Norba Court and Trajan Court  Norba Court and Trajan Court

Gateway Housing is proud to announce the handover of the former Appian Court site, which now comprises two new buildings, Norba Court and Trajan Court. The new development brings 60 affordable new homes to Bow, East London. The homes are a mix of sizes ranging from 1 to 2 beds, Norba Court comprises 46 homes and will all be made available via London Affordable Rent, whilst Trajan Court will be available through shared ownership.

The homes have been built with close attention to design principles that support an ageing population, enabling residents to live more independently in their homes and communities. That’s why we have worked with our architect (Hunters), builder (Hill Partnership), EA (Airey Miller), Quality Inspectors (Rund Partnership) and the University of Stirling’s (Dementia Development Services Centre) to include design principles that would do just that.


Becky Utuka, Director of Development and Sales at Gateway Housing Association, said, “Norba Court and Trajan Court is another great example of the high-quality standard of affordable homes that Gateway Housing is building in the London Borough Tower Hamlets and neighbouring boroughs. We’re proud that we’ve helped make a difference to residents by providing these 60 affordable homes in Bow. But we’re not just about building quality homes; we’re committed to providing the most needed types of homes in the community. I want to thank everyone involved in this great achievement, particularly the Greater London Authority (GLA), who provided the funding under their ‘Homes for Londoners’ programme. We couldn’t have achieved this without their support.”
