Demolition on Holly Street JLP01_11_60531_02
Holly Street Estate, Dalston, Hackney, Greater London. A view of tower blocks on the Holly Street Estate, showing a cloud of dust caused by the demolition of Rowan Court at the centre of the group.
Laing Homes Special Projects worked in partnership with Hackney Council and a consortium of housing associations to redevelop the estate which had originally been built in the 1970s. The aim of the project was to provide over 1000 new and refurbished homes over a 6 year period, following traditional street patterns and providing gardens for residents. This photograph is part of a batch taken to show the demolition of Rowan Court which took place on 24th March 1996
