Ardmore have been selected to build the first 413 homes at Transport for London’s housing project directly beside Kidbrooke station.
Phase 2 will follow at a later date taking total homes to 619.
The project is a joint venture between TfL and Housing Association Notting Hill Genesis.
Of the 619 eventual homes, less than a quarter get close to being truly affordable, with 310 private homes, 157 shared ownership and 152 “affordable rent”.
Groundworks have been ongoing over the past year, and we should see housing blocks rising soon.
The site sits directly over the tracks from Berkeley Homes’ Kidbrooke Village, which will now feature over 5,000 homes.
Kidbrooke Square has the A2 and A2 slip roads to the north which TfL predict will see an increase in congestion when Silvertown Tunnel opens a couple of miles to the north.
That projection was made before Kidbrooke Village masterplan was increased from below 4,000 to over 5,000 homes and 619 approved at Kidbrooke Square.
