Congratulations to our competition winner
Congratulations to ex BBC newsreader Deborah Hall, who is the lucky winner of our recent competition to win a champagne afternoon tea for two at the Hilton, London Syon Park. Deborah has lived in Brentford for the last seven years. She has been very impressed with Brentford Lock West, and entered the competition when visiting the sales and marketing suite, earlier this year.
“I have been aware of the scheme at Brentford Lock West for a number of years now because, as residents of The Island directly opposite the development, the team from ISIS have taken enormous care to really listen to our dreams for the future of Brentford. We’ve very much appreciated how they’ve tried to incorporate the suggestions of local people from all over Brentford into the scheme. So it’s very exciting to see it come to fruition.
“I do like the way the designers have kept in mind the industrial heritage of the area, and I think the roofline in particular is going to be a stunning feature. They’ve also made the most of being by the waterside and residents will get such pleasure out of that – it’s such a joy to watch the wildlife and they’ll find themselves keeping a count of the various baby moorhens, coots and swans as they paddle over for breadcrumbs.
“Brentford is a great place to live – the transport links are excellent and it yet feels like a village as there’s a real sense of community spirit and heart here. We’ve seen it go through some considerable changes in the last seven years, and clearly there’s more to come. In the next few years we will be looking to downsize but we’re keen to stay in the area, which is why we have already registered our interest in the homes at Brentford Lock West. Having seen the high spec interiors and spacious balconies, we’ll certainly be following the development’s progress closely.
“I’m very excited to have won the afternoon tea at the Hilton, it’s such a lovely venue and, surrounded by the grounds of Syon Park, it‘s in a beautiful setting. It’s my birthday at the beginning of August and I can’t think of a more wonderful treat.”
Hounslow's Brentford Lock West picks up residential housing award
Brentford Lock West, an exciting new development situated along the banks of the Grand Union Canal, was selected as the winner of the residential category at the New London Awards last week, which aim to recognise the Capital’s very best examples of architecture, planning and development.
Delivered by leading waterside developer ISIS Waterside Regeneration, Brentford Lock West was commended for its overall master plan and the development’s commitment to providing community spaces and encouraging outdoor living.
The first phase of the scheme, which has been designed as part of a collaboration between leading architects Duggan Morris, Karakusevic Carson and Riches Hawley Mikhail comprises a mix of 150, one, two, three and four bedroom apartments and townhouses. The initial phase will also include commercial units in the retained art deco buildings. The development has been carefully designed to embrace a thriving waterside community, which encompasses residential, commercial and leisure space.
Katie Sully from ISIS Waterside Regeneration, said: “Having only launched the first release of homes at Brentford Lock West earlier this year, we were delighted that the development not only got shortlisted but was selected as the winner of this award. It has been very important to us from the outset that we deliver a scheme that really embraces its waterside location, while also remaining sympathetic to the area’s industrial heritage. The first collection of homes at Brentford Lock West, which are currently available off plan, have been selling fast – with many buyers impressed in particular with the outside space and the community areas, which we have incorporated into the overall design. It’s a great honour to pick up this award with our architect team – and we hope there will be many more to come as we develop this project over the next five years.”
Brendon Walsh, Director of Regeneration, Economic Development and Environment, said: “We are delighted to see this scheme winning awards and it's helping to put Brentford firmly on the map as a great place to live.”
Situated along the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Brentford Lock West launched this spring, with a number of its waterside apartments now already reserved. The first of the homes to be released comprise a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments, with prices starting from £284,950.The Sales and Marketing Suite is open daily, 10am - 5pm. Off plan reservations are now being taken.
