Willmott Dixon lands third Westminster affordable homes contract

Willmott Dixon has secured its latest residential project for Westminster City Council - a £29m scheme to build 65 new affordable homes on Tavistock Road as part of the council’s Fairer Westminster strategy. 

Work on the six-storey building, known as Westmead, will start this month and complete towards the end of 2025.

The contract follows Willmott Dixon’s recent completion of 112 homes on 300 Harrow Road for the council, which itself followed the company’s building of 197 homes on the 22-storey Dudley House in Paddington.  

Like at Harrow Road and Dudley House, Willmott Dixon is working with CGL Architects to continue the close collaboration the two companies have working with Westminster City Council.

Stewart Brundell, managing director at Willmott Dixon in north London and Northern Homes Counties, said: “We are delighted to be working again with Westminster City Council and CGL Architects for our third project together. 

“It is fantastic to build on the success of the two previous projects to continue providing high-quality, affordable homes for the residents of Westminster.”

Councillor Matt Noble, cabinet member for regeneration and renters, added: “We’re really pleased to be working with Willmott Dixon again after the recent completion of our 300 Harrow Road scheme. 

“The Westmead development will see 65 much needed genuinely affordable homes in the north of the borough. This continues our drive to building a Fairer Westminster for everyone.”
