South Kilburn Phase 2, Brent
Network Homes recently completed Phase 2 of the £600 million South Kilburn regeneration.
This involved redeveloping Bronte House and Fielding House to create 229 new apartments, with a gross development value of £66.5 million.
Network Homes won the contract following a competitive bid process through London Borough of Brent’s South Kilburn Regeneration Developer Framework.
The redevelopment comprises 126 apartments for sale and 103 rented homes in four blocks, with designs inspired by the traditional local mansion block facades. The four buildings create a courtyard of high quality landscaped gardens, and there's a new walking link through to Kilburn Park Road.
The exceptional design is by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands (who were involved in the London 2012 Athlete’s Village) and Alison Brooks Architects (who won the prestigious Building Design Architect of the Year Award in 2012). South Kilburn Phase 2 design was shortlisted in the 2013 London Housing Design Awards.
We appointed an on-site senior housing officer to act as the single contact point for residents, Brent Council and other landlords on policy and neighbourhood management issues. This unique role helped to ensure the sustainability of the regeneration project by working closely with the new community in numerous ways to ensure it flourishes.
The overall South Kilburn masterplan includes 2,400 new homes, with half of these available to current South Kilburn residents, and a wealth of new infrastructure, including a school, new health facilities and a sustainable energy network.
