Telford Homes has received more awards this week with the preservation and restoration of Balfron Tower, the Erno Goldfinger masterpiece in East London receiving its first award and Bow Garden Square winning its sixth major award this year!
With our joint venture partners Londonewcastle and Poplar HARCA, Balfron Tower in Poplar took the Conversion/ Refurbishment Project of the Year prize at the Premier Guarantee Awards. The judges said, “This iconic building is steeped in history and the work of the original has been equalled by a thoughtful and sensitive transformation."
At last night’s Housebuilder Awards, Bow Garden Square emerged victorious amongst eight shortlisted schemes to win the Best Regenerative Initiative with our partners Poplar HARCA. This is the sixth major award that it has received so far this year making it our most garlanded scheme since Vibe in Dalston.
Bow Garden Square provides 109 mixed-tenure homes, a brand new primary school and nursery, a sports hall/community centre and a mosque on a 2.38 acre site in East London. It has been designed by renowned architects Pollard Thomas Edwards. Bow Garden Square, which was completed and sold out earlier in 2019, has received the ‘Development of the Year’ accolade at the RESI Awards 2019 and ‘Best Regeneration’ at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2019, amongst many others!
Half a century after its construction, Balfron Tower has a new lease of life thanks to a full restoration and refurbishment to bring it up to exacting modern standards. As a Grade II* listed building, every design detail has been carefully considered, as has the need to develop the elaborate and innovative arrangement of the 146 apartments. One of London’s most prominent post-war residential buildings, the new Balfron Tower retains a strong commitment to the local community, continuing Erno Goldfinger’s acclaimed legacy.
