Brent could get new commercial property build


A new commercial property development has been proposed for London’s Edgware road in Brent, Skyscrapernews has reported.

The mixed-use development will include 462 new apartments, retail and community space, and an energy centre.

Capitol Way, if approved, will feature a 19-storey tower and a series of six-storey blocks.

According to Skyscrapernews the build will use bricks at street level, feature timber in upper levels and the buildings will have white facades and inset balconies.

As is common with modern commercial property, the design by Dunnett Craven will incorporate eco-friendly elements, such as photovoltaic cells and a biomass generator.

Despite weakened investment, a number of significant developments could also soon feature on London’s skyline.

Construction of the Shard of Glass- planned to be UK’s tallest building – is now underway after a significant investment by Qatari investors.

And future designs for Battersea Power Station, should they get the go ahead, will also create a further landmark feature.
