Avanton has confirmed the submission of planning for the Stonebridge Place development on behalf of the site owner Canada Israel.
The Stonebridge Place development will provide 515 new homes and 1,200sqft of commercial space on the balance of the completed WEM Tower site that is currently occupied by surplus car parking. The total development site is 2.5 acres in size.
35% (by habitable room) of the 515 new homes are allocated for affordable housing, comprising 57 shared ownership and 117 London affordable rent homes.
Located to the south of Wembley Park and National Stadium, adjacent to Stonebridge Park Station (Bakerloo Underground Line), the new Stonebridge Place project will provide three striking new buildings.
The first building is a 32-storey focal triangular tower with glass and green terracotta façade providing 266 one, two and three bedroom market sale apartments over a new double height residential lobby, complete with flexible commercial space.
The second stepped building, rising from 10 to 20 storeys, will have a glass and beige brick façade with balconies providing 249 mixed tenure homes and flexible commercial space, with a large podium garden at first floor level.
Avanton has partnered with an important local sports-led charity, Stonebridge Boxing Club, to deliver a purpose-built training facility. This will be in the third new building on site which will be three storeys providing a new boxing gym and public café with a glass and bronzed-black terracotta façade.
The project’s significant public realm improvements include a new civic square, for food markets, a new Wembley outdoor Film Festival and Art & Antiques Market. Running through the site will be Stonebridge Place, a new green pedestrianised route linking the various buildings and landscaped areas.
The planning application follows significant local community and stakeholder consultation undertaken between December 2018 and January 2022.
