Osborne reaches key milestone with Ashbridge ‘Toppin Out’
Ashbridge Street, has reached a key milestone as the highest point of the structure has been completed.
Osborne and Westminster City Council celebrated the achievement with a ‘topping out’ ceremony.
Across sites in Ashbridge Street, Ashmill Street and Cosway Street, 77 new homes will be built with 28 of them being affordable homes.
The income generated by selling the homes at Cosway Street will be reinvested back into affordable housing and community projects in Westminster.
The Ashbridge Street, Ashmill Street and Cosway Street developments are part of the wider Church Street regeneration programme which in total will see the creation of around 1,750 quality homes.
Building much needed new homes in Westminster is a key part of the council’s ambition to create a ‘City for All’, enabling people of all backgrounds, needs and aspirations to live in the city.
Work on the three sites began 2020 and 2021 with all set to be completed by early 2023.
Cllr Heather Acton, Westminster City Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Communities, said: “It’s fantastic to see these sites reach a major milestone in their construction as the homes are much needed in the area. The developments are part of our Church Street regeneration programme to build sustainable and affordable homes for residents in the community, plus more green space and improved facilities.
“We want local people and businesses to remain at the heart of this vibrant area of Westminster and we have been working closely with the local community to shape the plans for the regeneration.”
Andrew Osborne, Chairman of Osborne, said:“Celebrating the Topping Out of Ashbridge Street gives us all the opportunity to reflect on our positive relationships and the journey so far with Westminster City Council.
We are also on site at nearby Ashmill Street, and Cosway Street where a green bio-diverse roof, with photovoltaics will improve the buildings energy efficiency and cut carbon emissions. We are committed in supporting Westminster City Council in creating a ‘City for All’.
