Architect TateHindle helps UNITE secure planning approval for 699-bed student accommodation development by Wembley Stadium
Brent Council has resolved to grant planning consent to UNITE, the UK’s leading developer and manager of student accommodation, for a c. 220,000 sqft student accommodation scheme on Olympic Way, adjacent to Wembley Stadium. TateHindle is the project architects, acting on behalf of UNITE throughout the planning process.
Jim Hindle, director of TateHindle, said: “The scheme is within the overall master plan for the regeneration of the Wembley Stadium area. The granting of planning permission shows the scheme is fully in keeping with the vision of Brent Council and will make a positive contribution to the council’s plans for regeneration and jobs in the area.”
The one acre development comprises a 19-storey tower with accommodation for 699 students in a mix of shared flats with communal living and kitchen spaces, and self-contained studios plus some 10,000 sqft of retail units. The site is being developed by the London Student Accommodation Vehicle (LSAV), UNITE’s 50:50 joint venture with GIC.
Work on site is due to begin in 2014 with completion scheduled for 2016. The development fronts onto Olympic Way, which runs from Wembley Park underground station to the Stadium, alongside the raised pedestrian walkway that is filled with spectators on match days and is within sight of the statue of 1966 England football legend, Bobby Moore.
Jim Hindle added: “Wembley Stadium is an iconic arena, known the world over. This mixed-use development has been designed to make a bold architectural statement alongside the Stadium and the recently completed Civic Centre and contribute to the extensive improvements to the public domain.”
