Bouygues Development lands £65m London resi scheme

Bouygues Development and Londonewcastle have been selected as preferred partner for a £65m residential scheme in South Kilburn, London.

The residential-led scheme for the London Borough of Brent will create 144 new homes, 28 of which will be affordable units to be acquired by housing association L&Q.

Located next to Queen’s Park station, the development will also feature 480 sq m of commercial floor space.

Construction is due to begin in early 2014 and will be completed by November 2016.

Bouygues Development managing director Nicolas Guérin said: “Working with our partners, our focus has been to provide a high quality development, designed with this vision in mind and deliver a scheme which enhances the area and supports the environment where people will want to live.”

The development forms part of the £400m regeneration of South Kilburn, which aims to deliver 2,400 new homes.

Bouygues Development, part of the Bouygues Construction group, formed a joint venture with central London residential developer Londonewcastle to deliver the scheme.

Brent Council’s lead member for regeneration and major projects councillor Crane said: “This new development will be a real asset to the regeneration of South Kilburn. It opens up this desirable part of Brent to buyers who often have to compromise location for size or quality.

“Our aim is to develop housing of a high standard, in great neighbourhoods, to suit most budgets. This scheme, thanks to the support of our partners, is an example of how we are making that possible.”

Bouygues team wins £57m Lewisham development

Bouygues UK subsidiary Denne has been awarded a £57m mixed-use scheme in south east London.

Located on a former industrial site on Thurston Road, Lewisham, the project for London residential developer L&Q will create more than 400 flats in three buildings of six, seven and 15 storeys.

The residential buildings will sit on a two-storey structure incorporating 6,770 sq m of retail space and a car park.

All residential units will meet Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and the retail units have a target to achieve BREEAM Excellent.

Managing director of Bouygues UK’s housing management unit Paul Abson said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the contract to deliver this prestigious mixed use project, which enables us to continue our excellent working relationship with L&Q.

“With a strong focus on sustainability, we believe the scheme will transform the existing site and also provide much needed homes for the people of Lewisham,” he added.
