The Westmead scheme will involve the contractor building 65 new affordable homes in a six-storey building on Tavistock Road, as part of the council’s Fairer Westminster strategy.

It will also include improved green space for the wider community and 121 cycle spaces.

The contract follows Willmott’s completion of 112 homes on 300 Harrow Road for the council, which followed the company’s building of 197 homes on the 22-storey Dudley House in Paddington.

Like Harrow Road and Dudley House, the contractor is working with CGL Architects on the Westmead scheme.

Work will start this month and complete towards the end of 2025.

Stewart Brundell, managing director at Willmott Dixon in north London and Northern Homes Counties, said: “We are delighted to be working again with Westminster City Council and CGL Architects for our third project together.

It is fantastic to build on the success of the two previous projects to continue providing high-quality, affordable homes for the residents of Westminster.”
