Maccreanor Lavington Architects has submitted plans for this 239-home, double tower scheme in Wembley, north London
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.
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).
Subject to planning, work could start on site early next year.
Steve Sanham, development director at HUB, said: ‘Our plans will see Chesterfield House become a new local landmark in a changing Wembley. By aiding local businesses and creating new public and communal spaces, a redeveloped Chesterfield House will sit right at the heart of the community, while the provision of a high level of affordable housing through a range of discount market rent options will ensure high quality homes in Wembley are available for all.’
Toby Ware, senior architect at Maccreanor Lavington, added: ‘The quality of design and materials used on Chesterfield House represent a real step change in Wembley’s architecture.’
