HUB and Bridges get green light for an additional 256 homes in Wembley
Developer HUB and specialist investor Bridges Fund Management have received the go-ahead from Brent Council for the second phase of their residential-led, phased redevelopment of the Wembley Link Homes, which will link Wembley Stadium with Wembley Town Centre in north London.
Designed by Glenn Howells Architects, this new phase of Wembley Link will deliver 256 homes in two 17- and 19-storey buildings. Homes will be delivered across a range of tenures, with homes for sale, as well as homes for rent at a variety of discounts.
HUB is currently on site building the first phase of the Wembley Link scheme: Chesterfield House, which will comprise 239 homes across two 26- and 21- storey buildings. Following the first two phases of the development, the proposed phases 3 and 4 of the wider scheme have the potential to deliver over 400 additional new homes, some of which will be delivered by London Borough of Brent.
The proposals bring in to use a derelict area previously owned by Network Rail alongside the Chiltern Railway, where overgrown land and disused garages will be replaced with homes and an extensive new public garden, which will be accessed from the public square being delivered as part of the Chesterfield House development.
HUB and Bridges are working closely with LB Brent to ensure both developments complement and enhance the Wembley Opportunity Area and deliver on the vision for the Wembley Housing Zone.
Before submitting the project for planning, HUB led an extensive programme of community engagement, which saw close to 900 people involved in sharing their views through individual interviews, focus groups and a survey.
HUB managing director Steve Sanham said: “Wembley Link will provide high-quality, thoughtfully designed homes across a range of tenures, as well as much-needed green space to the wider community. We’ve worked closely with interested parties in the local community to ensure that the continuation of the Wembley Link story is a positive one, and that public use is maintained within the new garden area.”
Simon Ringer, Partner and Head of Property Funds at Bridges Fund Management, said: “As the population of London continues to grow, there’s a clear and urgent need for more high-quality, lower-cost housing. So we’re delighted to be teaming up with HUB again for this project in Brent. By listening closely to the needs of the community, we’ve been able to design a scheme that will not only address local housing need but also help to revitalise the local area.”
HUB Group UK is an experienced, people-centred developer delivering thoughtfully designed homes and places in well-connected locations.
The company was set up in 2012 with the recognition that too many of today’s developments are not accessible to the majority of people in the UK. With a pipeline of over 2,500 homes, both for sale and rent, HUB is going some way to make up for the shortfall. Beyond supplying well-designed homes, HUB’s focus centers on providing spaces for local communities to engage, interact and grow. To achieve this, HUB carries out extensive public consultations and community engagement programmes and offers local employment and training schemes across its sites.
HUB’s developments include Taberner House and the redevelopment of the popular Queen’s Gardens in Croydon; The Boiler House and Material Store on the grounds of the former EMI factory in Hayes; the Rehearsal Rooms in North Acton, one of London’s first institutionally-backed PRS schemes; and Hoola London, a residential scheme heated by excess energy from the neighbouring ExCel, at the Royal Victoria Dock.
