Demolition works at 19-27 Young Street are due to finish towards the end of August and enabling works are due to commence on site, reports developer Grainger.

The main contractor will be retaining the site hoarding and carrying out other site
establishment activities following clearance of the site by John F Hunt and prior to
commencing enabling works.

Following this, the team will begin working on the foundations during October
with the basement and ground floor slab formed by May 2016.

A crane will also be installed on the site in November 2015 and remain in use
throughout the build. To facilitate the installation, a temporary 12 hour road
closure similar to the one in April for the demolition phase, will be required.

Brickwork will be completed towards the end of 2016 and it is anticipated that all
construction work will be completed by Autumn 2017.

19-27 Young Street in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has received planning consent.

The development for Grainger plc has been designed primarily for the private rented sector market providing high quality long term private and purpose built rented properties.

The elegant Young Street scheme is located just off Kensington High Street and will include 53 one, two and three bed homes, with a gym, high tech residents’ club lounge, cinema, and business suite. The basement level will have car and bike parking and storage facilities. The proposed development will replace an existing under-utilised 1960’s car park.

The design approach is based on Assael’s comprehensive understanding of the sites surrounding area. The height of the development is designed to rise along Young Street, from five storeys in the south to eight storeys in the north and to compliment the nearby traditional houses, busy Kensington High Street and one of London’s oldest squares. A courtyard will feature at the heart of the development and create an aesthetic amenity space for residents while improving the aspect of those existing properties overlooking the site.

Assael Director, John Badman, commented: “We are currently working on a number of projects that incorporate build-to-let accommodation at a scale that brings operational efficiencies for clients and their investors. Our design for Young Street is seen as an elegant addition to the neighbourhood, with a sensitive approach to scale mediating between the residential houses of Kensington Square and civic retail centre of Kensington High Street.“
