The team recently went to site to see the fast paced progress of construction on the first phase of the Silkstream project for St.George.
Hutchinson & Partners gained planning in 2020 for the first phase of the mixed use scheme in Hendon, which will comprise 770 mixed tenure homes across 9 buildings set amongst raised courtyard gardens. Phase 1 will also include a new supermarket as well as residential amenities including a gym and screening room.
The ground works for the first phase of the project are completing, and work on the superstructure has begun. The Sales & Marketing Suite is now open and contains a large scale model of the proposed development showing the first three buildings to complete, alongside the show flats. Phase 1 is scheduled to fully complete by 2028 and Phase 2 by 2031.
Phase 1 and Phase 2, designed by Makower Architects will deliver 1,309 new homes in total and a new public park, designed by Murdoch Wickham as well as the opening up of the historic Silk Stream which runs along the edge of the site. 35% of the new homes will be affordable housing.
Its great to see the project emerging, and impressive to see the speed with which it is progressing. Well done to all involved!
