A collection of derelict buildings in Cricklewood have been knocked down to make way for new homes.

Demolition is nearing completion at the site, off Cricklewood Lane, where Fairview New Homes will build a development of 122 apartments.

The development, to be named The Broadway, will include 3 medium-sized business start-up units at ground-floor level.

Jim Holliday, Sales and Marketing Director for Fairview, said: “The buildings on this site were in a poor condition and were widely regarded as a local eyesore.

“Their removal marks the start of a much-needed regeneration programme which will give a new lease of life to the site.

“Demolition is now almost complete and, when the site is cleared, we will start work on The Broadway – where our first residents are set to move into their homes in late summer 2018.

“Our development will bring new homes to the area and replace a run-down old collection of buildings with a new building which will improve the street scene of Cricklewood Lane.”

The Broadway will comprise a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments. A total of 101 homes will be released for sale on the open market, while 21 will be made available as affordable housing.

The 0.64-hectare development site is located between 112 and 132 Cricklewood Lane, next to the Virgin Active gym and 200m from Cricklewood station.

Fairview will make community contributions totalling more than £1.4m as part of the development, and will take on 14 apprentices to work on the project.
