The regeneration of the wider Warwick Bar site will have a transformational impact on central Birmingham and the wider economy, bringing around 1,000 new homes and around 270,000 square feet of employment or education space.
Speeding up delivery of one of London’s biggest regeneration projects.
With a £100million infrastructure loan, Homes England is bringing forward the completion date of one of London’s biggest regeneration projects by three years.
Canada Water will be London’s first new city center in 50 years: a truly multi-use new urban centre, built for the future.
Over the next twelve years, the 53-acre master plan will provide a new main street and public plaza, up to 3,000 new net-zero carbon homes, 2 million square feet of workspace that can accommodate 20,000 workers , a range of other public amenities and an additional 16 acres of parks and places to break and relax.
The £100m loan from Homes England is helping British Land fund new transport infrastructure, affordable housing, the town center and the sustainability strategy.
Boost lending for SMEs looking to build sustainable homes.
Alongside Octopus Real Estate, Homes England has launched the Greener Homes Alliance, a new £175m lending alliance.
The Alliance will provide loan finance and expert support to SME homebuilders, enabling them to build more high-quality, energy-efficient homes across England.
Homes financed must meet a minimum level of sustainability and will receive increased margin reductions on interest rates as home energy efficiency increases beyond this level.
This new partnership, the latest in a series of impactful lending alliances, will give small homebuilders both the financing and the knowledge to build more sustainable homes.
Support new investments in affordable housing.
Long-term institutional investment in affordable housing can help meet the needs of communities across the country.
Homes England recently invested £20m in Man Global Private Markets’ (GPM) new community housing fund.
The investment is part of a wider fundraising exercise by Man to set up a £400m fund to deliver 3,000 new affordable homes by 2026.
Additionally, we recently agreed a £10 million investment with M&G to support the launch of their shared ownership fund.
Homes England’s investment will help accelerate the delivery of 2,000 affordable homes through M&G’s new for-profit registered provider. Initially working in partnership with The Hyde Group, the fund can offer affordable housing providers capital to build new homes.
Homes England’s commitment to the fund is a strong signal that the government sees significant opportunities for national and international institutional capital to support the provision of new affordable housing.
