St. Modwen Homes has started construction on 85 new homes at St. Andrew’s Park in Uxbridge, Greater London.
The properties will form the latest phase of the 1,300-home new community at the former RAF Uxbridge site in Hillingdon and will sit on the edge of London’s newest park – a 40-acre area of woodland and parkland at the heart of the development.
Known for its award-winning and unique house designs, this will be the first time that St. Modwen Homes has built family homes in Greater London, with St. Andrew’s Park set to be the housebuilder’s most prestigious development to date.
Currently celebrating its fifth anniversary, St. Modwen Homes is the housebuilding brand of St. Modwen, which together with its joint venture partner VINCI is leading the regeneration of the former RAF Uxbridge site.
Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “We take great pride in delivering design-led properties that include features such as vaulted ceilings, varied external materials and fully glazed sections of the façade. At St. Andrew’s Park, we’ve worked closely with Stride Treglown architects to ensure our new homes stand out in the marketplace and we’re very excited to now be in a position where we’re moving forwards with the development.”
With construction now underway, St. Modwen Homes aims to launch the first properties for sale next month, coinciding with the opening of the on-site sales and marketing suite. The first homes to be released will include a mix of one and two-bedroom maisonettes and four bedroomed, three and four storey townhouses; some of which will boast views directly onto the park.
All the new homes will have their own allocated parking spaces as well as lockable cycle storage and access to visitor parking. The first Showhome is due to open in May 2017.
Dave said: “St. Andrew’s Park is set to be a truly standout development and a great example of regeneration in the UK. More than just homes, new homeowners will also benefit from the many amenities being delivered on site, including places to work, a theatre, museum and new restaurant, as well as the park and John Locke Academy Primary School that have already been delivered.”
St. Andrew’s Park has a rich history and as the former RAF Uxbridge played a pivotal role in the Battle of Britain. The development is home to the Battle of Britain Bunker museum and operations room as well as the Grade II listed Hillingdon House, which sits at the heart of the park and is set to become home to a new restaurant.
The new homes by St. Modwen Homes will build upon the growing new community, with earlier phases of new homes already occupied and the John Locke Academy well-established. Planning consent has also been granted for new apartments on the ‘Triangle Site’, which will link the development to Uxbridge’s vibrant town centre with its rail and underground stations.
