The development will provide a total of 287 residential units, commercial space, and publically accessible open green space.
Lyon House was a former government-let property and was occupied by HMRC until June 2010. Planning permission was granted last night, subject to Greater London Authority (GLA) approval, at Harrow Borough Councilís planning committee meeting.
The development, between St Johnís and Lyon Roads, will provide a total of 287 residential units, of which 49 will be affordable. The scheme will offer a range of accommodation including maisonettes and apartments across seven separate blocks of varying heights. The company has already concluded a development agreement with Metropolitan Housing Trust for the affordable element of the scheme, which is conditional on receipt of full planning consent.
In addition to the housing provision, the scheme will offer approximately 33,000 ft≤ (approx. 3,000 m≤) of modern, flexible commercial space, as well as significant publically accessible open green space close to the town center. It also creates an opportunity to provide a new public realm defining a new destination for social and leisure activities.
Redefine International is already a significant investor in Harrow through its ownership of the St Georgeís Shopping Centre.
