Pilot Shop News!
The project’s Pilot Shop at 45 Walm Lane is now closed as the landlord of the premises has found a new commercial tenant.
New Windows on Willesden Green had secured short-term access to this formerly vacant property and transformed it – with the help of designer Kieren Jones and trainees from the College of North West London – into a one-stop-shop where people could come and find out about the project and from which we ran workshops in the run up to Christmas last year.
We’re happy to say that the reactivation of the empty space for ‘meanwhile’ use has had its desired effect: it has attracted a new business into an empty shop allowing it to act as commercial premises once again.
Our project base will be relocating in due course to:
1-12 Queens Parade, Willesden High Road, NW2 5HT
