Maccreanor Lavington Architects has won approval for this double tower scheme in Wembley, north London containing 239 ‘mid-market homes’
Backed by specialist residential developer HUB, the project features a 21-storey north block housing 103 flats offered at discount market rent and a 26-storey south block with 136 market sale units.
Once complete the development, whihc will include a range of one, two and three-bed apartments, will be the tallest in Wembley.
The 24,714m² scheme, which also includes a new community centre on the ground floor of the north tower, will replace the existing 1960s Chesterfield House on the site (see below).
Steve Sanham, development director at HUB, said: ‘The capital needs more mid-market homes accessible to Londoners. HUB’s mission has always been to cater for this silent majority and we’re delighted that Wembley will join our stable of projects across the city.
‘Our aim is help drive new investment into Wembley while also providing vital new housing that’s within reach of people living in the local area. With a community centre, new public realm and a blend of rented and for sale housing, we see a genuine community emerging at Chesterfield House.’
