Glenn Howells Architects and Maccreanor Lavington also working on 12-acre project
Work has begun on a 900-home scheme in west London designed by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Glenn Howells Architects and Maccreanor Lavington.
The 12-acre Brentford Project is a mixed-use regeneration scheme located at the point where the River Brent flows into the Thames.
Dublin-based privately owned developer Ballymore is behind the project which will feature yards and lanes connecting Brentford High Street with the waterfront, which will host restaurants, cafes and pubs.
Of the 876 homes 80 will be affordable, comprising of social rent, affordable rent and shared ownership, overseen by Hounslow council.
The first homes are due to be completed in 2021, with the overall scheme – a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom properties – to be completed by 2027.
John Mulryan, Ballymore’s group managing director, said the scheme would restore lost connections in the area.
“The Brentford Project will revive this well-connected pocket of London to create a place not just for people to live but also to experience and enjoy,” he added.
Ballymore has recently topped out the 776-home Wardian residential scheme in Docklands, also designed by Glenn Howell Architects, whose two towers rise to 50 and 55 storeys.
