Project Details

81-91 High Street Preston
Lord Mayors Charitable Foundation, Northern Community Church CareWorks, Fieldwork Architects

In late 2020 Northern Community CareWorks in partnership with Property Collectives received an Affordable Housing Challenge grant from the Lord Mayors Charitable Foundation (LMCF).

The grant allowed us to conduct a feasibility study on Northern Community’s “Northern Village” vision for their 81-91 High St Preston premise, exploring options to deliver a 100% affordable housing project of circa 80 apartments while revamping the ground plane for the Church’s social mission activites.

Our challenge was to arrive identify a sustainable model to deliver as much affordable housing as possible, while providing new facilities and some residual income for Northern Community CareWorks to underpin their critical community focused social mission activities. These activities are targeted to provide relief and assistance to people in need, focusing on at risk and/or disdvantaged members of the community.

We are now working with Northern to form a joint venture with a Community Housing Provider to deliver the project.
