Work Starts On 3,000 Home Grand Union Village

Work has started on a new 3,000 home, canal side neighbourhood at Alperton in north west London.

Grand Union Village will occupy a 22 acre site at the former Northfields Industrial Estate. Once complete it will include amenities such as a community centre, health centre, nursery, gym, canal side piazza with a restaurant and shop plus flexible workspace where 600 people could work.

The development will include 35% affordable properties split between affordable rent and shared ownership.

Piers Clanford, Managing Director, at developers St George, said: “The launch of Grand Union is a hugely exciting milestone and in the years ahead we transform this underutilised area into much needed new homes and an abundance of green space for residents and the local community to enjoy.

“Grand Union has been carefully designed with the local community to connect seamlessly with the surrounding Stonebridge and Alperton area, as we create an exciting new neighbourhood with a wealth of amenities and uses, high quality homes and beautiful, accessible public spaces.”

The are now a number of schemes which are adding substantial numbers of homes to London’s housing supply, of which this is one. It could just be that over the next few years the capital’s chronic housing shortage will start to ease, at least in certain areas.
