Housing provider Network Homes has been granted planning permission from Brent Council last night (4 July) to redevelop their Wembley offices into more than two hundred new homes, subject to approval from the Greater London Authority and completion of aS106 agreement.
Under the plans, their existing 8 storey building on the corner of Olympic Way and Fulton Road will be demolished and replaced by a new building, featuring 253 new homes, 43 of which will be available under shared ownership and 34 for affordable rent.
The scheme also includes over 1,000 square metres of retail space, basement car parking for blue badge holders, new landscaping, and open space.
Developers say the building will be formed of a single building articulated through two separate massings connected by a link block.
The northernmost massing, on the corner of Olympic Way and Fulton Road is to be 21 storeys in height whilst the southernmost massing is to be 15 storeys in height.
Cllr Shama Tatler, Brent Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Highways and Planning, said:
"We are committed to providing a range of homes that people in the borough need and I welcome that this development will bring more quality affordable homes for Brent residents.
"As well as delivering crucial new homes and retail jobs, this is a great development which contributes to our goal of making Brent a place where people want to live and work."
