A modern development of 22 apartments and mews houses, located on the edge of vibrant St James Street and in close proximity to Walthamstow Wetlands.

Now completed, 57 Blackhorse Road was one of the first schemes to be delivered in the Blackhorse Lane regeneration area and was a leading example of community-engaging development having secured two years funding for a local community centre, providing a platform for a local artist to design parts of the scheme and seamlessly integrated design of the bicycle facilities to the newly created Mini-Holland cycle routes.
