ST. MODWEN APPOINTS GALLIFORD TRY TO BUILD NEXT PHASE OF ST. ANDREW’S PARK DEVELOPMENT
4 May 2017
St. Modwen has appointed construction company, Galliford Try to deliver the latest phase of residential development at the St. Andrew’s Park 1,300-home new community at the former RAF Uxbridge base. This next phase will sit close to the edge of London’s newest park – a 32-acre area of woodland and parkland at the heart of the scheme.
The £90 million apartment development includes the construction of a further 249 homes spread over four blocks and will offer a range of ownerships and tenures. In addition, a new road junction adjacent to the site will be created, with further landscaping of the communal areas also taking place.
The site is part of the planned new office and commercial heart of St. Andrew’s Park, which will be an extension to Uxbridge’s town centre, creating around 1,000 jobs in the area.
Work is scheduled to start on site later this month with a completion by late spring 2018.
Tim Seddon, Regional Director for London and the South East at St. Modwen, said: “This is a very significant stage for us and the project as we are developing this site ourselves rather than selling on the plots of land.
“We will have a wide variety of homes offering something for everyone with some to be sold and some to be privately rented.”
Matthew Pool, Galliford Try London and South East Commercial Managing Director, welcomed the news: “Our track record in delivering high quality residential schemes throughout London and the South East is well established. We are delighted to be working with St. Modwen on this high profile scheme, on the doorstep of our own headquarters, and look forward to adding this further phase of high-quality housing to the St. Andrew’s Park development.”
A new school on site has already been delivered and St. Modwen’s housebuilding arm, St. Modwen Homes is already onsite delivering some 85 new homes and Persimmon Homes is well advanced with its housing phases.
St. Andrew’s Park has a rich history as the former RAF Uxbridge played a pivotal role in the WWII’s Battle of Britain. The development is home to the Battle of Britain Bunker museum and operations room as well as the Grade II listed Hillingdon House, which sits at the heart of the park and is set to become home to a new restaurant.
