Hendon Waterside Wades on
30 March 2014
Estatesgazzette.com

Barratt Homes has gained planning permission for Phase 3b and Phase 3c of its development at Hendon Waterside. Planning permission will see the creation of 298 residential units (181 private and 117 social) as well as 1,245 sq m of commercial space. Overall these plans will be key to the regeneration of the whole area due to the inclusion of buildings on Hendon Broadway within these phases. At present the Hendon Broadway is in need of revitalization, mainly due to its bleak façade. The view from Station Road on the current buildings and the proposed development certainly provide a strong case for regeneration of high streets which appear to have run down buildings, as can be seen below.

Currently construction work is ongoing on Phase 3a of Hendon Waterside (plots highlighted in red below). Phase 3a will see the creation of 361 residential units in buildings up to 26 storeys in height. Work is well under way at these plots, with the building shells of G1 and G2 now complete and experiencing internal work. Plots E1-E4, are seeing ongoing work on their cores.

Good old classic brick wall design, forget about street scenes and improvig the public realm - what about the continually awful West Hendon High st!

That brick wall is one of the worst pieces of architecture I have seen in a long time. Poor West Hendon!

That area of high street seems to be in terminal decay and decline, although the Brent X Cricklewood development may help lift the area.

I hope once the development is finished it will help lift the area and get rid of that wilderness feeling, it's not like it's not populated round there - Cricklewood Broadway is only a mile down the road and it is bustling and feels like a totally different world!

I don't understand how that got that brickwall design next to the shops built, but walking from the shops into the old estate, there is at the moment no access to the new built waterside development (Two different estates)
