Plans for 600 homes for students at Brent Cross Town have been published today. Our online exhibition for Plot 25 is open now, and you can see the designs, read the context and tell us your thoughts until Sunday 20 December.
Due to be finished in 2024, this building will be one of the town’s first. It will border Neighbourhood Square, a green and active meeting place at the centre of Brent Cross Town’s new high street. Comprising three blocks from nine to 23 storeys high, the design by Glenn Howells Architects responds to the site with a varied palette of materials. Facade textures ranging from brown brick to reconstituted stone will lend each block a strong architectural identity while complementing surrounding buildings that are still to come.
