Levitt Bernstein unveils affordable housing in Brent
[FIRST LOOK] Levitt Bernstein has completed these homes for the Brent Housing Partnership as part of south Kilburn’s re-generation
Officially opened yesterday (3 November), the £19 million Granville New Homes development in North London houses 110 new properties – 85 affordable homes and 25 for ‘intermediate’ renting.
According to the Brent Housing Partnership, the homes boast ‘generous space standards, communal landscape gardens and water and refuse recycling’.
‘Like most winning schemes of design competitions, Granville New Homes is distinctive, creative and bristling with innovations,’ said Matthew Goulcher of Levitt Bernstein architects.
‘From the beginning, these homes were supported and endorsed by client and future residents, there is every chance the scheme will stand the test of time and be the foundation of the new sustainable neighbourhood that is to be built around it,’ said Goulcher.
‘We aim to provide high quality homes and services to both our own tenants and those in the Brent Council homes we manage. Granville New Homes is our first major acquisition and sets a high standard for the future,’ said Helen Evans of Brent Housing Partnership.
Brent Housing Partnership – responsible for managing 13,000 council properties in the London Borough of Brent – claims to be the first tenant-led organisation of its type to own and manage a large scale property development.
