Ballymore has now exchanged contracts with Morrisons, bringing the major supermarket chain to The Brentford Project. Located on Brentford High Street, the 36,000 sq ft unit will open for trade in 2023 and offer local residents high-quality food and groceries.
Taking a central position on Brentford High Street, the new supermarket will include its popular Market Street counters, Nutmeg clothing and a new Barista Bar, as well as basement parking for around 130 cars. The signing marks the latest step in Ballymore’s major mixed-use scheme, which spans 11.8- acres on the southern side of the high street. With works now well underway, The Brentford Project will ultimately deliver 876 homes alongside expansive public realm, and new commercial, retail, leisure and cultural opportunities. Reconnecting the High Street with the waterfront via a series of pedestrianised yards and lanes, Ballymore will also deliver extensions to the Thames path, opening up new waterfront walking routes.
John Mulryan, group managing director at Ballymore, comments: “Our partnership with Morrisons represents a significant milestone in our vision to establish a revitalised high street for Brentford, and one which delivers on everything needed for modern life. Welcoming this market-leading retailer to The Brentford Project will offer the local community convenience and choice, and will be a great addition to the thriving retail scene we are creating across the neighbourhood.”
Morrisons senior asset manager, Georgina French said: “We’ve always been committed to Brentford so we’re delighted to have secured the store’s future as part of Ballymore’s development. This new scheme means that we will retain a presence on Brentford High Street and offer our customers a new look store with improved layout and additional popular and useful services.”
