Acton Gardens development springs to life
Wed 14 January 2015, 3:37 pm
Developer Countryside is making progress on its Acton Gardens scheme in Ealing.
Building work is nearly complete on phase two of the scheme, which features one, two and three-bedroom apartments, designed by award-winning architect Alison Brooks. The first occupants will move into these properties in May 2015.
Phase three is on site. It will see the construction of 208 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, 15 three and four-bedroom maisonettes and 17 four-bedroom houses. The houses on the development are designed by MacCreanor Lavington Architects, and are being built across a mansion block and two terraces of town houses. Units designed by architect Stitch Studio will complete the development adjacent to South Acton Overground station.
Planning applications have been submitted for phases four and five of the scheme, which will feature 107 and 241 units respectively. These are scheduled to be on site before the end of 2015.
Progress is also being made to establish a design brief for a “community hub” – as well as commercial and retail space – for phase six of the scheme. A competition to select an architect is currently taking place, with a decision to be made by Countryside in March.
Local residents and community groups are being consulted over the plans.
