TWO Brent redevelopment schemes were honoured this week at a prestigious property awards ceremony in central London.
Kilburn Quarter and Wembley Park's Tipi Alto took the joint award for 'Development of the Year' at the 2018 Property Week RESI Awards at London's Grosvenor House hotel, on Wednesday, May 16.
Kilburn Quarter, a scheme which saw 229 homes built, of which 103 were made available for social rent, and the Quintain-owned Tipi Alto development in Wembley Park, which has seen 140 homes completed so far for rent, both scooped the prize on a night billed as "a true celebration of the very best the industry has to offer."
Both schemes are part of major regeneration projects in Brent and the RESI Award is, for the south Kilburn regeneration programme in particular, the latest in a long-line of accolades.
Cllr Shama Tatler, Brent Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Highways and Planning, said:
"We're committed to delivering the homes, the quality of life and the economic opportunities that people need in the borough and this Property Week RESI award demonstrates that the homes that are being built, are delivering on quality too.
"The award also goes to show the results that can be achieved by working in partnership with external organisations such as Network Homes and Quintain, who developed the sites at South Kilburn and Wembley Park, which have ultimately have helped to improve the lives of our residents."
