Harrow View East, as the former industrial complex is known, is located within the ‘Heart of Harrow’ Housing Zone

Barratt London has announced it is developing the 30-acre former Kodak site in Harrow with joint venture partner housing association the Hyde Group, the second time the pair have worked together on a project.

Harrow View East, as the former industrial complex is known, forms part of the council-approved 20 year regeneration strategy.

The site has outline planning permission for a large scale mixed-use residential-led development, providing 1,150 new homes, including affordable homes. It will also deliver 350,000ft² of employment space, senior living facilities, community centre and leisure uses.

In October the Barratt/Hyde partnership secured nearby Harrow Square; a scheme of 318 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, and a 1,450m² library at its centre.

Matt Calladine, Barratt London’s regional land & development director at Barratt London, said: “The acquisition provides both Barratt London and Hyde an excellent opportunity to deliver new homes within the London Borough of Harrow, following the recent success of the former Royal Mail sorting office at Harrow-on-the Hill.”

Mike Johnson, Hyde Group’s development director for London and Kent, said the acquisition was “a prime example of how partnership working can deliver many of the new homes that the people of London and the South East so desperately need”.
