Plans for 1,200 London homes on ex-Tesco land

Aaron Morby 5 years ago

The Meyer Homes development business set up by a former Redrow London MD has submitted plans for two London schemes totalling nearly 1,200 apartments.

The former Tesco sites in Hillingdon and Woolwich will be built out as high-rise, mixed-use developments and include 40,000 sq ft of commercial space.

Meyer Homes was set up three years ago to take forward 14 prime sites acquired from Tesco’s development arm Spenhill after the house builder’s parent consortium snapped up the portfolio of land.

It is backed by specialist property investor Meyer Bergman, AIMCo, one of Canada’s largest institutional investment managers, and Chinese property developer Vanke.

The planned 1,181 new homes form part of their current portfolio, which is targeting delivery of 4,000 homes in London and South East.

The Hillingdon Gateway scheme will transform a five acre site next to Hillingdon tube station with 377 homes, a new shop, a café and affordable workspace.

The resubmitted plans also include a significant area of public space and landscaping improvements  along with a network of new outdoor green spaces. The client team includes architect Collado Collins, services engineer Cudd Bentley and project manager Stace.

In south London, the Woolwich Central will deliver 804 homes, retail, office, community and affordable workspace in two phases around an existing Tesco superstore and homes scheme built by Willmott Dixon a few years ago.

The scheme has been designed by Formation Architects, with Aecom on board as project manager and Cudd Bentley as MEP engineer.

Meyer managing director James Moody, said: “Over the coming years our development vision is to build stylish places to live in the capital city and beyond. ”
