Alma Estate Regeneration
2012 - current
PTE working for Countryside Properties and Newlon won this competition to regenerate the 1960s Alma Estate, in Ponders End in the London Borough of Enfield.
The design reintegrates the Alma Estate with the surrounding neighbourhood by creating a clear and legible layout of apartment blocks and family houses with private gardens, the discreet incorporation of car parking; and by creating a new linking road with Scotland Green Road. The proposed scheme will create around 794 new homes.
Kaye Stout, Partner said “PTE have successfully created a design that reintegrates the estate by reinforcing historic routes through the site, and re-establishes traditional streetscapes while adding both tall buildings and private family homes to create a positive sense of place. The regeneration of this post-war housing estate is much needed. Our design creates a place that people will choose to spend time in and be proud to call their own.”
