Harrow One will include 119 new homes for private sale across two buildings, an internal courtyard and a community hub for residents and locals.
It is being built on the former Cumberland Hotel site at 1-3 St John’s Road close to Harrow on the Hill town centre.
The buildings wrap around a landscaped courtyard garden and will also have modern, energy saving features such as photovoltaic panels on the roofs, with efficient communal heating plants serving each of the apartments.
Hill say Harrow One’s location provides residents with city living with access to plenty of green space and sports facilities, as well as a bustling high street and an array of boutique shops, cafes, pubs, and restaurants. The Metropolitan line at Harrow-on-the-Hill station and Harrow Bus Station provide quick local links and connections to Central London.
The newly built Victoria Hall, a community hub annexing both buildings, will also provide a space to bring residents to get together.
Hill are delivering the new homes in partnership with housing association Origin, their second joint venture in Harrow. This £70 million development is part funded by the GLA, which has committed £25 million from the Mayor of London’s £600 million Housing Zones initiative, and will support and benefit from the vast regeneration programme in the borough that will continue to enhance the quality of life in the town centre and surrounding areas. This includes a £1.75 billion investment project, which will see new homes, two new schools and 3,000 additional jobs created in Harrow by 2026.
Rebecca Littler, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Hill, comments: “Harrow One is the latest exciting chapter being delivered by Hill and Origin, creating new homes and a new focus in the heart of the town. Harrow has already been transformed by the borough’s regeneration programme, with new public spaces, shops, restaurants and a popular high street. One fifth of the borough is dedicated to green spaces, which also makes Harrow a very appealing place to live, with the advantage of excellent transport connections to central London. People buying a home at Harrow One will benefit from the continued investment by the council in jobs and new facilities such as schools, along with the superb higher educational facilities on offer.”
Simon Scott, Assistant Director, Commercial and Property Marketing for Origin Housing, comments: “Harrow One represents a continuation of our effective partnership with Hill, delivering fantastic homes and public facilities. We are pleased to be able to offer more much needed shared ownership homes in the London Borough of Harrow – an area we have long had a strong connection with as an organisation.”
