House building company Hill has been appointed to build the first new homes on the Aylesbury Estate, Notting Hill Genesis has announced.
Hill was given the £70 million contract to build 229 on the ‘package A’ site at the junction of Bradenham Close and Westmoreland Road.
Eight-four per cent of the homes will be socially rented, with 54 of them extra care units and seven set aside for people with learning difficulties.
Jeremy Stibbe, group director of regeneration and assets for Notting Hill Genesis said: “Having Hill on board to build our first homes in the Aylesbury neighbourhood is fantastic news.
“They are highly experienced in regeneration projects that benefit the wider community and the high standards they demand match the vision we have for the area.
“This is a very challenging time for the housing sector and development has slowed in London and beyond, but we retain our commitment to producing the quality new homes so desperately needed in this area and are looking forward to starting construction in the very near future.”
It is believed the first new builds on the estate will be completed by 2020-21.
