Galliford Try has confirmed it has won the contract for a £155m housing regeneration scheme from Genesis Housing Association and football club Queens Park Rangers.
Located to the north of the new Old Oak Common HS2 and Crossrail station in west London, the project forms part of QPR’s long-term ambitions to build a new stadium in the area on land owned by car dealership Cargiant.
The housing scheme will see the construction of 605 homes and 3,500 sq m of commercial space.
It is located within the Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration area, which has been earmarked for development by local authorities.
The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC), made up of local authorities and key stakeholders, is co-ordinating plans for housing, infrastructure, planning, development and regeneration across the overall site.
The group is currently working on a masterplan that will set out how the wider development will be taken forward.
QPR chief operating officer Mark Donnelly hailed the housing scheme as a significant step in it achieving towards its goal of building a new stadium.
“We look forward to accelerating the delivery of more houses on other sites which will all help to deliver our long-term aim of a new stadium,” he said.
