Approval granted for Quintain’s 475-home Wembley development


Quintain’s new estate of 475 homes at Wembley Park has entered its second phase of development after securing a planning approval from Brent Council.


The new estate is the next stage in the redevelopment of the 85-acre site at Wembley Park by the developer Quintain.


The scheme, designed by Grid Architects, will include seven buildings of different heights surrounding an acre of private, landscaped gardens.


The estate of new homes has been specifically designed to aim at clients from the mid to upper brackets,which are the most undersupplied sectors of the London housing market. From the planned 475 homes, 433 will be privately owned.


Quintain development director, Ben Giddens, commented: "The development is gathering pace, and this planning consent moves us another step closer towards Wembley Park being a thriving destination and neighbourhood for all those who visit, live and work in the area."


Under the previous phase 1.8m sq ft of development was completed, including a four star Hilton Hotel in 2012, Brent Civic Centre and the London Designer Outlet earlier this year.


“Londoners want to live in a neighbourhood with soul as well as excellent amenities," said Quintain chief executive, Maxwell James.


He added: "With a century of history as a leisure destination, two iconic world-class entertainment venues, London’s only designer outlet and Bond Street within 20 minutes by Tube, this new development at Wembley Park will be unique in London and highly attractive to those seeking a great place to live.”


According to Quintain, the construction of the second phase of the development will embark in the summer, with the expected completion date for the first homes in 2016.
