The proposed development of Wembley Greenaway 20-storey tower is set to open up the railway lands parallel to High Road, Wembley for the first time. The scheme, designed by architect JTP, is part of PBSA development by Regal London that is set to cater to the increasing demand for well-located, sustainable student housing in the city.

The tower is set to provide safe and inclusive green space in the area and, if successful in receiving planning approval, construction could begin as early as summer 2024. Paul Eden, co-founder of Regal London, stressed the necessity for meaningful design and decent living standards in the student housing project.

The Wembley development follows Regal London’s Devonshire Place in Southwark, which is currently still in the planning stages. In addition, two more development schemes on Chalk Farm Road in Camden and Orchard Wharf opposite the 02 Arena in Greenwich are planned.

The project is part of the growing focus to create safe and inclusive spaces in the area as well as improving the livability of the area for its inhabitants. It is hoped that this development will be the first of many that will bring life to the surrounding High Road area.

The project also highlights the need for meaningful development that is driven by its inhabitants and neighbourhood. As the housing sector continues to grow and change, developers should remain conscious of the needs of those who will ultimately live and enjoy the space it will provide
