Greenland Group is proposing to demolish the existing four storey Hertsmere House office building and replace this with the erection of a new 67 storey residential tower. Internal amenity space on the centre floors and commercial floorspace comprising retail and cafes are also proposed.

The key benefits for local communities include:

  • Approximately 3,750 square meters of amenity space and open space
  • Dedicated Children’s Play Space – circa 900 square meters of communal children’s playspace will be provided
  • 869 units of new housing, including affordable homes
  • Section 106 contributions to local schools, doctors’ surgeries and other local infrastructure
  • A much improved design that addresses the concerns previously raised by Historic England
  • Local jobs created both during demolition and construction, plus additional employment opportunities in the new commercial floorspace
  • New residents and visitors in the area will generate a substantial contribution to the local economy through additional local spending.
