450 new homes, all of which will be affordable, are to be built on three Transport for London carparks in Harrow.
The agency has appointed Catalyst Housing to develop land at Canons Park, Rayners Lane and Stanmore Underground Stations and says that, in addition to the new homes, the sites will see improvements to the public realm, plus enhanced pedestrian and cycling connectivity.
It also says some commuter car parking capacity, including an “appropriate number” of bays for disabled drivers will be retained.
Graeme Craig, Director of Commercial Development at TfL, said: “We’re delighted to have appointed Catalyst as our partner and look forward to working with them to deliver hundreds of affordable homes at these prime locations next to Tube stations.
“This is another important milestone in our programme across the capital that is delivering thousands of new affordable homes, creating thousands of new jobs and generating vital revenue to reinvest in the transport network.”
Ian McDermott, Chief Executive of Catalyst said: “All three of these schemes will provide 100 per cent genuinely affordable housing for Londoners, and we are really looking forward to working with TfL and Harrow Council to create these new, vibrant communities.”
