The new apartment building brings 28 high-quality and much-needed new homes with seven one-bed and 21 two-bedroom flats for people on the district’s housing register. Apartments have a contemporary finish with modern fixtures and fittings and with carpet, flooring and blinds fitted throughout.
Reflecting the town’s heritage, Hawking’s House is named after Stephen Hawking who spent some of his school days in St Albans.
This development of high-quality new homes for local people who are unable to buy or rent at market rate demonstrates our commitment to working in partnership with local authorities. St Albans City & District Council transferred ownership of the site to us in 2017 as the sheltered housing building on the land at that time had reached the end of its life.
