STAN­HOPE has won the Best Ur­ban Re­gen­er­a­tion Project cat­e­gory at the First Time Buyer Read­ers’ Awards. The Stan­hope es­tate, which is un­der­go­ing a £150 mil­lion re­gen­er­a­tion scheme, beat three other nom­i­nees to take the award. By 2012 the project will see the re­fur­bish­ment of 323 homes and the re­place­ment of seven blocks of flats with 442 new homes – 70 per cent avail­able for rent or shared own­er­ship. Mike Baker, op­er­a­tions man­ager for the Chrysalis con­sor­tium, a group of three com­pa­nies over­see­ing the project, said: “We are de­lighted to win this award and raise the pro­file of what is a truly out­stand­ing ur­ban re­gen­er­a­tion project. To­gether with res­i­dents, we are mak­ing great progress at Stan­hope.”
