The Hyde Group's regeneration of the Stonebridge Estate, with Countryside, is entering its final phases, with two major developments close to Harlesden station,
- Emerald Gardens will see the creation of 109 new homes.
- Winchelsea Road/Laurence Avenue will deliver 178 new flats and houses.
About the Stonebridge Estate regeneration
Today Stonebridge's towers are gone, replaced by award-winning low-rise housing, interspersed with communal areas, shops, trees and street lights – a committed attempt to design out the previously high levels of crime and deprivation. A Stirling prize-nominated children's centre and a health and community centre are a visual testimony to the area's £225m renaissance. Crime is down dramatically. Today, Stonebridge is regularly held up as a success story when it comes to transforming difficult estates.
Once complete the scheme will provide a total of 1,850 homes: 1,100 social rent, 100 shared ownership and 650 for sale. In addition, a new community hub has been created providing a new heath centre, café, community centre and retail outlet.
