Countryside Properties is set to start marketing homes at its redevelopment of Upper Edmonton's Highmead estate in spring next year, the developer has revealed.

It is currently completing piling work at the Fore Street site, which is being regenerated in partnership with Newlon Housing Trust and Enfield Council.

The Hawkins Brown Architects-designed development will provide 118 homes, 1,000 sq m of commercial floorspace, a 500 sq m health centre, and a new community building.

Countryside development director Jim Dodd said this week that the firm was already taking expressions of interest in the development’s 71 private-sale apartments and would begin formal marketing in the first half of 2014.

“We’re looking to get to marketing in May next year, and we’ll be complete on site in July or August 2015,” he said.

As well as the scheme’s striking apartment block, dubbed Silver Point, the Highmead regeneration includes townhouses, all of which will be part of the “affordable” element of the scheme managed by Newlon.
