North Wharf Gardens gets Concert touch
Property consultancy Concert (www.weareconcert.com) announces that the North Wharf Gardens
scheme for Concierge 3 has reached practical completion.
Concert was involved in the pre and post contract works, overseeing the cost consulting aspect of this new build development in Paddington, London. The project is part of the Paddington Basin Masterplan, restoring this unique location between Paddington and Edgeware Road.
The scheme is constructed on a two-storey basement car park with 19 floors sitting on a reinforced concrete frame.
The mixed-use space comprises a significant hotel and hybrid aparthotel development divided between two tenants: a 393-bed Premier Inn and 249 serviced apartments for Wilde by Staycity.
Additionally, there is the 240 cover Bar + Block restaurant as well as a 27,000 sq ft MBS Sixth Form building, a new faculty of the nearby Marylebone Boys’ School. The project work was undertaken as part of an overarching scheme at North Wharf Gardens to create a vibrant, residentially led mixed-use development delivering 485 new homes, affordable business, retail and social and community spaces, including a new primary school, and a new public garden for Paddington.
A theme of connectivity is prevalent across the site, with the garden having been built to provide a link between the mix of uses whilst connecting the development to the wider neighbourhoods to improve the social cohesion in the district.
To ensure a collaborative team approach was adopted, Concert’s attitude throughout embraced cohesive work with the contractor and the client team, incorporating the brand’s values which pride them on bringing harmony to every project by means of working in coordination alongside the whole project team and investing in fully understanding the client’s needs.
