Poly UK, a subsidiary of international developer Poly Development and Holding Group, has appointed Bennett Construction as the main contractor for the delivery of 257 homes at Plaza Collection in Mill Hill, North West London. It has also simultaneously secured planning permission for an additional 82 homes as part of plot 6b, taking Poly UK’s total number of planned homes to over 700.
Plaza Collection, which has a total GDV of £380m, marks Poly’s entrance into the UK market following decades of success in China, Australia and America. It forms a key part of the wider Millbrook Park transformation – a new 2,000+ home development on the site of the former Inglis Barracks. In total, Poly UK’s portion of the site will deliver over 700 residential units, a new landscaped plaza and 1,400 sq.m of associated commercial and retail space over four different phases. The development will form a much needed gateway between Millbrook Park and Mill Hill East Station.
Plaza Collection will mimic the local Mill Hill vernacular, with attractive mid-rise blocks clad in eye-catching exposed brickwork with characterful gabled roofs. Internally, the homes will be spacious and light-filled, with stunning interiors by multi award-winning architecture and interior design studio Michaelis Boyd. All homes also benefit from balconies.
May Zhao, Executive Director, Poly UK, comments: “As this is Poly’s first residential project in the UK, it is imperative that we have the best-in-class project team, from initial design to delivery, to meet our vision of creating standout homes that raise the bar for design and quality at this strategic development site. Bennett Construction has a first-class track record in delivering large scale projects of this nature, making it an ideal partner to take the first phase of the site forward.”
“We remain highly confident in the London market and look forward to the first homes coming to fruition, simultaneously delivering landscaped public and commercial space that can be enjoyed by the new community that is coming together here.”
