Telford Homes’ Unity Place site is a significant residential development located in South Kilburn. The project is a partnership between Telford Homes and the London Borough of Brent – and forms part of the second stage of the major South Kilburn Regeneration Programme, set to deliver 2,400 new homes. Telford Homes led the redevelopment of the 3.2 acre site, alongside the Council and a team of architects.

The project has already delivered exceptional benefits to the local community, including 235 high quality, affordable homes for local families - all of which are owned and managed by Brent Council. Alongside the new homes, the development has created extensive landscaped areas for public use, as well as a secure courtyard and children’s play areas for residents. All of the homes are now occupied by families who have settled in and are enjoying the facilities. Throughout the project, engagement with the community has been both well-thought out, innovative and comprehensive; creating several channels for residents to be able to shape the scheme. Green sequence of spaces connecting these historic streets – the placemaking complemented with a new community hub and energy centre that serves the wider South Kilburn estate. Our consultation programme has also created strong social outcomes for residents and the wider community, delivering a long-lasting legacy for South Kilburn and the Borough. The success of this work is evidenced by 72% of local residents voting in favour of continuing regeneration in a recent ballot held by Brent Council.
