Leading design and construction consultancy McBains was granted planning permission by the London Borough of Barnet on June 25, 2018 for its amended residentially-led, mixed use scheme at 60-68 The Broadway in West Hendon.
The site, close to Brent Cross, is currently occupied by the two-storey showroom and offices of tile and sanitaryware specialist, Tiles & Baths Direct (TBK Direct).
Having already achieved consent previously, the new design consists of 8 storeys providing a total of 53 apartments on the six uppermost storeys, including a landscaped roof terrace providing residents with amenity space with long distance views towards the West End. TBK Direct will retain the ground and first floor for their retail operation.
Mark Leeson, Design Director at McBains commented: “Achieving this revised consent for 60-68 The Broadway is a significant step in the realisation of the client’s vision for the site, and we are excited about delivering this high-quality scheme.
“The proposed development will be a fantastic addition to the area, improving the setting of West Hendon Broadway and providing quality housing for the people of Barnet.
“Our design has increased the total number of dwellings from 48 to 53 and ensured that all apartments benefit from dual aspects”.
McBains is providing a full interdisciplinary service consisting of architecture, engineering, cost management and project management to the scheme.
