Colliers International advised on purchase of land close to new Elizabeth Line.
Planning permission has been granted for a new mixed-use residential development in west London, which will provide high quality housing close to the new Crossrail train station.
Colliers International advised MHA London on the purchase of the 1.9 acre site in Trumpers Way, Hanwell, which currently houses 32,328 sq ft of industrial units. Designed by Patel Taylor Architects, the new development Elthorne Works will include 205 apartments including private and affordable housing over three buildings, as well as eight townhouses, and landscaped gardens. Some industrial units will also be available on the ground floor of the development to provide continued local economic activity.
Hossein Abedinzadeh, Founder of MHA London said: “I am delighted that we have been granted planning permission for this exemplar development which will provide benefits to the local community with much-needed homes, flexible workspace and new employment opportunities, in addition to enhanced public realm, car parking and cycle spaces. It is important to us that all our projects are not only commercially successful but provide a positive contribution to the neighbourhood.”
The development is located only one mile from Hanwell station, which is on the soon-to-be opened Elizabeth Line, and will provide commuting times to Bond Street Tube station of just 17 minutes, compared to 32 minutes currently.
Andrew White, Head of Residential at Colliers International added: “In London, where land space is at a premium, mixed-use developments like this one are essential in providing a range of property uses which can fit local needs. Elthorne Works will provide good quality housing, while still retaining the area’s ability to provide local employment and capitalising on the soon to be opened Elizabeth Line.”
Colliers International acted on the purchase of the site, and will be working with MHA London on the delivery of the scheme.
