A new riverside town centre in the heart of west London

The 4.79-hectare waterside site in the London Borough of Hounslow holds remarkable potential and our plan for the site is accordingly ambitious, incorporating 112,000 sq m (GEA) of floor space across eleven buildings. Combining residential, retail, employment, community and leisure uses, The Brentford Project includes approximately 14,000 sq m of new retail, as well as leisure and commercial opportunities, and a gym / leisure centre. Retaining several heritage buildings and thoroughfares, the project offers a sensitive and inspiring interplay of old and new that injects new energy into a wonderful stretch of waterside London - with architecture by renowned practice, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, alongside Stirling Prize-recognised architects, Glenn Howells Architects and Maccreanor Lavington.

"A sensitive and inspiring interplay of old and new"

A revitalised high street will incorporate all the amenities desired for modern living, with a selection of market-leading retailers, alongside a major supermarket, boutique cinema and traditional shops including a bakery, greengrocer and butcher. Meanwhile, a series of characterful yards and lanes have been designed to seamlessly reconnect the high street with the waterfront. The passageways of the lanes will be dedicated to supporting emerging local businesses, home to a variety of boutiques, independent retailers, artisans, craftspeople and budding entrepreneurs.

Down by the water, thoughtful public realm and an eclectic range of restaurants, cafés and pubs will line the frontage, creating a dynamic culinary offering. Extensions to the Thames path will open up new walking routes along the water’s edge.

The Brentford Project will also bring a host of community spaces, in particular with the transformation of the Grade II* Listed St Lawrence’s Church – a forgotten masterpiece originally designed by renowned Brentford architect, Thomas Hardwick. A hidden gem which dates back to the 15th Century, the church, with its dramatic vaulted ceiling, wooden arcading and striking rows of arches, is set to become a new focal point for Brentford as a cultural and foodie hub – designed to host a series of pop-ups, events and shows.
