The Kensington & Chelsea Council has shortlisted Willmott Dixon for the two Ladbroke Grove area housing schemes in west London. The total value for the combined construction of two different towers at different locations is worth £25.6m.
Willmott Dixon will build a £17.1m development on Kensal Road which is the larger of the two projects. This will create 37 homes above new ground floor commercial premises. This is a five-storey building which might rise to six stories at certain points.
The larger of the two schemes is expected to be complete in the autumn of 2022. Tenants will have access to a shared garden and a podium deck with a landscaped terrace. The contract of both the towers was procured under the Southern Construction Framework (SCF).
The construction company will also deliver a second tower costing £8.5m development half a mile away in Hewer Street. This will provide a further 20 flats by early 2023. Also, both buildings will be fuelled by air source heat pumps.
