Plot 12 pocket park lower block view reduced

Plot 12 will be the first building to be delivered at Brent Cross Town.

Related Argent will build 120 homes here, as replacement homes for the Whitefield Estate residents of Whychcote Point, Clare Point and Norden Point, as well as welcoming new residents.

The homes have been designed by award-winning architects, Maccreanor Lavington and Whittam Cox. They have designed a building which consists of a lower block (9 storeys) and a taller block (12 storeys).

Each block contains two lifts and a staircase, with up to six homes on each level. Each home will have a private balcony or terrace.

The two blocks will include a new local park to the south, and the neighbourhood high street will be to the north. There will be two or three retail units on the ground floor of the buildings. The occupiers will be agreed closer to when the building is completed.

Once built, Plot 12 will be owned and managed by L&Q.

Plot 12 will be part of a larger residential quarter which will include four buildings offering homes to buy, homes to rent, and affordable homes.

We manage the impact of noise and vibrations throughout the construction period by carefully monitoring noise at the site boundary as well as selecting equipment and methods of construction to reduce noise and vibration, using hoarding and screens as noise barriers and ensuring machinery is shut down when not in use.

Residents invited to choose colour palettes in new homes

Earlier in 2023, residents were invited to choose colour palettes in new homes. These choices are now being built into the new homes.
