Work will start on site on Phase 2 of the £300M North Wharf Gardens mixed use regeneration scheme in Paddington, London, early next year following granting of planning permission by Westminster council.

 

Work is already under way on the £70M Phase 1 project that will deliver 150 new apartments along with retail, office, social and community spaces and improved public realm. This phase includes the development of a single building ranging from nine to 15 storeys in height.

 

Phase 2 will provide another 335 apartments, affordable business, retail, social and community spaces including a primary school, serviced apartments, a gym, a five star hotel and a new public garden at the heart of the scheme.

 

The Amwaj Property masterplan covers a 1.48 hectare area that previously housed North Westminster Community School and aims to create a new residential quarter in Paddington Basin connecting the development to the wider area and completing the regeneration of the area. The apartments have been designed to meet Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and the commercial elements are to be BREEAM Excellent rated.

 

Russell Pedley, Director at Assael Architecture, said; “North Wharf Gardens presents a new residential urban quarter for Paddington, encapsulating a unique set of culturally led, placemaking ideas, which will combine to contribute to the City of Westminster’s cultural identity.

 

“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. 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.”
