The project consists of the construction of 3 no. reinforced concrete frame PRS residential accommodation blocks of up to 17 storeys, providing 553 new homes to the Wembley Park regeneration site. Works are inclusive of 4 no. A3 commercial units, 91 no. underground car parking spaces in podium slab structure and finishes, a communal link block and basement plant areas following on from an advance enabling works contract and landscaping.
The buildings are reinforced in-situ concrete frame on CFA piled foundations and are serviced with 4no. passenger Lifts and 2no. main stair cores. The façade is made up of facing brick/feature stone bands, aluminium windows/curtain walling and steel balconies.
Of the 553 homes, 114 are affordable with the remaining 439 managed by Quintain Living. Residents of South West Lands benefit from a centralised ‘hub’ with an onsite gym, library, resident’s lounge, flexible workspaces and 24/7 concierge service leading out to a podium garden. The project is formed around a series of south-facing courtyards with private balconies and communal roof terraces to reveal spectacular views across London, while South Way and Station Square are activated at ground level with terraces, residents’ facilities and retail units to animate the space, as well as the experience of walking between the station and the stadium.
The redevelopment of the Wembley Park area is a significant regeneration project undertaken by developers Quintain, of which the South West Lands site forms part of. The large site is split into 7 individual plots SW01 to SW07, of which McAleer & Rushe are under construction with plots SW03A, SW03B, SW04 & SW05 with an overall contract value of £186m.
The South West Lands plot lies adjacent to Wembley Stadium and London Designer Outlet. The site has boundaries with Chiltern Rail to the South of the site and South Way Road to the North.
