Bow River Village – WhatHouse? Award Winner


We are delighted to announce that Bow River Village, our latest Shared Ownership development in East London, has received a Bronze Award at the 2018 WhatHouse? Awards.


Commonly known as the 'oscars' of the UK housebuilding industry, the WhatHouse? Awards is the largest event celebrating the very best new homes. Now in its 37thyear, the event takes place on an annual basis and attracts all of the major UK housebuilders.


Bow River Village received a Bronze Award within the highly competitive “Best Starter Home Scheme” category. The judges remarked that “Bow River Village sells a standard of living that is the stuff of fantasy for many first-time buyers. Set along the banks of one of London’s historic waterways, this emerging riverside quarter offers an easy commute and a prime location overlooking the River Lea”.


Furthermore, the WhatHouse? panel added that “Southern Housing Group has transformed a blot on the riverside into a thriving new village”.  


In addition to the judge’s comments, Bow River Village is situated in close proximity  to many great local attractions, such as the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park, Westfield Stratford and the micro-breweries of Hackney Wick. 


If you want to see this award winning development in person, viewings at Bow River Village are conveniently held every Thursday evening and on Saturday and Sunday – perfect if you can’t get out of work during the working week.
