Yardhouse starts on site in West London with JJ Rhatigan appointment

JJ Rhatigan has been selected for our Yardhouse scheme in London, which we're developing in partnership with Women's Pioneer Housing, Bridges Fund Management and City Developments Limited. The project will deliver co-living homes and affordable women-only housing in White City, west London.

The existing buildings, which host WPH’s headquarters and 36 affordable homes, will be replaced with a 16-storey tower with two six-storey wings.

The tower will contain 209 co-living apartments, while the lower-rise blocks will provide 60 affordable homes for single women and a new office for WPH. There will be a publicly accessible cafe and gym at the ground level. The WPH office will occupy the ground floor and the one-bedroom flats will sit above, centred around a shared terrace.

HUB and co-developer Bridges Fund Management secured an £88m forward funding deal with Singapore-based real estate developer City Developments Ltd to deliver the scheme.

HUB managing director Damien Sharkey said: “Yardhouse is a prime example for next-generation co-living, where we are delivering much-needed new homes and amenities, office space and improved public realm.

“The appointment of JJ Rhatigan is a huge step forward in delivering our vision.”
