Fairview New Homes has released computer-generated images of the new Edition development.
Fairview New Homes is building a development of 395 homes on the site off Colindale Avenue, which it acquired in early 2013 from the British Library.
Building work began in spring this year and Fairview is now preparing to release the first homes for sale in the new year.
Fairview Sales and Marketing Director, Jim Holliday, said: “Work is progressing well on site and we wanted to give a preview of how the homes will look before we release the first properties for sale in the new year.
“The site’s history as home of the British Newspaper Library has inspired every part of our development, from its name, Edition, to the names of the streets and property designs, which have all been named after newspapers.
“The site’s past will also be evident in the design of our new Marketing Suite, which is newspaper-themed throughout.
“We look forward to sharing more details of the homes we are building when the development is launched in January.”
Fairview has already built more than 1,100 apartments on two other sites off Colindale Avenue, with its latest scheme, Varsity at Pulse, now complete.
Mr Holliday added: “We are committed to playing a continuing role in the regeneration of Colindale and, having had a presence locally for more than 5 years, our team know the area very well.
“The development of Edition is good news for Colindale as it will bring more than £3.5m to the area in planning contributions, and we will also be employing six apprentices as part of the project.
“We look forward to seeing work at the development continue to progress.”
As part of the development of Edition, Fairview will make a £3.4m payment through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) to support the area and local infrastructure.
An additional £69,000 will be contributed as part of the Section 106 planning agreement with Barnet Borough Council, with £40,000 allocated to be spent on improvements to the pedestrian areas close to the development.
