Upper Longcross Progress
Following the planning consent for Upper Longcross, there has been considerable progress on the development, with new entrances on Chobham Lane, the construction of the first phase of housing, and the imminent delivery of the first part of Chobham Common being the main visible signs.
See residential and commercial progress below.
108 dwellings comprising 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5-bed homes are now under construction and the first occupiers are expected to move into their new homes very soon. For further information, see: crestnicholson.com
In line with the consented outline application, we are currently preparing a reserved matters planning application for the second residential phase, which will provide 90 apartments in two buildings of 4-5 storeys. These will be 1 and 2-bed apartments.
A planning application for the Discovery Building was submitted in May. Providing 1,265 sqm of floor space split over three floors together with two terrace areas for external seating, it will be a mixed-use facility that could accommodate:
- a coffee shop, delicatessen and bakery
- commercial office space
- community studio space
The Discovery building has been designed to offer flexible accommodation so that it can be easily adapted to different uses in the future. This will allow the building to evolve with the wider development of Longcross.
