The firm is working with housing association Catalyst to demolish the existing 230 homes on the estate to make way for 990 new homes, 45% of which will be affordable.
The major housing scheme to be known as the Verdean has been designed by Levitt Bernstein and will include four new tower blocks ranging from 14 to 24 floors.
Phil Jenkins, Group Development Director at Catalyst said: “I’m delighted that our partnership team have been able to start enabling works on site and overcome the ongoing challenges brought about by the pandemic.
“Starting work on the regeneration of Friary Park marks a milestone in developing a significant number of new homes for families in Ealing.”
Marcus Bate, Investment Director at Mount Anvil, added: “This is a very exciting time for all residents and our partnership team involved in the transformation of the Friary Park estate. We’re taking a big step forward on the path to creating outstanding new affordable and private homes in Acton.”
