The development is already home to classic car entrepreneur, Duke of London, alongside popular eatery Santa Maria Pizzeria, and onsite bakery and restaurant, Rye by the Water.

In 2023, more exciting new commercial tenants will be announced with eateries and shops such as the deli and foodstore Sam’s Larder, brasserie-style restaurant Sam’s Riverside, Prêt a Manger and Morrisons already confirmed. 

Transforming 11.8 acres along the southern half of the town’s high street, the development will deliver an eclectic mix of dining, entertainment and shopping amenities, with over 5 acres dedicated to landscaping and public realm. Opening up the waterfront for residents and the local community, Ballymore is also set to revitalise two docks, creating new riverfront hubs dedicated to dining, socialising and shopping.

The Brentford Project is to become a truly walkable neighbourhood, offering everything needed for a great quality of life within close proximity. Waterfront Square will provide a fresh space for public events, performances, and outdoor markets on the riverside, celebrating and adding to Brentford’s well-established community feel. Meanwhile, Workhouse Dock, an existing but neglected mooring on the River Brent, will be rejuvenated with 24-hour moorings, and lined with restaurants, pubs, and cafés with new public realm including tiered seating terraces – a space to relax, spend time and enjoy life on the water.

The Brentford Project draws on the area’s heritage, inside and out. Echoing Brentford’s industrial past, features include cantilevered terraces to many apartments, alongside materials such as wood, concrete and iron. Contemporary open-plan apartment layouts and floor to ceiling glazing have been thoughtfully designed to maximise the far-reaching views.
