Ealing Council is seeking a development partner for its Perceval House site.
The council wants proposals for the full site development of their current main civic building at 14-16 Uxbridge Road. The site extends to approximately three acres and includes Perceval House and the car park.
The aim is to deliver a mixed use development including a new council headquarters, customer service centre and library for Ealing Council, as well as homes and other uses.
The council wants 50% of housing to be affordable, and to have an option to purchase the affordable homes at an agreed price.
They also want o share in the development risks and rewards in order to increase the return to the council, and to achieve a profitable scheme that does not require the council to make additional funding available for the cost of its core accommodation requirements.
Leader of Ealing Council, Julian Bell, said: “We are looking for a partner that will embrace our vision for a 21st century workspace for the council to deliver its services from, while bringing much needed housing and retail space to the town centre.”
Pat Hayes, Ealing Council’s executive director for regeneration and housing, said: “This will be an exciting opportunity for the developer to make their mark in Ealing. The development will join a growing list of projects in the town centre including Crossrail, Dickens Yard and Ealing Filmworks Development.”
The Perceval House site backs on to the Great Western main line and is bordered by Longfield Avenue to the east and Uxbridge Road to the south. The arrival of Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) services in 2019 will reduce journey times from Ealing Broadway to Bond Street to 11 minutes, Liverpool Street to 18 minutes, Canary Wharf to 25 minutes and Heathrow Airport to 15 minutes.
