The Greystar Greenford development will be a vibrant mixed-use and well-managed neighbourhood on the banks of the historic Grand Union canal. Greystar acquired the former GlaxoSmithKline and Sunblest Bakery sites in January 2016, and has consulted extensively with Ealing Council, the Greater London Authority, local businesses, residents, and other stakeholders to develop proposals for modern canal-side living in the heart of Greenford — and bring the currently derelict 20.3-acre site back to life.

Project Scope

The development will provide new homes predominately designed and built for rent. The proposals include 1,965 purpose-designed and purpose-built new homes, comprising studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments across seven main buildings. A total of 1,439 homes will be available for rent from Greystar, with 526 additional homes available for sale. There will also be appropriate levels of affordable housing, comprising a mix of discount market rent and shared ownership opportunities.

The Ideal Location

With plans for 21,443 square meters of flexible commercial and community floor space, the development will also create a wealth of new amenities for residents and the local community, including shops, a supermarket, restaurants, cafes, offices, open spaces, and new connections through Greenford, including the reopening of Berkeley Avenue and a new pedestrian bridge over the Grand Union Canal. The proposals also include a new two form entry Primary School and accommodation for a new on-site healthcare facility.
