The regeneration of the former Grahame Park Estate in Colindale is being led by Genesis Housing Group, working in conjunction with the London Borough of Barnet and Countryside.

3,000 new homes are being provided in an 18 year programme.  One third of the homes will be for affordable rent and shared ownership: the balance are being developed for outright sale to generate cross-subsidy for the affordable homes.  Around 1,000 existing homes are being retained and refurbished.  New shops, community facilities and parks will also be created as part of the masterplan for New Hendon Village.

We have completed the first phase of new homes and work is well advanced on the second phase, comprising 319 new homes designed by Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects.  The homes are being built in crescents around the parkland and ponds on the west side of the open space at Grahame Park.  
The open space has been upgraded to form a large green hub of ecological biodiversity  and  amenity  where  residents  and  the  wider  community  can  play  and  relax.  The ponds have been remodelled to include features such as water-edge decks and bridges.  Drainage is sustainable and there is wetland planting to decrease the possibility of flooding.

A new community facility known as the Green Top Centre has been completed.
