The award-wining Grand Regent Tower

Grand Regent Tower, in our Suttons Wharf development, was completed in June 2014 and the 81 apartments have been sold on the open market to generate surplus and reinvest in the homes and services we provide.

The team has worked hard to make Grand Regent Tower a great place to live as well as using incentives to encourage owner occupiers.

Genevieve Phillips, Head of Shared Ownership and Resales at Guinness, commented,

“One of the judges was David Orr, Chief Executive of The National Housing Federation, so we’re very excited and proud to have won.”
