McBains has secured planning permission on behalf of PATRIZIA AG – for a new major Build to Rent development in Barking, East London. The 150,000 sq ft commuter-belt site – Trocoll House – will be developed into 92 one bedroom and 106 two bedroom apartments with views over Canary Wharf.
“Trocoll House is PATRIZIA’s first Build to Rent investment in London, and will be one of the most significant developments in Barking to date.Mark Leeson, Operations Director, McBains
Immediately to the north of Barking rail and underground station, the existing Trocoll House site is currently home to a two-storey car park and a six-storey commercial building – comprising commercial offices above a JD Wetherspoon public house, which will be replaced by a new pub unit for them as part of the redevelopment plans.
The existing site will be completely demolished and then redeveloped to make way for the Build to Rent apartments. The scheme will also include a number of amenities – including residential lounge spaces, communal terraces, reading hubs, co-working spaces, games rooms, social areas and a children’s play space for residents.
“As people adapt to the ‘new normal’ and spend more time both living and working at home, they are increasingly wanting more from their living spaces. Trocoll House will deliver this on both fronts. McBains is delighted to continue our track record of providing innovative residences that respond to the ever-changing needs of residents.”Mark Leeson, Operations Director, McBains
