Crest Nicholson launches new collection of 158 homes at the site of the former Essex Brewery, Walthamstow

Award-winning developer Crest Nicholson has announced the launch of The Essex Brewery, a brand-new collection of 158 one, two and three-bedroom apartments on the former site of the Essex Brewery, Walthamstow. With 95% of the properties available on the government’s popular London Help to Buy scheme, the development is set to welcome its first residents this Autumn.

Situated in the heart of Walthamstow’s vibrant community, The Essex Brewery is the perfect location for first time buyers looking to get their feet on the property ladder in the capital. The apartments feature open-plan kitchen and living areas to enhance the sense of space and provide flexible layouts that are perfect for entertaining guests or unwinding after a busy day. The development is positioned around a new central public promenade, Old Brewery Way, which features retail units, play areas and residential lobbies.  

Conveniently located in London’s Zone 3, residents at The Essex Brewery will have easy access to both Walthamstow underground station and St James Street station -  both of which are within walking distance from the development. Central London can be easily reached with Liverpool Street station accessible in 16 minutes from St James Street. In addition, the area is served by an excellent bus network, providing routes to a range of locations across the city.

This dynamic area of London has plenty of amenities for the local community to enjoy. Walthamstow is also home to a variety of independent coffee shops, boutique shops and family-run restaurants, such as Buhler and Co and The Village. For those looking for access to open space in the capital, nearby Hackney Marshes and the Walthamstow Wetlands provide a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Sean Ruane, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson London, said: “We’re pleased to announce the launch of The Essex Brewery, a collection of new homes in this up-and-coming hotspot of the capital.

“With almost all homes available through the London Help to Buy scheme, The Essex Brewery is perfect for those looking to get onto the property ladder in one of the capital’s trendiest postcodes. Walthamstow has established itself as one of London’s property hotspots in recent years, and these homes are expected to sell quickly.”

Homes at The Essex Brewery start from £379,995 for a one-bedroom apartment. To find out more, call us on 020 3640 7577 or visit
