Octavia provides stunning new homes in Wembley

Interior at Elizabeth House, Wembley

Work has completed on the £15m Elizabeth House, Octavia’s new 13-storey residential led, mixed-use development in Wembley, North London, providing 69 homes for private sale (including 21 Help to Buy), 21 shared ownership properties, and 25 home available for affordable rent as well as 600 sq m of ground floor commercial space.

This major redevelopment on 341 - 345 High Road, built by Willmott Dixon has created a landmark building for the area with its unique arch shape, which overhand the high street and provide a stylish backdrop to Wembley Stadium.

“The design demonstrates a well-considered approach to the varied and changing urban context of Wembley High Road and the wider area.” Greater London Authority

Each apartment has a balcony with those on the north side of the building orientated for dramatic views back to the stadium, and those on the south benefitting from views back across North London to the city and the west end and the scheme meets Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) Level 4.

Dave Woods, Development Director at Octavia said: “We are really pleased to have completed this iconic building, which will provide yet more much needed, quality housing to local people on a range of incomes”.

Demand for the shared ownership and private homes has proved high with limited availability left. Visit www.elizabeth-house.co.uk for more details.

Earlier in the year Octavia and Willmott Dixon staff abseiled down the building frontage to raise £3,500 for charity including Octavia’s sister community charity - The Octavia Foundation.
