Avanton's planned development along Old Kent Road, named The Ruby, represents a significant stride toward affordable housing, allocating over 40% of its units as affordable amidst the Old Kent Road Opportunity Area's potential to introduce over 20,000 new homes. This initiative marks a first in the area, showing a strong commitment to inclusivity and community-oriented development. The Ruby isn't just about living spaces; it's a comprehensive reimagining of the site encompassing 1,152 new homes distributed across five buildings. Beyond residential quarters, the development introduces a suite of amenities and communal facilities aimed at fostering a vibrant community. These include a new community sports hall and fitness centre, extensive open spaces with a public park at the heart of the development, and flexible commercial zones designed to support local entrepreneurs with incubator workspaces and studios.

Retaining two existing buildings on Old Kent Road, the scheme is set to enhance the local streetscape by providing active frontages for local businesses, thereby enriching the neighbourhood's economic and social fabric. Avanton's approach to the Old Kent Road project underlines a vision that diverges from the conventional, placing a heavy emphasis on public realm and green space, thus ensuring the development serves as a communal nexus rather than merely a residential complex.

Pedestrian prioritisation is a key theme, with the provision of car parking limited to disabled bays. This initiative is complemented by an innovative car club and an integrated scheme with Enterprise Rent-A-Car to encourage sustainable and shared transportation options. Additionally, the development caters to cyclists by including ample cycle storage, alongside a social hub dedicated to repair and maintenance, promoting active and environmentally friendly modes of transport.

In summary, The Ruby by Avanton on Old Kent Road is poised to be a groundbreaking development that not only increases the stock of affordable housing but also meticulously integrates community facilities, green spaces, and sustainable transportation options into its master plan, paving the way for a future where developments are just as much about creating communities as they are about building homes.
