The Arbor – 27 new homes – is being released for off-plan sale at Brentford Lock West.
The homes, which will be built to Code Level 4, include a range of measures designed to not only improve their energy efficiency – but also to help to keep fuel costs down. Measures will ultimately include a combined heat and power system, green roofs, roof top allotments and PV panels.
In addition to providing housing, the scheme will deliver new community spaces and commercial buildings.
Katie Sully, Development Director at ISIS Waterside Regeneration, says: “We are delighted with the initial response to the development, with over 90 per cent of the first release of properties already sold off-plan. The second release is likely to attract equal interest, with our database of potential purchasers already booking appointments to view the plans at the launch weekend.”
Local initiatives, such as Cultivate London and the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, will also play a big part in the scheme’s development. Cultivate London is an innovative, urban farm which aims to increase the amount of locally and organically grown produce and is already located on site. Plans to include community allotments have been factored into the design.
Close partnerships with other local organisations including Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, Active 360 and canoe club Edge have also been developed and the scheme will host a new watersports hub.
As part of the overall scheme, ISIS is also working in conjunction with the Canal & River Trust to make a number of improvements to the moorings at Brentford Lock. These improvements will include the addition of new visitor mooring and hook up points and the installation of a new floating pontoon to be used by the local canoe club. Further enhancements will also be made to widen the canal towpath, providing better access and a safer walkway for new and existing residents.
