Regal to build £55m Lords retirement homes block


November 16, 2018 – Central & Cecil Housing Trust has awarded Regal London the £55m contract to build a retirement home block next to Lords Cricket Ground in London.

The firm will demolish the existing low rise Dora House block in St John’s Wood and construct 156 homes catering exclusively for senior living.

Part of the site has been sold for a 10-storey private block of 43 luxury flats to help fund the 12-floor retirement homes block.

The scheme has been designed by architects Ryder Architecture and MAKE.

Planning consultant Montagu Evans advised on the scheme and the disposal of part of the site, which will be used to build 44 private apartments – the revenue from this will fund the construction of the new Dora House

Daniela Adamo, Head of Development at C&C, said: “Dora House is a 1960s sheltered housing scheme that is no longer fit for purpose in terms of accessibility and modern space standards.

“This redevelopment project has given C&C the opportunity to implement its own innovative and specialist approach to designing older people’s accommodation that provides a home for life.”
