Assael towers win planning in Paddington

Westminster City Council has approved plans by Assael Architecture for a mixed-use tower scheme on a former school site in Paddington, London

The development, for Amwaj Property, featrues 335 homes, a hotel, serviced apartments, a free school, business and retail space, and a gym in blocks of up to 20 storeys.

Named North Wharf Gardens, it is the second phase of a £300million masterplan for the 1.48hectare site of the former North Westminster Community School, between North Wharf Road and Harrow Road.

The first phase of the scheme, close to Paddington Basin, features 150 homes and is already under construction.

Assael director Russell Pedley said the project would provide a new residential urban quarter for the area following Tuesday’s decision by Westminster’s Planning Applications Committee.

‘The theme of connectivity prevails across many dimensions of the design to create an outward facing development that responds to and connects with its locality,’ he said.

‘It will establish active physical links with its surroundings and tie into strategic networks for local connectivity and will be a permeable development that highlights routes and pathways through the site into the wider area and beyond.’

Construction on the second phase is expected to start on-site next year.
