The Collaborative Care Centre in Bloemfontein Road, designed by Richard Rogers, will have GPs and community health teams working alongside social services to offer connected local care when it opens in 2014. It also contains 170 new affordable homes for shared ownership or discount market sale, a supermarket and pharmacy, and a new entrance through the building to Wormholt Park.

The topping out ceremony (pictured) was held at the end of February.

Cllr Nicholas Botterill, H&F Council leader, said: “The construction of this new building represents a significant step towards our shared vision of a brighter future for people in the north of our borough.

“Raising the proportion of affordable housing from 40% to 100% – the result of discussions between the council and Notting Hill Housing Group Trust – is unprecedented, and represents our commitment to enabling more local people to buy a home.

“Finally, the new entrance to Wormholt Park will reunite local people with an important public space that has for many years been out of view to those living on the White City estate.”
