Westminster City Council and Linkcity
The Fisherton Street development is providing 159 mixed-tenure (65 affordable) studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments across two six-storey buildings, together with 15 family-sized townhouses. It includes new amenities for the wider community: a triple-height, three-court sports hall and community space. It also provides the first section of a green spine, a landscaped pedestrian/cycle route with gardens and play areas that will better link Church Street with Marylebone and re-establish connectivity within the neighbourhood. The development is crucial to Westminster Council’s ‘Fairer Westminster’ strategy, which seeks to ensure that people of all aspirations can live well in the borough. It is creating home ownership opportunities for local people, as well as significantly increasing the provision of social housing.
