Briggs and Forrester’s Living team are to start the building services work contract on the latest phase of Quintain’s Wembley Park development, plot E05, in the Eastern Quarter.
E05 is part of Quintain’s ongoing 85-acre Wembley Park project, which will provide space for education, retail, leisure uses, 633,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, public realm improvements and 8,000 homes. The works are planned for completion in spring 2021 as part of main contractor, Sisk’s, programme.
Once complete, Wembley Park will become the largest single site of build to rent homes in the UK, all managed by Tipi, Quintain’s wholly-owned lifestyle focussed rental brand.
The E05 development comprises three tower blocks containing 458 private rental apartments. These will range between 10 and 21 storeys high, providing a landmark entrance to Wembley Park from the east.
Residents will enjoy over 83,000 sq ft of amenity space in the form of podium level private communal landscaped gardens, roof terraces and a resident’s lounge, and each apartment benefits from a balcony or terrace for private open space. The shared spaces are designed to be laid back yet fun and social. Features include a sofa the length of the building, a coffee bar, a slide, shared kitchens and dining areas, private work pods and sun terraces.
The buildings have been influenced by the other plots in the ‘Eastern Quarter’, such as the seven building Canada Gardens development, to form a cohesive design across the area. The E05 development will complete the ‘Eastern Quarter’ of the Wembley Park Masterplan, which surrounds part of the new seven-acre park, which completes in phases between December 2020 and March 2021 and is a focal point of the eastern approach to Wembley Park and the Stadium.
