Developer reveals ambitious plans as maiden London scheme nears completion
Developer Astir is on course to deliver its luxury West Hampstead Central scheme in 2023, the firm has revealed.
West Hampstead Central is a development of 94 high-spec one- and two-bedroom apartments in the heart of West Hampstead village, on West End Lane, adjacent to the Underground, Thameslink and Overground stations. The scheme, Astir’s first, will bring forward two buildings inspired by the area’s elegant mansion blocks that mirror the historic local vernacular.
West Hampstead Central has been designed in conjunction with an award-winning team led by Chapman Taylor Architects and Johnson Naylor Interior Design and will feature panoramic landscaped rooftop gardens with flexible office and retail space on the ground and first floors. West Hampstead Central is being developed by Astir in partnership with Gamuda, a global property and infrastructure company based in Malaysia.
Astir was formed in 2017 by a team with more than 100 years of combined residential development experience having been involved in the delivery of many of the capital’s most notable large scale residential developments and regeneration schemes. Astir’s vision, “Making Living Better” underpins the delivery of high-quality homes in exceptional places across London.
Nic Simpkin, co-founder of Astir, said: “We’re delighted that we’re on track to complete Astir’s first London development in 2023. The wonderfully sustainable location in the heart of the thriving and artisanal culture that is West Hampstead has attracted enormous market interest with sales currently well ahead of expectations, proving the long-standing importance of location.”
“Our mission now is to replicate the success of this scheme across London. We have the backing of Gamuda, a large, listed infrastructure and development business from Malaysia and we are in discussions with landowners and agents around further residential-led schemes across the capital, but of course we would welcome enquiries from any ambitious individuals or organisations who would like to see their investment reach its full potential.”
“We will be releasing more news about West Hampstead Central and our second, exciting scheme in London over coming weeks and months.”
