Joint venture partners, The Hill Group and Notting Hill Genesis, reached a significant milestone at Lampton Parkside, Hounslow, with the topping out of the latest phase of 260 apartments.
To mark this significant highlight in the ten-year project, senior representatives of the partnership came together on July 20th to celebrate reaching the highest point of construction at the landmark development.
Once complete, Lampton Parkside will provide 780 new homes to the local community, comprising 563 for private sale and 217 affordable apartments. Many homes have far-reaching views across Green Flag awarded Lampton Park, and the scheme has been beautifully designed around landscaped communal gardens. And smart podium courtyards that sit conveniently above undercroft parking, with electric car charging points and secure bicycle storage.
Andy Hill, chief executive at The Hill Group, comments: “Today marks an important milestone in the construction of Lampton Parkside, and we are delighted to celebrate this occasion with our partners Notting Hill Genesis. This project, which builds on our experience in delivering mixed-use schemes, will provide much-needed energy-efficient homes to Hounslow.”
John Hughes, group director of Housing for Notting Hill Genesis, said: “This has already proven to be incredibly popular development, and I am confident the next phase will be no exception. We are committed to providing high-quality, affordable apartments in attractive and thriving places that our residents are proud to call home – and we know Lampton Parkside will more than meet those expectations.”
Leader of the Council, Cllr Shantanu Rajawat, added: “With stunning views of Lampton Park, along with landscaped communal gardens, this development embodies why Hounslow is such a great place to live. I am pleased to see the new homes will be energy efficient with sustainable features. As a council, we are committed to making sure Hounslow has cleaner air and easy access to green spaces.”
“Yet for me, the biggest achievement is that 217 homes will be affordable. Like many London boroughs, Hounslow is facing an acute housing shortage, and these homes are a small yet vital stepping stone in tackling the current housing crisis. I would like to thank Notting Hill Genesis and Hill for building these affordable homes, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Lampton Parkside has the added advantage of a friendly and knowledgeable concierge service, operating 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Each home has private outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace, an essential feature for Today’s modern residents. Lampton Parkside is just a 4-minute walk to Hounslow Central underground station, giving residents access to central London in as little as 30 minutes. Equally, for those looking for a quieter pace, residents can enjoy calming riverside walks and modern café culture at nearby beauty spots such as Kew and Chiswick. Closer to home, Hounslow centre has seen recent transformation and boasts a range of quality restaurants, bars, and shops.
Urban life will blend seamlessly with Lampton Park’s natural setting; play areas, green open spaces and landscaped areas sit alongside mature and semi-mature trees. The site borders Lampton Park, and the new scheme perfectly integrates with the park’s edge, offering improved permeability and access for pedestrians and cyclists.
Lampton Parkside is due to be complete in 2030, with the first sales completions are due by the end of 2022.
