This September, a new collection of town centre apartments will come to the market at the waterfront neighbourhood, The Brentford Project. Following its successful launch in September 2019, developer Ballymore has brought forward the latest opportunity to live in this exciting new quarter, in a new green phase for the development.
Positioned on the doorstep of west London’s famed parks and green spaces, this new collection of two-bedroom apartments at The Brentford Project benefit from river views across to Syon Park and beyond. A focal point for the development, the newly-released apartments will also overlook the beautiful gardens of the deconsecrated Grade II* Listed St Lawrence’s Church on site, which is set to be reimagined with tranquil landscaping for residents and locals.
Located at the meeting point of the River Thames and River Brent, The Brentford Project will see the transformation of 11.8 acres in the very heart of the town. Alongside delivering 876 new homes, the major regeneration scheme will revitalise the southern half of the town’s high street and reconnect it with the waterfront, establishing a thriving mix of dining, entertainment and shopping amenities and public spaces.
The first apartments to come forward within the new building, which will also act as the home for the residents’ club and concierge service, residents are perfectly placed to take advantage of the lifestyle and wellness facilities on their doorstep.
Reflecting Brentford’s green, leafy surroundings, residents and visitors will be welcomed into an ‘Arrival Garden’. Inside, a tranquil retreat that has thoughtful landscaping and covered walkways and porticos, alongside a residents’ outdoor pool and woodland play space surrounded by mature trees. The Brentford Project will also house ‘The Wick’, a unique wellness offering for residents, including a state-of-the-art gym, spa and treatment rooms overlooking the gardens.
Meanwhile, St Lawrence’s Church itself – a historic piece of Brentford’s past with aspects of the building dating back to the 15th century, designed by architect Thomas Hardwick – will become a culinary and cultural hub for the community, and play host to pop-ups, events and shows.
The architectural practice, McCullough Mulvin Architects, has overseen the architectural design of the development’s new residential building and the revitalisation of St Lawrence’s Church – adopting a thoughtful approach to integrating this heritage gem into the wider vision for the new neighbourhood. Alongside the invigorated stretch of the high street a series of pedestrianised lanes and yards will help to reconnect the high street with the waterfront.
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. Workhouse Dock’s connection to the river is the adjacent Waterfront Square, which extends the communal experience of life at The Brentford Project. A dedicated space for outdoor markets, performance and public events, Waterfront Square will add to Brentford’s strong community feel. Providing another perspective across the water, a series of raised podium gardens will be interspersed throughout Workhouse Dock.
To the east, Chiswick Park hosts a suite of global, European and national corporations including Paramount, Sony and Starbucks. Creating a business community of its own, The Brentford Project already hosts classic car entrepreneur, Duke of London, and on-site bakery and restaurant, Rye by the Water with the future retail vision to include over 50 new shops, boutiques, restaurants and entertainment venues in order to create a new riverside destination in west London.
An important commuter corridor into central London, trains from Brentford to London Waterloo take 24 minutes, while nearby Boston Manor Underground station will take residents to Leicester Square within 32 minutes via the Piccadilly line. Heathrow Airport is also a 15-minute drive away by car for unrivalled international connections.
Jenny Steen, Sales Director at Ballymore, comments: “One year on from the launch of The Brentford Project, this new release of homes offers a fresh opportunity to become part of the thriving community and exciting destination that is in the making here in west London. The Brentford Project offers residents a rare lifestyle not often found in London. Not only are there some of the capital’s most beautiful parks nearby, but the extensive landscaping, public spaces and impressive variety of amenities throughout the neighbourhood will create a unique waterside destination. This new chapter of The Brentford Project provides the latest look at what is still to come in a constantly evolving neighbourhood – set amongst some of Brentford’s most historic surroundings.
