Berkeley’s, The Green Quarter, Southall is celebrating its bio-diverse success in National Tree Week.

The Green Quarter is one of West London’s most exciting canalside destinations. At 88 acres, it is one of London’s most significant regeneration projects.

With nature at its heart, the development will comprise 13 acres of parkland, podium gardens and over 1.5km of canal frontage – a rarity in London. 

Situated in zone 4, adjacent to Southall Crossrail station (Elizabeth Line), The Green Quarter is also superbly located for reaching the hustle and bustle of Central London, Heathrow Airport and beyond.

The recently opened resident facilities include a fully equipped gym, cinema room, meeting room, lounge and co-working space. Just a short stroll across the Central Gardens parkland leads to Parkside Yards, the new onsite hub providing a café, organic grocery store, tree nursery to explore, creative arts hub, ceramics studio, lifestyle store and more.

At Berkeley’s The Green Quarter, a tree nursery has been created, consisting of 600 air-potted trees from seven different species that will all, once mature, be planted around the development to help boost the local area’s biodiversity, air quality and sustainability.

Details of the bio-diverse development are below:

  • In partnership with London Wildlife Trust, a tree nursery has been planted at Parkside Yards, which includes 600 air-pottery trees. 
  • The integrated nature trail allows visitors to explore and learn about all seven different types of trees, including silver birch, wild cherry, black alder, lime, hornbeam, crab apple and London plane.
  • Once matured, these trees will be planted around Berkeley’s development, creating habitats for wildlife, improving air quality and helping to foster a greener and more sustainable future for generations to come.
  • Upon completion, Berkeley aims to deliver a 93 per cent biodiversity net gain and 13 acres of parkland for residents and wildlife to enjoy.
  • Nearly 50 per cent of the site will comprise open green space, and close to two-thirds of the homes will overlook water or nature.
  • In partnership with London Wildlife Trust, over 2,500 new trees are being planted across two parks within the development, including 600 air-potted in a new tree nursery with an integrated nature trail at Parkside Yards. Minet Country Park is adjacent to the site, and new routes are planned to create improved access over the canal.
