Quintain’s 85-acre Wembley Park scheme is poised to enter its second phase of development, with planning permission granted last night by LB Brent for 475 new homes.
The development was designed by Grid Architects and will consist of a series of seven
buildings of various heights arranged around an acre of private gardens. It will be
within five minutes’ walk of both Wembley Park tube station and the new London
Designer Outlet, which opened in October offering 70 shops, 15 restaurants and a 9
Maxwell James, Chief Executive of Quintain, commented: “With a century of history as a leisure destination, two iconic world-class entertainment venues, London’s only designer outlet and Bond Street within 20 minutes by Tube, this new development at Wembley Park will be unique in London and highly attractive to those seeking a great place to live.”
The development is targeted at buyers from the mid and upper mainstream brackets, which, say Quintain, are the most undersupplied sectors of the London housing market. 416 of the apartments are planned as one or two bedroom homes.
Quintain holds outline consent for 8.5m sq ft of development at Wembley Park, which surrounds Wembley Stadium and incudes Wembley Arena. 1.8 million sq ft of development has been completed to date, including the opening of a four star Hilton Hotel in 2012, Brent Council’s new Civic Centre, and the London Designer Outlet earlier this year.
Construction of the new development is anticipated to begin next summer, with the first homes being completed in 2016.
