The Quarry lands first time buyer gong

The Quarry, an ambitious joint venture eco-development between Anderson and L&Q, picked up the award for Best Family Home at the First Time Buyer Awards 2019 at London’s Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square last night (26 April).

Having already landed gold earlier this year in the Regeneration Project of the Year category at the 2018 London Construction Awards, the mixed-use development in the heart of Bexley won gold in the section that recognises excellence in family starter homes that should provide a comfortable environment at a realistic price that’s ideal for family living.

Set within stunning retained ecological areas and newly provided open space, The Quarry will breathe new life into the site of a former quarry in Erith, Bexley, which has lain neglected for the past 30 years.

Designed by multi-award winning architects Studio Egret West, the development will consist of 600 eco-friendly homes, as well as a state-of-the-art, three-form-entry primary school.

The majority of the contemporary homes at The Quarry are specifically aimed at families, with the unique mix of high-quality housing inspiring a true community feel. Competitively priced, all homes are available through either shared ownership or London Help to Buy, making them ideal for first time buyers.

Sean Emmett, Group Development Director at Anderson, was notably pleased with the night’s outcome, “The project team responsible for taking this site from concept to completion continue to see their hard work rewarded and that is absolutely brilliant to see.

“Our joint venture with L&Q is one of our most valued partnerships and our joint ethos of delivering communities wherever we operate is just typified in this award.”
