Assael Architecture has submitted plans for a 2,000-home neighbourhood in west London
The practice handed in an application to Ealing Council for its Margarine Works scheme on the former Maypole dairy site in Southall East.
Backed by Montreaux Developments, the proposals include affordable and privately rented housing as well as a 4,000m² park.
The site is close to the Honey Monster Factory site, which was masterplanned by Allies and Morrison, Southall Crossrail station and works will include a pedestrian bridge over rail lines.
Assael’s plans include retaining the Sunrise Radio building and the façade of the Maypole Margarine factory.
The scheme would create a new district with five defined areas following consultation with the local authority, neighbouring developers and the general public.
Assael director Loren Thanyakittikul said: ‘Southall is an area undergoing rapid change, so it was important for us to maintain a strong sense of community while delivering a significant number of high-quality new homes.
‘For this project it was essential that the outline application captured the essence and aspirations of this new neighbourhood without being too prescriptive, creating a platform for the best possible scheme to come forward.’
I approved, the scheme will be delivered in phases, with a start on site planned for autumn 2019 and the first homes scheduled to be available in 2021.
