The development will see Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation’s former offices at Foundation House revitalised into an exciting new development of one and two-bedroom apartments, designed in keeping with Letchworth’s garden city architectural heritage.

The 100% affordable development benefits from funding from Homes England and North Herts Council, with 31 apartments available for shared ownership and 26 allocated for social rent. The development will feature five apartment buildings, up to four storeys in height, complete with an attractive green space for residents, to relax and enjoy.

John Welch, Chief Executive at First Garden Cities Homes, comments: “First Garden Cities Homes and The Hill Group have a shared commitment to providing good-quality affordable housing for local communities. We are delighted to see work begin on site in what is an important new housing development for Letchworth Garden City and local residents.”

Rob Jack, Regional Director at The Hill Group, comments: “Starting on site at this development marks the beginning of a major new project to bring vital, high-quality, affordable housing to Letchworth Garden City. The Hill Group is proud to continue its ongoing partnership with First Garden Cities Homes on housing delivery, and I’m confident this latest project will result in a high quality and affordable development that not only addresses local housing needs but contributes to the ongoing design legacy of Letchworth Garden City.”

Letchworth Garden City, located in North Hertfordshire, is famous as the world’s first garden city, developed in the early 1900s on the premise of generous green open spaces and high architectural standards. This exciting new development fully adheres to the design principles of the town, incorporating traditional garden city design elements such as classic brickwork, along with all the benefits of a modern home.

Situated just a 15-minute walk from the station and town centre, the development offers convenient access to shops, cafés, and the beautiful art deco Broadway cinema as well as onward transport links. The partners anticipate completion of the project in early 2026.
