below show an outline of the plans.
