Our stunning new development in Hounslow, Lampton Parkside, has hit a major milestone by reaching its highest point.
Joint venture partners, The Hill Group and Notting Hill Genesis celebrated with a 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 20 July.
Once complete, Lampton Parkside will provide 780 new homes to the local community, comprising 563 for private sale and 217 affordable apartments. Many of the 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.
John Hughes, group development director 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.”
Andy Hill, chief executive at The Hill Group added: “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.”
Cllr Shantanu Rajawat, leader of Hounslow Council, 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 and each home comes with 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 trendy café culture at nearby beauty spots such as Kew and Chiswick. Closer to home, Hounslow centre itself 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 existing mature and semi-mature trees. The site borders Lampton Park and the new scheme perfectly integrates with the edge of the park offering improved permeability and access for pedestrians and cyclists.
Lampton Parkside is due to complete in 2030, with the first sales completions due by the end of 2022.
