Rooftop Developments

Gracewood Construction has been delivering quality homes for more than 20 years.

Building to specification, regardless of project size, Gracewood Construction undertakes a range of rooftop developments backed by leading architects and designers, creating attractive homes built to last. Care is taken to specify building materials and architecture that reflect and enhance the local area.

Our rooftop developments typically include works to upgrade and refurbish existing dwellings including new lifts servicing all floors, updated communal areas, external landscaping and play space, new access control, and security. Legacy concrete repairs and structural upgrades can also be incorporated into the same package of works providing a new lease of life to the building and community. The development can also assist in making buildings more sustainable by adding or upgrading insulation, windows, doors, and new heating systems.

Gracewood’s expert method of rooftop development ensures there is no decanting of existing tenants required, with additional homes delivered in existing established communities in popular, well-connected locations.

As part of the project, Gracewood Group will make significant improvements to communal areas and provide landscaping and play spaces to enhance the public realm, including upgrades to play equipment, as well as creating 251 new cycle parking spaces.

Mile End – Rooftop Development & Regeneration

Our latest development ‘Mile End – Rooftop Development & Regeneration’ with our RSL partner will see the Eric and Treby Estates be regenerated with 142 new homes. The studio and one, two and three-bedroom homes will sit two-storeys high, atop five existing low rise apartment blocks, with a further 11 apartments being developed in a former garage space.


Scimitar House offers a selection of studio, one and two-bed apartments in Romford.

Former office space converted to 89 residential apartments, Scimitar House epitomises the prime investment opportunities opened up via Crossrail, which in Romford’s case are plentiful.

Rising house prices are not the only benefit expected in Romford, Essex, with the arrival of Crossrail. The £15 billion east-west railway will take over the existing Shenfield to Liverpool Street line and extend it through central London.

The local council has seized the opportunity that the line will bring by adopting a new plan for the town centre that will see a vibrant, mixed neighbourhood built around the train station.

Sotheby lodge

The six-story residential development Sotheby Lodge sits at the entrance to Victoria Park in Bethnal Green, a popular east London location offering leafy outside space with great travel connections.

The development includes 40 units comprising 27 private and 13 affordable homes. The project was completed by Gracewood Construction. Gracewood Group manages several private units for its PRS portfolio.


Charter House, 450 High Road is a collection of 104 apartments in Ilford.

Charter House is part of the massive regeneration set to transform this part of East London, spurred by the launch of Crossrail’s Elizabeth Line. As East London rooftop specialists, we are incredibly proud to be part of this area of the capital’s renaissance.

A collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments providing 104 homes in total, 450 High Road is an incredible opportunity to capitalise on the transformative effect of the Elizabeth Line, set to slash commute times across the capital and rejuvenate great swathes of East London.
