A new vision for Ebury Bridge Estate.

Located in the heart of central London, the new Ebury Bridge Estate is the biggest delivery of new affordable homes in South Westminster in over 50 years. The scheme will create around 760 high-quality, energy efficient homes, of which 56% will provide affordable housing and the remainder being intermediate ownership and market sales.

Bouygues UK is delivering the first phase of the development for Westminster City Council, continuing its strong working relationship with the London Borough. The first phase of this ambitious scheme comprises the first two residential blocks of 16 and 17 stories, with a total of 226 units, and the concierge for the entire scheme. These units consist of 110 market tenure homes, 100 homes for social housing and 16 intermediate ownership homes.

This phase of the scheme will also include the first of five outdoor squares. These spaces will reflect a contemporary approach to the traditional London square, with each benefiting from sunlight throughout the day.

Westminster City Council’s driver for the scheme is to make it an exemplar model for future estate regeneration, setting new standards where exceptional added social value is at the core. The wider regeneration plans will see the full redevelopment of the of the existing 1930s estate and the creation of new high-quality, sustainable homes.

It will aim to be an almost car-free development, with disabled car parking only. Both pedestrian and cycle transport will be a top priority with more than 2,000 cycle spaces for residents.

With so many prominent landmarks in the area, the council wants estate residents to benefit from excellent views. Around 90% of all homes will benefit from at least two different aspects across the London skyline.

As well as 780 homes, the overall scheme will feature a new community hub, nursery and fitness centre for residents and visitors. Plus, there will be four high-quality public squares created with water and play features. The green spaces will have enhanced lighting for security and an on-site management team.

An extended high street with new local shops and cafés has also been approved and there will be new places to work including flexible workspace on Ebury Bridge Road and at the new northern gateway.  


Energy efficiency and reducing the estate’s carbon footprint are cornerstones of the scheme. The newly built homes will use 90% less carbon than the existing estate thanks to ground source heat pumps and grey water recycling will be used for household functions, in line with Westminster City Council’s plans to be carbon net zero by 2040.

Around 270 new trees will be planted, as well as the retention of mature existing trees. Alongside this, there will be new flowerbeds and plants, forging natural havens for the local community and increasing biodiversity.
