A new Co-op convenience retail store reached practical completion in January at Feature 17, as part of the regeneration of the Marlowe Road Estate in Walthamstow.
Developer Countryside, in partnership with Waltham Forest Council, built the store as part of phase 1A of the scheme, which is also providing 103 homes.
The new store is next to the proposed public plaza and play area to be created in phase two of the development, by the end of 2019.
Built to a BREEAM 'very good' standard, the 390sq m store is owned by Waltham Forest Council and will be let to the Co-op.
The newly delivered commercial space will now begin fitting out to the company's brand requirements, before the planned opening of the unit next month.
When fully complete, Feature 17 will provide 436 homes, with 38% earmarked as affordable, including 150 council homes for social rent to replace the outdated existing homes.
