HUB is set to develop two further residential schemes in Wembley, after exchanging on two Network Rail development sites next to the developer’s under construction Chesterfield House scheme.
The sites, on the eastern fringe of Wembley High Road form part of the Wembley Housing Zone. The schemes will be developed over two phases, with the potential to deliver up to 300 homes in total, with a mix of for sale apartments, build to rent and affordable homes.
HUB has appointed Glenn Howells Architects to draw up plans for the first phase, which will comprise around 200 homes across two buildings with a development value of around £100m.
HUB, in partnership with specialist sustainable and social impact investor Bridges Fund Management, says it is working closely with the London Borough of Brent on the proposals to ensure a coherent development of the Wembley Housing Zone and will seek to bring forward a planning application in the summer following an extensive programme of consultation and community engagement.
HUB managing director Steve Sanham said: “We are very pleased to have secured these two additional sites in Wembley and are looking forward to delivering more high quality, aspirational yet attainable, homes – the types of homes that London desperately needs. Our Chesterfield House scheme is progressing at pace and we are very happy to be able to continue our involvement in the revitalisation of Wembley High Road.”
The Wembley High Road sites are adjacent to HUB’s Chesterfield House development, (pictured top) which is currently under construction and will deliver 239 apartments for rent, at a range of different rental levels and discounts. It will also include a new community centre, and public realm creating a gateway to the redeveloped Network Rail land.
Designed by Maccreanor Lavington, Chesterfield House includes a range of one-, two- and three-bed apartments spread across the two towers of 26 and 21 storeys. A lower-level plinth creates a C-shape, allowing a new public space to be provided in the heart of Wembley.
