Acton Gardens is one of the largest residential regeneration schemes in London, which is transforming the 52-acre site of the former South Acton estate into a vibrant new urban quarter. When complete, the scheme will deliver over 2,500 new homes, with approximately 50% affordable housing and a large proportion of family sized accommodation, along with enhanced transport links, retail and community facilities and extensive public open spaces.
Each phase of Acton Gardens has been designed by renowned architects delivering their own take on the themes set in the overall Masterplan and urban design which delivers the wider improvements to the area (street layout, street scene, public spaces, and retail and leisure amenity). All of the homes will offer well-designed, flexible living spaces, a high specification finish and private outdoor space, with a range of eco features incorporated.
Phase 7.1, design by architects Stitch Studio, will deliver 246 new homes and include 104 affordable homes and 142 for private sale homes, in a mix of apartments, houses and duplex überhaus™. Construction on these is expected to begin next summer, with completion by the end of 2019.
In recent months, construction has begun on Phase 4 designed by PCKO Architects and this will deliver 107 new homes across a full range of tenures. Demolition and site clearance has also started for Phase 5 which has been designed by HTA Architects and will deliver a further 271 new homes.
Overall completion of the 21 multi-phased scheme is currently anticipated to be in 2026.
Mike Woolliscroft, Operations Director for Countryside comments: “Acton Gardens is evolving rapidly and receiving planning consent for Phase 7.1 is another important milestone. Through the delivery of the early phases the development is already well established as a highly attractive place to live. Acton Gardens is a model for 21st century sustainable urban design, transforming the local area while integrating with its West London surroundings. A combination of the highest standards of architecture together with development of the community is fundamental to our vision for Acton Gardens and will continue to shape the scheme as it progresses over the coming years.”
In addition to new homes, the plans for Acton Gardens include a wide range of amenities to benefit the whole community. At the development’s heart, The Hub has 55,000 sq ft of space for community use as well as a central plaza with a supermarket and other community facilities. Extensive green open spaces are central to the designs and includes a series of parks, squares, communal gardens, play areas and allotments.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: “I am really impressed with the progress being made at Acton Gardens. The development is an outstanding example of a successful resident-led project that is part of the wider revival of South Acton, one of the largest regeneration schemes in London. We are pleased to be continuing with our ambitious programme of estate and town centre renewal offering affordable housing across the borough, and this development greatly enhances the area.”
Acton Gardens is conveniently located between five key rail connections, of which Acton Town (Piccadilly line and District Line) and South Acton overground are on the boundary of the scheme. Also within easy walking distance is Chiswick Park station for the underground and Acton main line station, which will benefit hugely from its inclusion on the Crossrail line, bringing speedy new connections across the capital when it opens in 2019. Homes at Acton Gardens are well placed to benefit from the uplift in values that this significant investment in London’s transport system will bring.
