Important canalside regeneration project for Harefield coming soon

The vacant Royal Quay site in Harefield is set for regeneration, thanks to a joint residential development project coming soon. The area adjoining Coppermill Lock will undergo redevelopment shortly by Oakford Homes.

The project will see the creation of new townhouses and conversions of existing buildings into luxury apartments to provide in excess of 65 residential homes, over three separate phases of build.

The site is 3.5 acres in total, which comprises 30,000 sq ft of existing commercial floor space and 1.6 acres of development land. Planning permission has been granted for the conversion of the Long Room into 30 apartments, the Manor House into 40 apartments and construction is about to commence on the development of the vacant land.

These canalside homes, like any waterside property can be expected to command a premium, as the homes will offer purchasers a very desirable lifestyle and picturesque year-round views.

Chris Coates explains how this project will benefit the local economy: “It’s expected that Royal Quay will bring an influx of wealth to the area from the new residents who choose to live here, whilst regenerating this stretch of canal, once complete.”

He adds: “This project is very exciting for Oakford Homes, being the largest we have completed to date. It also holds a special place for me personally, having worked in this area before. I am pleased to be returning in order to contribute to the regeneration of this attractive canal way.”

The development will launch its first phase in the Autumn from the Long Room on Summerhouse Lane. This local listed former-warehouse is being converted into thirty 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, each with views over the canal and their own parking.
