The Former Shredded Wheat Factory Scheme Secures Planning Consent

29th January 2019 – ZM Land & Capital and Metropolitan Thames Valley have secured planning approval for their 1,000,000 sq.ft mixed use scheme including 1,440 flats and 150,000 sq.ft of commercial space, known as the Wheat Quarter, in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.

The 24 acre site which abuts Welwyn Garden City’s town centre and railway station, with travel times to London Kings Cross of around 22 minutes, will see the restoration of the iconic Art Deco buildings, originally constructed in the 1920s to house Nabisco’s Shredded Wheat factory. The 63,000 sq.ft Production Hall is being fully renovated to provide high quality, characterful offices, and the adjoining listed buildings are to be reused to create an innovative new art hub and museum space designed by Tate Modern architect Jamie Fobert.

The scheme incorporates a new Civic Building with a Wellness Centre and Performing Arts facility designed by architects Louis de Soissons, the practice that originally designed much of Welwyn Garden City, including the Shredded Wheat factory. Together with high quality public realm, piazzas and squares framed by cafes, restaurants and wine bars, there will be an array of leisure facilities and public art.

Jeremy Fooks of ZM Land & Capital said: “The Wheat Quarter’s mix of uses and cultural place-making will offer businesses and residents a unique ‘live, work and play’ environment, consistent with Ebenezer Howard’s ethos on successful communities.”

Demolition and site remediation was undertaken earlier this year and development of the first phase to include the Production Hall, public realm and Civic Building is due to commence in the second quarter of 2019. The first phase is scheduled for practical completion in 2021.

LSH and Savills are the appointed agents on The Production Hall.

House in Hunsdon
Crowbrook is a new 200sqm 4-bedroom house for Mark and Bee de Rivaz in Hunsdon near Harlow. Mark has rheumatoid arthritis and limited mobility so it is important that the house is as open and accessible as possible. Hunsdon is a Category 1 Village and a conservation area. The new house replaces an existing bungalow of poor construction with a wasteful and torturous layout.
