Grahame Park (Phase 1a), NW9
The regeneration of Grahame Park in Colindale is one of the largest regeneration projects in London and will create a whole new neighbourhood of over 3,400 mixed tenure homes, together with community facilities and open green space.
The masterplan is the result of collaboration between PTEa and Levitt Bernstein Associates (LBA). It has been praised by CABE; and won the London Planning Award 2005 for the best conceptual project contributing to London’s future. The approach adopted by PTEa and LBA is to reconnect the estate to the surrounding neighbourhoods by creating clear routes through it, and to make public green space an integral part of the masterplan. The new neighbourhood will also be characterised by a traditional street layout of comparatively low rise homes with private gardens in order to create the sort of environment in which a new community can develop and flourish.
