The developer previously secured outline planning consent for its 520 residential unit scheme, situated on the banks of the Grand Union Canal in Brentford, in March 2012. It has since forged ahead with the construction of the first phase of homes, which are already selling fast and are due for completion in 2015.
Mæ Architects have been appointed to design the second phase at Brentford Lock West, which will comprise of 140 new homes, including four bedroom town houses and apartments, as well as commercial space on the ground floor along Commerce Road.
Katie Sully, Development Director at ISIS Waterside Regeneration, said: “The first phase at Brentford Lock West has been very well received, with over two thirds already reserved or completed. We are very excited to now be submitting planning for the second phase here and look forward to continuing the development of this desirable waterside scheme. We are delighted to be working with Mae architects across the second phase and we are confident that their approach will perfectly complement the first phase of homes, which are already taking shape.
“It has been important to us that as a part of delivering this residential scheme, we enhance the surrounding waterways for the benefit of the wider community and we remain committed to this pledge. Work has already begun to widen the existing canal towpath and a floating pontoon has been installed, for use by the local canoe clubs, helping to encourage use and enjoyment of the canal here.”
Situated along the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Brentford Lock West forms part of a five year project, which aims to breathe new life into Brentford, through the delivery of 520 new homes. In addition to providing new housing, the scheme will deliver new community spaces and commercial buildings, helping to create new jobs for the area.
