Plans for the site include several sustainable features, including an air source heat pump, PV panels, and green roofs. The development has a central courtyard with planting and children’s play facilities. The scheme will also include upgrades to surrounding pedestrian and cycle facilities and additional tree planting on Uxbridge Road to bolster air quality and further contribute to the improvements the scheme will deliver to the high street.
James Bradbury, senior development manager at TT Group, said:
“This currently vacant site can deliver substantial benefits for the local community in Shepherd’s Bush, so we are pleased to have worked closely with the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham over the last 18 months to reach this point and to have secured approval to move forward with the regeneration. The scheme will provide new high-quality and affordable homes for the Borough while helping to activate and revitalise the high street. Providing ground floor affordable community use or workspace at discounted rent, as well as plantings and improvements to pedestrian and cycleways, will benefit the whole community. We look forward to continuing to work with the Borough to deliver on other sites within our portfolio.”
