Development

We pride ourselves on delivering high quality affordable housing and mixed tenure developments that combine good design with sustainability, helping to maintain London's rich diversity, vibrant social and cultural life and its sense of identity and community. 

Octavia develop a wide range of properties in and around central London, including affordable housing for rent and shared ownership, homes for private sale, commercial properties and specialist extra care, sheltered and supported housing developments.

For people to live better, happier lives, they need good homes but in our capital city, the housing market tends towards exclusion rather than inclusion, so a good home remains an unachievable dream for many.

We are committed to increasing the amount of affordable housing in central London and we aim for all our developments to include affordable homes. 

Our new developments achieve high environmental standards and we have developed award-winning Passivhaus projects. Tackling fuel poverty is high on our agenda, so our new developments use energy-efficient design and building techniques to keep energy costs down for residents.

Working in partnership

We have an excellent reputation for working in partnership to produce high quality homes that people want to live in and which add to the vitality of local neighbourhoods.

Our strength lies in the knowledge we have of the locations in which we work, our understanding of local authority requirements and our ability to maximise the value of developments. We have strong relationships with West End developers, land owners and agents, as well as local authorities, community groups, local residents and businesses.  

As the lead member of the Connected Partnership, we work alongside Shepherds Bush Housing Group and Origin Housing to develop homes and deliver an affordable housing programme in north and west London.

Greater London Council (GLA) and Homes and Communities Agency (HCA)

We work closely with the GLA (London area) and the HCA (Outer London) in meeting housing priorities and local needs. Certain development schemes are part funded by these authorities in the relevant areas. As part of our commitment to the Governments Transparency Agenda we develop expenditure over £500 on funded schemes on a quarterly basis.
