The scheme is the first to be brought forward by Connected Living London, a partnership between build to rent specialist Grainger and Transport for London.
Designed by Assael Architecture it will be built out as five buildings on a 1.16 acre site on railway sidings and is currently used for storage and associated Elizabeth line works.
The homes will be a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom properties, providing options for all types of households, with affordable homes offered at a discounted market rent.
Ben Tate, a spokesperson for CLL and Head of Property Development at TfL, said: “It’s fantastic to see the first of our sites at Southall get the go-ahead as part of Connected Living London. We can now start delivering quality rental homes that the capital desperately needs and help improve the area for the local community.”
CCL has submitted four other planning applications since it was set up last July.
The other sites, which are spread across London, are:
- Arnos Grove (located next to the Tube station), Enfield
- Montford Place in Kennington (which is currently being used as a construction site for the Northern Line Extension), Lambeth
- Nine Elms (An Over Station Development for Nine Elms station on the Northern Line Extension), Lambeth
Once approved, these would collectively deliver more than 1,200 new rental homes across the city, with each scheme individually delivering 40% affordable housing, alongside industrial and commercial workspace and improvements for the local community.
