The plans involve demolishing the Greenford Homebase store and redeveloping that site as a new Tesco with multi-level parking and homes above. The store was designed in 1987 by Grimshaw Architects, and was granted a five year certificate of immunity from listing in January 2020.
Tesco Osterley update
St. Edward have run a second consultation on the plan to relocate Tesco Osterley to the Homebase site on the Great West Road, and build around 2250 homes across the two sites.
The present Tesco Osterley site, once home to the Imperial Biscuit Factory and adjacet to the Sky Osterley Campus, would then be redeveloped as homes.
The consultation documents say the two sites, which sit either side of the Grade II listed Gillette Building, have the potential to jointly deliver 2,250 high-quality homes as well as community facilities and green open spaces and will be subject to two separate planning applications. They are in the Great West Road Opportunity Area which aims to deliver a minimum of 7,500 new homes and up to 14,000 new jobs.
The London Borough of Hounslow has produced its own Plan for the Opportunity Area. This envisages seven new mixed-use quarters where new development will inject vibrancy, urban life and a new focus into this part of Hounslow. At a local level, both sites are allocated for residential-led mixed-use development.
JTP are the architects on the Osterley site, while Patel Taylor are working on the Homebase one. Planning applications are expected later in 2020.
