South Kilburn Regeneration: A sustainable and lively community


The South Kilburn redevelopment is an extensive fifteen-year project aimed at transforming the neighbourhood into a vibrant and sustainable community. The current estate consists of high-density housing made up of small flats, but the improvements include 2,400 new homes, a new park and updated public areas, a new primary school and health accommodations, modern retail space, and sustainability efforts. The project is expected to be fully completed in the summer of 2029, with some properties completed earlier. Since its inception, the South Kilburn Regeneration programme has won numerous awards, such as the New London Architecture Awards and National Housing Awards ‘Best Design.’ All current residents and tenants are promised a new home in the new development if they wish and have been instrumental in shaping the development into an ideal living and working area. The construction of new housing has made South Kilburn a hot spot for real estate investors and home-buyers. This vibrant neighbourhood will be the perfect place to live in London, whether you are looking to raise a family or are a student.

Enhancing Connectivity and Accessibility


South Kilburn boasts an incredible location, within walking distance to the well-known Regent’s Park, West Hampstead and St John’s Wood. Nestled between affluent neighbourhoods Hampstead and Maida Vale, Kilburn has recently become a sought-after area. Beyond the incredible location, it is a mecca for London’s public transit. The Underground is accessible through the Queens Park, Kilburn Park, and Maida Vale stations. The neighbourhood also aligns with several bus routes, the Overground, the Thameslink, and the Heathrow Express. For example, Paddington is just fifteen minutes away via the Overground^. Streets have been redesigned to be pedestrian-friendly, with designated space for cyclists, pedestrians and greenery. This undoubtedly will foster a flourishing and scenic community. Residents are also able to purchase parking spots at one of the nearby car parks, and there are multiple charging stations located on the property, perfect for those who own electric vehicles.

New Schools and Nursery

The development includes a brand-new school and nursery, ideal for residents with families. The new school includes special teaching areas for food, music, science, and art, along with additional space for children with special needs. The Kilburn Park Junior School will also undergo a transformation to open up space for sports and more green space. This school, along with the new primary and Carlton Infant School, will surround the current South Kilburn Urban Park to produce a lively, vibrant community area and provide outdoor space for recreational activities, open to both students and the broader public. Additionally, within the area, there are a plethora of primary, comprehensive, and private schools. Transport for London offers free transportation for all students under eighteen, and additional grants can be given out if it is especially difficult for students to reach school. If you are a university student, it takes approximately half an hour via public transit to reach the University of London or University of Westminster^.

Sustainable Community in South Kilburn

The redevelopment is made up of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments. Available to residents are a slew of amenities, including communal roof gardens, local gyms, a two-year Zipcar membership, communal workspaces, nearby cafes, and outdoor space for all apartments. Local shops and ample green space will create a bustling atmosphere perfect for some weekend shopping or café hopping. Buildings are designed with sloping roofs, balconies, and bay windows to provide a more residential feel. All buildings will be fitted with high-speed full-fibre broadband so residents have quick and easy access to the internet, an essential in today’s work-from-home society. The regeneration includes modern appliances and state-of-the-art facilities. Construction of a new health centre is also underway, with an additional pharmacy for residents’ convenience or any emergencies. The Brent Council has committed to sustainability efforts and hopes to make South Kilburn the new model for environmentally conscious, affordable, urban living.
