Greenford GSK Site
Designed by HTA Design LLP, Greenford Green will revitalise 8.64 hectares of derelict industrial land adjacent to the historic Grand Union Canal in North Ealing to create a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood with public realm at its heart. Seven new residential blocks will provide a total of 2,018 new homes, of which a substantial 75% will be Build-to-Rent and 590 affordable homes, all set within a network of green spaces. A generous 40% of Greenford Green will consist of high quality public open space with the Grand Union Canal at its centre. Over the last year, HTA Landscape have been working under novated and CMT appointments to design and coordinate elements of the infrastructure contract at Greenford. Covering 8 hectares, this contract creates the foundations over which the new public realm will be created. The infrastructure contract includes a new pedestrian bridge, an energy centre, two sub-stations, a road network, site wide civils layouts, a series of RC retaining walls and a new canal edge.
