St. Modwen has secured planning permission for its housebuilding business to deliver 85 homes at its £100m St. Andrew’s Park development, in Uxbridge, Greater London.
The properties will form part of a 1,300-home new community at the former RAF Uxbridge site in Hillingdon and will sit on the edge of London’s newest park – a 40-acre area of woodland and parkland at the heart of the development.
St. Modwen Homes will deliver a range of house types, suited at people on all stages of the property ladder, including three and four-bedroom family houses and one and two-bedroom apartments and maisonettes.
Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes said: “Now in its fifth year, St. Modwen Homes continues to go from strength to strength and, in the last 12 months, we have nearly doubled the amount of homes we’re delivering across the UK.
“These new homes at St. Andrew’s Park represent an important step for us as a housebuilder; being only our second site in Greater London and the first time we will build family houses here.”
In keeping with St. Modwen Homes’ philosophy of light and height, each of the new homes will boast high ceilings and large windows, as well as spacious rooms, to create bright and open spaces throughout. Additionally, all the new homes will have their own parking spaces as well as lockable cycle storage and access to visitor parking.
Dave continued: “We’ve worked very closely with our architects to ensure our homes at St. Andrew’s Park really stand out from others in the local area, using a variety of external elevations and internal layouts to accommodate differing homebuyers’ needs. Moving
forwards, the aim is to begin construction in the next couple of months, with the first show home due to be open by the end of the year.”
St. Andrew’s Park is being developed by St. Modwen and its joint venture partner VINCI on the historic former RAF site, which played a pivotal role in the Battle of Britain. The new development is rapidly taking shape, with over 100 homes and the John Locke Academy primary school already completed.
St. Modwen is also expected to start work this summer on 249 apartments, as part of an extension to the existing town centre. 207 of these are due to be developed as PRS (Private Rented Sector) homes, demonstrating the varied appeal of the St. Andrew’s Park
Additionally, the Grade II listed Hillingdon House is due to be redeveloped as a restaurant and office space and St. Modwen is awaiting planning consent for the new office park next to the town centre.
Tim Seddon, Regional Director for London & the South East at St. Modwen added: “St. Andrew’s Park continues to go from strength to strength as we continue our regeneration of the former MoD site, delivering a comprehensive mix of homes alongside space for
employment and recreation.
“Each aspect of the new development adds significantly to the overall strength of the project, reinforcing the benefits of regeneration to Uxbridge’s existing and growing community.”
St. Modwen Homes currently has 15 live sites located across the UK and, in 2013, completed 117 apartments in the iconic 13 storey Wembley Central building (its first development in Greater London), located adjacent to the tube station in Wembley.
