Ballymore has now exchanged contracts with Morrisons for a store in their Brentford Project scheme. The 36,000 sq ft store on Brentford High Street will open in 2023.
The new supermarket will include Market Street counters, Nutmeg clothing and a new Barista Bar, and provide basement parking for around 130 cars. The Brentford Project spans 11.8 acres on the southern side of the high street. It will ultimately deliver 876 homes alongside new public space, and new commercial, retail, leisure and cultural opportunities. Reconnecting the High Street with the waterfront via a series of pedestrianised yards and lanes, Ballymore will also deliver extensions to the Thames path, opening up new waterfront walking routes. Work is already under way.
John Mulryan, group managing director at Ballymore, comments: “Our partnership with Morrisons represents a significant milestone in our vision to establish a revitalised high street for Brentford, and one which delivers on everything needed for modern life. Welcoming this market-leading retailer to The Brentford Project will offer the local community convenience and choice, and will be a great addition to the thriving retail scene we are creating across the neighbourhood.”
Morrisons senior asset manager, Georgina French said: “We’ve always been committed to Brentford so we’re delighted to have secured the store’s future as part of Ballymore’s development. This new scheme means that we will retain a presence on Brentford High Street and offer our customers a new look store with improved layout and additional popular and useful services.”
