Greenford Green will revitalise 8.64 hectares of derelict industrial land adjacent to the historic Grand Union Canal in North Ealing to create a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood with public realm at its heart. Seven new residential blocks will provide a total of 1,965 new homes, of which a substantial 75% will be Build-to-Rent and 590 affordable homes, all set within a network of green spaces.
A generous 40% of Greenford Green will consist of high quality public open space with the Grand Union Canal at its centre. The scheme will include a new pedestrian bridge over the canal linking the two sides of the site. This network of spaces includes tree lined streets, a landmark central square, generous green parks, children’s play areas and an activated canalside.
The public realm has been designed to activate the ground floor uses of the surrounding buildings, which will include shops and workspaces, a supermarket, restaurants, cafes, public gym and a boutique cinema.
