A joint venture of Barratt London and the Hyde Group has received an approval to build 460 homes on the former Kodak factory site in Harrow, north London, under Phase one of Harrow View East mixed-use scheme.
Barratt and Hyde had acquired part of the 30-acre former industrial complex in 2017.
Harrow View has secured reserved matters permission for the project.
Under the first phase, designed by architects Pollard Thomas Edwards, 460 homes will be built, along with car parking and cycle storage facilities.
Work is expected to start on site in summer 2018.
Phase one of the development will include an energy centre for future energy needs and more than 6,458ft2 of community space. The energy centre will retain the ‘iconic’ Kodak chimney, Harrow View said.Future phases will deliver 1,150 new homes, 350,000ft2 of office, senior living facilities, a community centre and leisure uses.
Landscaping in the form of a park with pedestrian and cycle routes spanning the length of the site will also be created.
Barratt London regional Land and development director Matt Calladine said: “We are delighted to have secured reserved matters consent for the first phase of Harrow View East.
“We look forward to continuing our work with Hyde Group to breathe new life into this landmark site, providing much needed new homes and amenities for the area.
“We have a strong track record of working together on projects that deliver high-quality homes and benefits for local people, including the Harrow Square development near Harrow-on-the-Hill station.”
Hyde Group operations director (development) Tom Shaw said: “This is an important first step in the delivery of this key site. The housing shortage in London will only be solved if we all play our part and work together.
“The Harrow View East site is a prime example of how partnerships, between organisations like Barratt London and Hyde, can deliver many of the new homes that the people of Harrow and London so desperately need.”
