Awards streak continues as Anderson joint venture wins at First Time Buyer’s Awards

Continuing on from the success of The Quarry in the “Regeneration Project of the Year” category at the London Construction Awards in 2018, the mixed-use development in the heart of Bexley has come away with the First Time Buyer’s Award for Best Family Home at the awards held just a couple of weeks ago.

The ceremony is a celebration of some of the many successes from across the industry, supporting first time buyers on to the property ladder. This year’s event took place at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square and was hosted by television presenter Jonnie Irwin.

Set within stunning retained ecological areas and newly provided open space, The Quarry, a joint venture eco-development by L&Q and The Anderson Group, 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; when complete, the development will consist of 600 eco-friendly homes, as well as a state-of-the-art, three-form-entry primary school – using the steep gradient and unique topography of the site to create a truly exceptional scheme in south east London.

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: “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.”
