£64m north London residential scheme secured by Shepherd
Developer Shepherd Construction has secured a lucrative £64 million contract for the delivery of a new residential and mixed-use scheme in Brent, north London.
The project aims to transform the current warehouse site at Collingdale into a thriving residential and retail site for local residents to enjoy.
It will see construction of 379 new homes across four six-storey properties, as well as 60,000 sq ft of retail spaces for shops and other local businesses. A 450-space basement car park will also be built to meet the needs of shoppers and residents alike.
Shepherd regional managing director Mark Tant commented: "This latest win underlines our commitment to helping developers bring much-needed projects to fruition that will create better environments for those living and working in the vicinity.
"To this end we will ensure that we work closely with the local community at every stage of the construction programme."
Leach Rhodes Walker is the architect behind the design for the mixed-use development, with demolition work at the site set to get underway in the coming months.
The four new buildings promise to be a major change from the current uninspiring site, with each property to be clad in white render and featuring in-set balconies to allow residents to enjoy exquisite views of the surrounding area.
Royal London Asset Management and Kitewood Development Partner will also collaborate on the construction and engineering sides of the project.
It follows a £43 million project win for Shepherd elsewhere in the capital, with new student accommodation, hotel and office space to be built as part of the Spring Mews scheme in Vauxhall.
An array of other residential projects are also being undertaken by the developer across many parts of the UK at present, including construction of a new 37-storey residential tower for student accommodation in Leeds, the City Lofts project in Sheffield, a 25-storey development in London's Discovery Dock and a new student residential building for the University of Warwick.
