In February 2018 Vistry Partnerships were appointed to deliver the first phase of a pioneering new mixed-use, housing-led development that will kick start London’s biggest regeneration since 2012 Olympics.
The brownfield site, located on the western part of the Old Oak regeneration area, south of the Grand Union Canal, is currently a derelict site that has been unoccupied for 10 years. It was previously used as offices and a hostel.
There is recognition that this site should be brought back into productive use at earliest opportunity. Several existing buildings will be demolished to make way for three major blocks, rising in height from 10 to 26- storeys. Development plans will transform this unattractive area, generating a pleasant new neighbourhood for people to live and work.
Essentially the new scheme will provide a total of 605 new homes, through a mixed tenure comprising:
• 363 homes for PRS
• 136 homes for Shared Ownership
• 45 homes for Affordable Rent
• 61 homes for Social Rent.
In addition the development will create:
• 3,500m2 of office and commercial space at ground level to provide for small local businesses.
• Extensive landscaped public areas will provide an attractive environment and setting for the development along with communal space for the new residents.
• The start of a new link road from Old Oak Common Lane into the site. As neighbouring sites are developed, this road can be extended into the heart of the new Old Oak Common regeneration area.
• High standards of energy efficiency will be achieved using low carbon technology throughout the scheme.
Works will complete May 2021.
