The story so far

The transformation of Walthamstow Central Station has already delivered 69 new homes, of which 50% were affordable. It has also delivered a new Travelodge hotel and retail units, helping to create 150 jobs.

We also provided station improvements which we will finalise in the next chapter, including:

  • A new station square

  • A new pedestrian link to Queen's Road Station

  • New lighting, landscaping and surfacing to make the area safer

Our vision is to reimagine the way that railway land is used, so that stations can become exciting new destinations that offer much more to local communities.

We were proud therefore, when the majority of our residential purchasers were local to Walthamstow and also that more than half of the 150 jobs we created went to people from the area.

Our success at Waltamstow was recognised in 2014 when the scheme was awarded What House? Gold Award for Best Partnership scheme.
