High-end homes plan for Hayes site

Developer London Square has bought the Grade II-listed former Bromley offices of union Unite for £20 million and is planning a development of up to 23 homes.
The firm has instructed Formation Architects to create a scheme for the 6.36 acre site, on West Common Road, Hayes.
Plans are expected to see the renovation of the listed office building Hayes Court and its conversion into apartments, as well as the creation of family homes in the site’s landscaped grounds.
London Square said proposals were likely to be submitted to Bromley Council later this year.
Managing director Brian Betsy said the scheme offered an “excellent opportunity” to convert former offices that were no longer fit for purpose into homes, reflecting the coalition government’s current policy.
“The Hayes area has a lot to offer families, young professionals and downsizers, with good transport links into the City and West End,” he said.
“This latest acquisition fits in with our ethos of creating homes in first-class locations.”
Hayes Court is London Square’s ninth acquisition since it was set up three years ago by former Barratt regional chairman Adam Lawrence.
