The attractive development in Swallowdale Lane, Hemel Hempstead, will include 87 one-and-two bedroom flats for affordable and intermediate rent. The area is convenient for shops, green space and public transport as well as being close to Hemel Hempstead town centre.
The Viking House development is part-funded by the Homes & Communities Agency and Dacorum Borough Council and will be built on the site of a former office block, with demolition work beginning in December 2016.
The outdated building will be replaced with contemporary architecture. The entrance on Redbourn Road will lead into a courtyard surrounded by three four-storey blocks, rising to a nine-storey block creating a ‘landmark’ corner building.
The central landscaped space will create a focus for the development and be a shared area for the residents to enjoy. Click on the images below for an artists impression and plan of the development.
