The historic RAF Uxbridge site is being transformed into St Andrew's Park, a residential community of up to 1,340 new homes, complete with school, theatre, park and commercial space, focused around a Grade II-listed mansion, Hillingdon House. The development will effectively extend Uxbridge town centre and presents a unique opportunity. Located on the former RAF Uxbridge site, the houses and apartments at St Andrew’s Park will enjoy a tranquil location with connections into central London in fewer than 50 minutes from nearby Uxbridge tube station. As well as the housing, 15% of which will be affordable, the development – which respects the heritage and ecology of the site – will provide 18ha of public space, a 1,200-seat theatre, a museum, doctor’s surgery, 90-bed hotel, primary school, care home, and 20,000sq m of commercial space. The RAF station was a vital base in both world wars, but is most recognised for its role in the Battle of Britain, when it was home to No 11 Group RAF, responsible for the aerial defence of London and the south-east of England. The whole development – by VSM, a joint venture between Vinci and St Modwen – will be delivered over seven phases. The first phase is on-site, with Persimmon starting the construction of 451 homes in December 2012. The first of these is due to be completed in April this year. Charles Church, part of Persimmon, is also developing 56 homes to the north east of the site, which will be completed by the end of 2014, with many already sold.
