Construction work starts today on Almacantar’s mixed tenure housing and retail development on Edgware Road.
Galliford Try has been appointed as the main contractor. Set where Edgware Road, Maida Vale, Little Venice and St John’s Wood meet, Lyons Place has been designed by Farrells, whose London office is also located in the neighbourhood.
The project consists of 76 apartments and townhouses, of which 47 will be affordable homes, with landscaped courtyards, balconies and terraces. In addition, the scheme will also include the reinstatement of a petrol station, which will feature art deco-inspired petrol pumps.
Rupesh Varsani, Development Manager at Almacantar said: “Lyons Place will provide high quality, well designed, new private and affordable housing in Westminster, and offer a significant catalyst for the re-emergence of this Central London location, right on the doorstep of Little Venice, between Regents’ Park and Paddington Station.”
This is Almacantar’s fourth project in the construction phase, joining Centre Point, Marble Arch Place and Southbank Place.
