Packington in Islington was awarded Development of the Year at the Daily Telegraph British Homes Awards 2011 held on Thursday 22 September at The London Marriott Hotel.
Packington, designed by PTE marks the start of a housing estate’s transformation into a mixed-use neighbourhood with green space and family homes. The major regeneration is led by the Hyde Group in partnership with Rydon Construction. Over eight years Hyde is creating 819 homes as well as commercial premises that will form a mixed tenure neighbourhood with its own retail, community and youth facilities. The community has been involved in the scheme since its inception, with residents voting overwhelmingly in favour of the regeneration proposals and helping in every stage of the design process.
Simon Chatfield, Director of Major Developments, said “We are proud that the award recognises Packington’s achievements in regenerating the community with high quality architecture designed with input from local residents.”
