Third Time Lucky For Chesterfield House

New plans have been floated for Chesterfield House near Wembley Central underground station, in the London borough of Brent, the third such high-rise design for the site since 2001.

The latest scheme will supercede a previous one designed by CZWG for an outrageously glittery hotel that looked like it escaped from Las Vegas. The new proposals will see the existing building that stands on the site retained and converted with an extension constructed perpendicular to it that will create a T shaped footprint.

The T has then been split up by the architect into five elements thanks to the use of recessed areas and varying roof levels so each appears as individual towerette, with the heights ranging from a maximum of 51.4 metres to 36.7 metres. The floor counts vary from 12 to 17 storeys.

Within the scheme there will mostly student accommodation. This consists of 95 cluster flats, and 270 studio apartments. 1,310 square metres of retail are also included, but this is largely a transfer from the existing shopping area that is already on the site.

Streamdale Investments Ltd is developing the latest version of the scheme, with the architectural work coming from Contemporary Design Solutions.
