Berkeley’s been given the go-ahead for the next phase of its West End Gate development, gaining planning approval for up to 200 new apartments on a 0.35-acre chunk of W2.
The site sits on the corner of Paddington Green and Newcastle Place, and makes up part of the developer’s wider mixed-use regeneration of the 2.66-acre West End Green site (now called West End Gate). Berkeley acquired the site in 2015, and masterplans were consented back in 2016; the first phase has already sold out; Phase 2 is due to be released this Autumn.
New homes will crop up in buildings designed by architects Piercy & Company, ranging from four to 14 storeys, along with lots of green spaces, a new children’s play area, 64 car parking spaces and storage for nearly 200 bicycles. 32 of the new units are due to be affordable. Turley advised on the planning process.
