Build-to-rent development launches in Wembley

22 May 2020 | General

HUB has completed Chesterfield House in Wembley, North London, a 239-home build-to-rent development designed by architects Maccreanor Lavington.

The landmark scheme, which comprises two buildings of 21 and 26-storeys, has been handed over to Realstar, which will operate Chesterfield House under its UNCLE brand.

The development is now known as UNCLE Wembley.

Alex Hall, senior development manager at HUB, said: “The new development brings 239 exemplar build-to-rent homes to Wembley under the UNCLE brand, including extensive public realm and retail from which the whole community will benefit.

“Not only is the project a fantastic new asset for the area, it is also an architecturally superb building that we believe represents a real step-change in quality for Wembley and acts as a regeneration marker for the High Road.

“As we now look ahead to delivering Wembley Link, HUB’s second development in the revitalisation of Wembley High Road, we would like to thank the people of Wembley for their crucial input during consultation for Chesterfield House.

“We would also like to thank our contractors Henry Construction for their commitment to the project in ensuring the extremely high-quality and timely delivery of UNCLE Wembley.

“Since day one, HUB has worked closely with local people to secure the best outcome for everyone – and we believe that UNCLE Wembley represents just that.”

The property will offer a choice of furnished and unfurnished apartments, with the furnished element provided by Danish brand Bo Concept.

UNCLE said it made sure the amenities are also focused around enhancing the physical and mental well-being of its residents.

These include a fitness studio with Technogym equipment and a TRX wall, a Zen Zone which incorporates an InHere Meditation Studio, a rooftop terrace and BBQ area as well as an indoor three-point basketball court.

The two main blocks are connected by a seven-storey building which frames a new public square at ground floor level. The square features seating, paved areas as well as new planting.

A public walkway through the link building also provides access to potential future phases of development behind the High Road.

The project was delivered via a partnership between HUB and specialist investor Bridges Fund Management. Building contractor Henry Construction completed work at the Brent site last month following a three-year programme to deliver Wembley’s tallest building.
