Avanti to 'lift' London's run-down Kilburn

Avanti Architects has received the thumbs-up for the £15 million regeneration and redevelopment of part of north London's run-down Kilburn High Road.

The mixed-use scheme, for developer Sandpiper Securities, involves the complete overhaul of Kilburn Square - a down-at-heel 1960s shopping precinct - and the creation of a new public square.

The site lies midway along the bustling Kilburn High Road. Quieter residential areas will cluster around a medium-sized landscaped urban square to the west of site.

A spokesperson from Avanti described the existing site as 'unattractive' and claimed that its scheme, which also includes 14 residential units on the upper floors of the refurbished shopping precinct, would 'lift' the area.

She added that the work is expected to start on site towards the end of this year with construction scheduled to take 18 months.
