A disused industrial estate in Brent will be transformed into 414 new homes after the plans were given the green light by the Council.
Proposals from by NEAT Developments and Royal London Asset Management will see the vacant building on Capitol Way demolished to make way for a range of three-to-nine storey apartments, of which a third will be affordable, and a two-storey commercial building.
Brent Council have approved the plans, that will also see basement car parking and cycle storage for the flats contained within landscaped courtyards at ground floor level. The new commercial hub will provide office space for SMEs based in the borough.
Joe Crawley, managing director of NEAT, said: “In its current state, the site offers little benefit to the local area, whereas our development will bring well designed homes and generous amenity spaces, in addition to the exciting commercial space for new and growing companies.”
Drew Watkins, senior fund manager at RLAM added that “the optimum management of existing assets will have a clear positive impact on the local community and will also go some way to solving London’s housing shortage.”
