Oaklands Rise – best medium development

This award will go to a 31-80 home development that has used the best design and quality to create an affordable, desirable and inspirational environment, and that has provided additional benefits to the local community and surrounding neighbourhoods.

The first major regeneration project at Old Oak Common, Oaklands Rise is one of North West London’s most exciting new developments for first-time buyers.

This collection of 60 Shared Ownership apartments is set within the 605-home development and has been designed with first-time buyers in mind.  Open-plan kitchen and living areas, and spacious balconies and terraces create flexible spaces, while residents enjoy exclusive access to sought-after amenities including a concierge, residents’ lounge, work hub and green spaces. 

With a community developing on site already, Oaklands Rise is an important piece of the growing neighbourhood, providing vital new amenities including a planned nursery, medical centre and community hub, and active transport routes to strengthen the area’s increasing connectivity.
