Description

This regeneration scheme will ultimately provide up to 1,000 quality affordable homes of mixed sizes together with 20 new retail units. The works are programmed over five phases, with commencement of work on site in August 2010 and completion expected in 2022.

The scheme reintegrates the estate with the traditional urban street pattern of north Kensington, re-opens links to key local transport routes and provides dwellings that are between one and three storeys high in the mews streets, rising to five storeys where they front Portobello Road and Wornington Road and seven storeys fronting the new park which will be created for the residents at the heart of the estate once work has been completed on the site.

The development offers an exemplar model for large scale urban regeneration adjoining a conservation area.
