House building accelerates at Wembley Park, with ceremony to celebrate dual success

  • Topping out ceremony at Emerald Gardens, where sales have reached 90 percent
  • GLA Deputy Mayor for Housing supports acceleration of London home building
  • Wembley Park is London’s latest lifestyle destination

Wembley Park has undergone significant revitalisation in recent years. While retaining the area’s rich heritage, developer Quintain has considerately added a range of stylish accommodation options, along with the fantastic LDO shopping experience, to turn Wembley Park into one of London’s hottest lifestyle locations.

Now, this exciting part of North West London has reached a significant milestone in its development of mid-mainstream housing, marked by a well-attended topping out and ground breaking ceremony on 29th July 2015.

Deputy Mayor for Housing, Land and Property at the Greater London Authority, Richard Blakeway, was the guest of honour, extolling the importance of accelerating homebuilding in London, of which Wembley Park is a shining example.

James Saunders, COO of Quintain, who also attended the event comments:

“It has been wonderful to take time to celebrate the topping out of Emerald Gardens. This is a significant step in speeding up the supply of new homes for Londoners and in building a Wembley Park that is a joy for people to live in now and for future generations.”

The topping out of Emerald Gardens, Quintain’s current residential offering at North West Village, Wembley Park, comes as sales figures for the development hit the 90 percent mark. Inspired by London’s famous garden squares, Emerald Gardens consists of 475 apartments spread across seven buildings, set in almost an acre of landscaped grounds. Most have their own private outdoor space, with the contemporary design providing a range of balcony or terraced options.

The studio, one, two and three bedroom homes at Emerald Gardens combine the elegance of London living with a host of practical amenities such as a 24 hour concierge and security service, a gym, a private cinema and a residents’ club room

Mike Higgins, Director of Sisk, Emerald Gardens’ appointed contractor, comments:

“Sisk are delighted to be involved in the construction of Emerald Gardens, which maintains our ongoing strategic partnership with Quintain over the last 10 years, driving forward the provision of stylish, contemporary new homes for Londoners at Wembley Park.”

The blending of new architecture with the existing grace of Wembley Park, as demonstrated so perfectly by Emerald Gardens, has been one of the successes of the development to date. Buildings have been carefully designed to appeal both to current Wembley Park residents and to those attracted to the area by the superb lifestyle it offers.

Not only did the 29th July ceremony celebrate the topping out of Emerald Gardens, but it also marked the ground breaking milestone for the development’s exciting second phase, Alto Apartments: 19 floors of contemporary, mid-market homes. The first phase, Pienna Apartments, will comprise 133 stylish homes, reaching up to 19 storeys, priced from £355,000 and launching in September 2015.
