Phase 1a of the regeneration will deliver 360 homes. 229 of which are complete. The remaining 131 will be completed by December 2012. Phase 1b, which includes Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ award winning design, commenced in July 2012, delivering 208 homes by 2015.

By securing planning permission Brent has to date, taken control of the design process. However, for Site 11b, the Council has secured outline planning permission with all matters reserved. The exceptional quality standards set by the earlier developments in South Kilburn will be expected to be exceed for Site 11b, particularly given its location at the gateway between South Kilburn and Queens Park.
