Waterman support Walthamstow regeneration

Waterman has supported Hill Residential and Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association (ISHA) in it’s successful consent for the re-development of a brownfield site in Walthamstow.

The Arcade, a mixed-use scheme, comprises 1,800m² of mixed A1 and A3 uses, 121 residential flats ranging from one to four beds offering affordable rent and shared ownership, primarily for the benefit of local people and first time buyers as well as a new 1,159 seat cinema. A planned new public open space is also proposed to be created alongside this scheme by the Waltham Forest Council to further boost the council’s commitment to supporting the area.

The regeneration of the Arcade site is expected to bring a large number of direct and indirect employment opportunities for Walthamstow as well as encouraging more visits to the town centre, which will support and enhance existing trade.

The transportation challenges for Waterman were to demonstrate that minimal car parking was required, the scheme being fundamentally ‘car free’ and that alternative modes of travel would be sufficient to support the scheme.
