BRENTFORD’S WATERSIDE SCHEME PICKS UP ANOTHER INDUSTRY AWARD

4th July 2017

Brentford Lock West wins a prestigious RIBA London Award 2017

Waterside Places has won a highly acclaimed RIBA London Award for its waterside development, Brentford Lock West. This is the third RIBA Award for the development and follows a RIBA National and a RIBA London Award in 2015, for the first collection of homes delivered here as part of this large-scale regeneration scheme.

This latest RIBA Award, was for The Arbor – by Architects Mikhail Riches with Cathy Hawley. The Arbor was the last collection of homes to delivered as part of phase one at Brentford Lock West and comprises 27 one, two and three bedroom apartments, duplexes and townhouses, situated along a neighbourhood street. The scheme and its design was described by the judges as being 'functional, but also thoughtful, and indeed, charming' and it was recognised for providing accommodation, which was 'spacious' and 'well planned throughout' with 'good natural light and views'.

John Robinson, Development Director for Brentford Lock West said: "We are delighted that yet again, Brentford Lock West has been recognised for its impressive design and architectural style. To have secured three RIBA Awards for this development is testament to the level of detail behind the project and the emphasis we have put on achieving good design – which is not only aesthetically pleasing but puts the homeowner at its heart. We would like to congratulate the architects on securing such a prestigious award. With phase two now underway, we are hopeful that this success can be continued."

Annalie Riches, Director of Mikhail Riches said: "At The Arbor and with the wider Brentford Lock West masterplan, Waterside Places has delivered an interesting and attractive new residential quarter with a strong sense of place out of a site that had lain derelict for 40 years. Our approach was to create great housing and a place with genuine, discernible character, with play spaces for children and a design for green spaces that enhances the biodiversity and wildlife of the area and canal."

Phase one at Brentford Lock West has sold out. However, phase two at Brentford has recently launched, with homes available to reserve off-plan. Chalico Walk makes up the first of the homes to be released as part of phase two at Brentford Lock West. A waterfront building of 42 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Chalico Walk overlooks Brentford's Grand Union Canal, where Waterside Places has carried out extensive improvements.

Brentford Lock West forms part of a long-term regeneration project to breathe new life into Brentford through the anticipated delivery of approximately 500 new homes. Close to local shops, leisure facilities, beautiful parks and waterside walkways, the scheme has been carefully designed to maximise the water frontage whilst offering stylish homes, community spaces and commercial buildings in a new desirable west London destination.
Prices at Chalico Walk start from £412,500. A number of the homes enjoy water views.

DEVELOPER LAUNCHES HELP TO BUY IN BRENTFORD

23rd May 2017

Waterside Places has launched Help to Buy at its popular waterside scheme in Brentford. From this month, homebuyers keen to secure themselves a new home but struggling to raise a large enough deposit can take advantage of the Government's Help to Buy scheme, which has been made available across selected plots on Chalico Walk at the Brentford Lock West development in west London.

Phase two at Brentford Lock West was launched to the market in February this year, with a number of its waterside apartments already reserved off plan. Through the Help to Buy scheme, the developer now hopes to assist more purchasers to secure their first home here.

John Robinson, Development Director at Brentford Lock West, said: "Following the previous, sell-out success of phase one at Brentford Lock West, interest in our recent release of homes here has been high. Brentford is proving an increasingly popular destination among today's young home buyers – with its waterside setting, thriving community spirit and access to green open spaces, it provides London buyers with an opportunity to secure a home in an area that is well connected to the Capital, yet enjoys more of a relaxed, village feel.

"Help to Buy is proving an increasingly important route into home ownership for so many of today's buyers. We are delighted to have the scheme available across a number of our one and two bedroom apartments, meaning our homes are more accessible to a wider pool of buyers keen to secure a home here in Brentford."

Chalico Walk makes up the first of the homes to be released as part of phase two at Brentford Lock West - an award-winning development by Waterside Places. A waterfront building of 42 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Chalico Walk overlooks Brentford's Grand Union Canal, where Waterside Places has carried out extensive improvements. Homes here enjoy a desirable position and offer buyers the opportunity to secure themselves a highly specified new home in a prime setting.

PENTHOUSES PROVE POPULAR AT WATERSIDE SCHEME

20th Februry 2017

Phase two at Brentford Lock West launched with great success this weekend as interested buyers descended on the newly refurbished marketing suite, keen to be one of the first to view the stunning new selection of apartments released for sale here.

Penthouses proved the 'pick of the day', with all three of the penthouse apartments released getting snapped up over the weekend. With impressive waterside views, a high specification throughout and an opportunity to become a part of the thriving new community, which has already begun to get established here, demand for these eagerly anticipated new homes is expected to remain high.

Chalico Walk makes up the first of the homes to be released as part of phase two at Brentford Lock West - an award-winning development by Waterside Places. A waterfront building of 42 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Chalico Walk overlooks Brentford's Grand Union Canal, where Waterside Places has carried out extensive improvements. Homes here enjoy a desirable position and offer buyers the opportunity to secure themselves a highly specified new home in a prime setting.

John Robinson, Development Director at Brentford Lock West, said:
"It was great to see so many people over the weekend, all keen to secure themselves one of our stunning new homes. Our existing residents on phase one continually tell us how pleased they are to have moved here and have enjoyed exploring all that this relatively undiscovered part of West London has to offer. With access onto the canal, the likes of Syon Park within easy reach and so many local events and activities on offer, such as the well-established weekly market, there really is so much to see and do. We are very excited to have launched the first of our homes on phase two and I'd encourage anyone who is considering a purchase here to come down and see what we have on offer."

PHASE TWO AT BRENTFORD LOCK WEST LAUNCHING

13th February 2017

The eagerly anticipated phase two at Brentford Lock West will be launching this weekend – with appointments now being taken for the launch event on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th February 2017.

Chalico Walk will make up the first of the homes to be released as part of phase two at Brentford Lock West - an award-winning development by Waterside Places. A waterfront building of 42 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Chalico Walk overlooks Brentford's Grand Union Canal, where Waterside Places has carried out extensive improvements. Homes here enjoy a desirable position and offer buyers the opportunity to secure themselves a highly specified new home in a prime setting.

Mæ Architects has designed the homes to offer a new architectural perspective while complementing the first phase at Brentford Lock West, which has sold out. The six pavilion buildings have distinct saw-tooth roof forms that make reference to the neighbouring wharf architecture, while terraces of townhouses and inhabited bridges link the pavilions and enclose a resident garden. The visual relationship to the canal is optimised with buildings positioned to frame views of the water.

The highly specified properties will benefit from high gloss kitchens with Silestone composite worktops and contemporary bathroom suites with white sanitaryware and chrome fittings.


John Robinson, Development Director at Brentford Lock West, said:
"The interest we are already receiving about the imminent launch of phase two is significant and is testament to the quality of the homes we delivered here on phase one. Brentford Lock West has already had a substantial impact on this corner of west London, as a result of vast investment in the local waterways and new initiatives such as the hugely popular rooftop allotments on top of Carrick Square. Phase two will bring further architectural diversity and a variety of homes to cater for every element of this growing new community."

Situated along the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Brentford Lock West forms part of a long-term regeneration project to breathe new life into Brentford through the anticipated delivery of approximately 500 new homes.
