Led by Brent coun­cil, the re­gen­er­a­tion of South Kilburn es­tate stretches from Kilburn High Road, down Kilburn Park Road, up Malvern Road to Queen’s Park sta­tion and then along the south of the rail­way line. It is a huge area that will see 2,400 new homes built be­fore the project is com­plete in 2029, with 1,200 ex­ist­ing res­i­dents promised new homes.

Lead­ing ar­chi­tects in­clud­ing Lif­schutz David­son Sandi­lands, Ali­son Brooks and Feilden Clegg Bradley are in­volved. Houses and flats built along Cam­bridge Av­enue, where a new pedes­trian and cy­cle route has been cre­ated, show what can be achieved. Kilburn

Camerons Stiff & Co let­tings agent, Philip Jo­hal, says it costs about £100 a month less to rent a one-bed­room flat in Kilburn than in more fash­ion­able Queen’s Park. How­ever, he points out that some renters pre­fer Kilburn be­cause the trans­port links are bet­ter.
