Solar Serena Sunrise regeneration artist impression

The development at the former Solar Serena Sunrise sheltered scheme will create 175 high-quality new homes in a retirement community village for the over 55’s.

The village sits on the edge of the Green Flag-winning Harrow Lodge Park, which benefits from lakes, reservoirs, wildlife and open green spaces.

The new homes are also a short walk to Hornchurch Town Centre, home to popular shops, cafes and restaurants.

Did you know?

The colour scheme is designed according to a ‘sunrise’ theme, after the name of the road, Sunrise Avenue.

There will be new homes available as ‘shared ownership’ for the over 55’s, as well as new council properties to rent from Autumn 2023.

The project will create 22 local jobs and provide 1,148 apprenticeship training weeks on site.

39 local people will be supported through qualifications as a result of this project.

“I'm keen to return to the retirement village. I really liked it there to start with and can't wait to move back!”
