We have teamed up with Barratt London, as joint venture partner, to develop the 30 acre former Kodak Industrial Complex in Harrow & Wealdstone known as Harrow View East. Harrow View East is located within the ‘Heart of Harrow’ Housing Zone and forms part of the 20 year regeneration strategy, which was recently approved by the council.
The site already has Outline Planning Permission for a large scale mixed-use residential-led development providing 1,150 new homes, including affordable homes and will deliver 350,000 sq ft employment space, senior living facilities, community centre and leisure uses. Harrow & Wealdstone Overground station is located a short distance from Harrow View East providing excellent transport links into Central London via the Bakerloo Line, National Rail Services and the Overground Network.
Matt Calladine, Regional Land & Development Director at Barratt London, said: “The acquisition provides both Barratt London and Hyde an excellent opportunity to deliver new homes within the London Borough of Harrow following the recent success of the former Royal Mail sorting office at Harrow-on-the Hill.”
Mike Johnson, Development Director (London and Kent) at the Hyde Group, said: “We are delighted to have teamed up with Barratt London for a second joint venture in Harrow. The housing shortage in London will only be solved if we all play our part and work together. This acquisition is a prime example of how partnership working can deliver many of the new homes that the people of London and the South East so desperately need.”
This is the second joint venture for Barratt London and Hyde. In October 2016, the partnership secured Harrow Square; a landmark scheme of 318 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, and a new 1,450 sq m (approximately) library at its centre with prime retail space, less than a minute’s walk from Harrow-on-the-Hill Underground and National Rail station.
