Planning granted for mixed use development in Ealing


Planning granted for mixed use development in Ealing

26 Jun 2019

Very delighted to announce the planning approval of our scheme at Haven Green, Ealing. Home to London’s first Squash Club, the scheme occupies a heritage-rich back-land site next to Ealing Broadway station.

Sandwiched between residential back gardens and Ealing Broadway Station, the scheme rises from 2 to 9 stories, providing a 40% increase in density compared to the previously approved and NLA award-shortlisted proposal.

The traditional squash club is incorporated into the development as a meaningful asset. While providing 26% affordable housing the project offers a new marker for Ealing Station, re-invigorating a sense of place and identity.

The ‘hanging garden’ concept provides a transition device between the low-rise suburban context and the urban realm surrounding the adjacent station. The apartments have a distinct east/west visual orientation, which enhances privacy, and avoids overlooking for both the existing and future residents.

The project will be discussed at tomorrow’s Urban Design London talk as a good example for ‘Applying the Small Sites Policy’ where we have been invited to present.
