Hill launches £70m landmark Harrow One in London - redefining the heart of the town centre
Sleek new apartments boast city views and quick connections into Central London
HONG KONG, 18 June 2020 – A striking, new landmark development, Harrow One, will be launched by award-winning housebuilder Hill this month, which will include 119 new homes for private sale across two impressive buildings, an internal courtyard and a community hub for residents and locals – bringing a new dimension to Harrow’s town centre, one of London’s regeneration hotspots.
The new homes are being delivered by Hill and Origin, a leading Housing Association in London and Hertfordshire, and marks the companies’ second joint venture in Harrow. The £70 million development is part funded by the GLA, which has committed £25 million from the Mayor of London’s £600 million Housing Zones initiative, and will support and benefit from the vast regeneration programme in the borough that will continue to enhance the quality of life in the town centre and surrounding areas. This includes a £1.75 billion investment project, which will see new homes, two new schools and 3,000 additional jobs created in Harrow by 2026.
Available with the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, all of the apartments in Harrow One will benefit from private balconies with scenic views of the London skyline along with nearby open green spaces, the ecology park and wooded areas, while inside, each of the apartments will include full height windows that flood the rooms with natural light. Sleek energy efficient appliances, high gloss kitchen units and underfloor heating will also feature throughout the high-quality homes. The buildings will wrap around a beautifully landscaped courtyard garden and will also have modern, energy saving features such as photovoltaic panels on the roofs, with efficient communal heating plants serving each of the apartments.
Rebecca Littler, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Hill, comments: “Harrow One is the latest exciting chapter being delivered by Hill and Origin, creating new homes and a new focus in the heart of the town. Harrow has already been transformed by the borough's regeneration programme, with new public spaces, shops, restaurants and a popular high street. One fifth of the borough is dedicated to green spaces, which also makes Harrow a very appealing place to live, with the advantage of excellent transport connections to central London. People buying a home at Harrow One will benefit from the continued investment by the council in jobs and new facilities such as schools, along with the superb higher educational facilities on offer."
Situated on St John’s Road, Harrow One’s location provides residents with the best of both worlds; city living with access to plenty of green space and sports facilities, as well as a bustling high street and an array of boutique shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and entertainment options. The area also plays host to two shopping centres, while just a 17-minute walk away lies Harrow-on-the-Hill with its historic, cobbled streets and views over Wembley Stadium’s arch towards the City. Harrow also boasts a strong educational offering that includes The Media, Art and Design Campus for the University of Westminster and Harrow College, which is Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’.
For residents looking to travel outside of Harrow, both the Metropolitan line at Harrow-on-the-Hill station and Harrow Bus Station are less than a five-minute walk away, providing quick links into Central London. Both Baker Street and Oxford Circus for example are just a 20-minute tube ride away. For those who prefer pedal-power, there will be approximately 400 cycle storage spaces available to encourage environmentally friendly travel.
The scheme will also include commercial spaces and an internal courtyard for residents to enjoy. The newly built Victoria Hall, a community hub annexing both buildings, will also provide a welcome space to bring residents together to gather, learn and encourage neighbourliness.
Harrow One includes 119 studios, one and two-bedroom apartments for private sale.
Simon Scott, Assistant Director, Commercial and Property Marketing for Origin Housing, comments: “Harrow One represents a continuation of our effective partnership with Hill, delivering fantastic homes and public facilities. We are pleased to be able to offer more much needed shared ownership homes in the London Borough of Harrow - an area we have long had a strong connection with as an organisation.”
The apartments at Harrow One are launching on 13th June, with prices for the studio apartments starting from £285,000 (about HKD 2.77 million). The one-bedroom apartments start from £375,500, while the two-bedroom apartments are available for £447,500.
