Planning Permission Granted for The Castle

3 Jun 2023

HTA Design, Tide Construction Limited & Vision Modular Systems has been granted full planning permission to develop a 462-home co-living scheme, known as The Castle, in Ealing.

The development will deliver a co-living community across two adjoining towers of 27 and 32 storeys. The scheme will provide generous community facilities including lounge areas, private dining and co-working spaces, a library, a gym, cinema and games rooms, and excellent cycle facilities. It will also re-instate The Castle pub, which had occupied the site since the 1930s, but closed in 2020. The new pub will have a renewed street presence, with a sculptural elevation that pays homage to the historic architecture of everyday London pubs.

Simon Toplis, Partner at HTA Design, says: “The Castle is our tenth project with Tide Construction, and will build on our joint track record of delivering high quality homes that demonstrate the incredible potential of volumetric modular. The design flexibility afforded by Vision’s volumetric system enables us to create bespoke and highly crafted schemes that respond to the neighbourhood context and character, time and time again. The Castle is particularly exciting in this respect, combining the delivery of innovative co-living with the rare opportunity to reimagine a classic London pub for the 21st Century.”
