Laing O’Rourke is on board to deliver the 575-home scheme in Ealing, regenerating a large light industrial site close to the Southall Crossrail station.

The 350,000 sq ft development will comprise a mix of build-to-rent, market sale and around 180 homes for shared ownership and affordable rent.

Designed by Cartwright Pickard, the development will also include 2,100 sqm of office space and 318 sqm of flexible commercial floorspace within four separate buildings of between 15 and 23 storeys with a 2-storey podium.

The scheme will be car free but with 926 cycle parking spaces and two dedicated servicing bays on Merrick Road.

Communal gardens and public realm space will be created on the Merrick Road frontage and landscaping, play and amenity space areas within the site.

35% of all residential units by habitable rooms will be affordable, with a tenure split of, 30% London Affordable Rent, 70% Shared Ownership.

The development in Merrick Road will act as a gateway site, helping to trigger the regeneration of Southall over the next decade, in line with Ealing Council’s aims.

Several large sites nearby have been purchased by other developers.

James Pickard, Director at Cartwright Pickard, said: “We are thrilled with the result of this planning application. The project is a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate the full potential of offsite manufacturing methods to speed up the delivery and improve the quality of new homes for London.

“Stanhope and Network Homes are forward-thinking organisations that are pushing the boundaries in terms of innovation and design quality, and demonstrating how homes in London will be delivered in the future.”
