Another Offices-to-flats Conversion: South Harrow

buildingsiteBovis House, the well-known landmark office building on the Northolt Road in South Harrow appeared in the council’s planning portal recently.

According to the documents submitted (application P/3976/14), the developer wants to convert the offices to 101 self-contained flats, spread across four floors. The plans show everything from odd-shaped studio flats, through to accessible flats. Here’s a snapshot of part of the plan:


There’s just one comment so far on the portal, from a resident objecting to the development.

The plan shows 75 parking spaces – unusually high, but then the space is already there – with landscaping around the development. Also included are secure parking spaces for motorcycle as well as cycle storage. A number of parking spaces are ‘active’ – meaning they will be for use of electric vehicles, and will be able to recharge them. A number of other spaces are flagged as ‘passive’ meaning that cabling in installed, ready for future expansion.

    converting to flats seems a good idea . harrow has several 4 story office blocks been vacant 10-20 yrs some like bradstowe house and library an eyesore.been vacant 20 yrs . but unfortunately when these offices are converted to flats the affordable homes title doesnt exist and they are priced very high with expensive kitchens and luxury bathrooms. Typical example flats above morrisons
