Be:here to build 132 PRS homes in west London

Willmott Dixon has announced its private rented sector arm be:here will build 132 new homes near Hayes & Harlington Crossrail station in West London.

It has completed contracts with Development Securities and Cathedral Group for the Gatefold building, part of the Old Vinyl Factory site in Hayes.

Be:here will build 132 homes for private renters alongside office space, a café and community facilities close to what will become the Hayes & Harlington Crossrail station.

Construction is due to start in the first quarter of next year.

Willmott Dixon said the Gatefold building is part of be:here’s goal of acquiring sites across London, and in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Leeds for developments of 100-400 apartments.

Be:here’s managing director Matthew Pullen said the company will “create homes for private rent on an ambitious scale, working with institutional investors that recognise the sector’s enormous potential to provide long-term revenue to their portfolios and the benefits of our platform as a means of achieving that”.

In June be:here announced it would develop 233 homes at East India Dock in East London as part of the Aberfeldy Village regeneration, which will be completed in 2015.
