London Borough of Barnet
Colindale Gardens is a mixed use masterplan, combining a variety of private, and social residential units, a school and commercial space. The 19.17ha development opportunity is located close to the Colindale tube station in the London Borough of Barnet. It is the first of the GLA disposal sites and is currently the main training facility for the Metropolitan Police which will relocate to a more compact facility next to the site.
Our Vision for this site and the wider area is to create a community that reflects the traditional London village neighbourhood with a hierarchy of major public spaces and squares, a network of connected streets, new homes, new jobs, public realm, and community facilities set within a high quality environment. The project comprises an overall masterplan for approximately 3,000 residential units.
A central focal avenue connects the site together linking the tube and Colindale Avenue through to Beaufort Park and the FCBStudios designed RAF Museum at Hendon. The scheme establishes a sequence of London Squares that provide a variety of places and addresses along the Avenue, culminating in Peel Park at the heart of the site. A range of building typologies characterise the scheme from two and three storey terrace houses, apartment buildings, mansion blocks onto the Park and taller residential towers that mark key public spaces.
