A bit about us
ISIS Waterside Regeneration is a partnership company, owned by the Canal and River Trust (formerly British Waterways) and MUSE Developments, with 50% of its returns re-invested by the Canal & River Trust into the maintenance and enhancement of the UK Waterway network. ISIS Waterside Regeneration is committed to revitalising Britain's waterways by creating sustainable waterside communities and delivers high quality and well-designed schemes based around complementary, mixed uses.
ISIS Waterside Regeneration is a multi-award winning developer, having previously completed two highly successful, residential developments: Islington Wharf in Manchester and Granary Wharf in Leeds.
Our journey so far
Outline planning consent for the overall scheme in Brentford was secured in March 2012 and followed an in-depth consultation with the local community. Works have since commenced on site with the first phase of homes expected to be completed later in 2015. Detailed planning permission for phase two at Brentford Lock West was secured at the end of 2014, with works on this phase due to commence this year. The overall scheme will comprise 520 residential homes, 20% of which will be affordable. The scheme will also deliver 7,000 sq metres of commercial space.
The project will breathe new life into Brentford. In addition to providing much needed new housing, the scheme will deliver new community spaces and commercial buildings, helping to create new jobs for the area. £2 million has also been allocated for investment into local health and education facilities.
Improving the local waterways
As part of the overall scheme, ISIS Waterside Regeneration is working in conjunction with the Canal & River Trust to make a number of improvements to the moorings at Brentford Lock West. These improvements include the addition of new visitor mooring and hook up points, along with the installation of a new floating pontoon which is now in place and is being used by the local canoe club. Further enhancements have also been made to widen the canal towpath, providing better access and a safer walkway for both new and existing residents.
Becoming part of the community
It is our aim to create places that feel special, places that people enjoy living in and care about, stimulating new communities with a range of cultural and social events until they take on a life of their own.
We are supporting a number of local initiatives and organisations from within the borough, such as Cultivate London – an innovative, urban farm which aims to increase the amount of locally and organically grown produce available across London. Cultivate London has become an integral part of the development. Close partnerships with other local organisations including Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, Active 360 and canoe club Edge have also been developed and Brentford Lock West will host a new watersports hub, to be enjoyed by the whole community.
The homes on phase one at Brentford Lock West have been selling well, with the first collections called The Halyards and The Arbor, now sold out. A limited number of apartments remain for sale at Bowline Court and we have recently released a collection of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments and 4 bedroom townhouses at Carrick Square.
With planning now secured for phase two, works will commence on this second stage later this year.

PLANNING SECURED FOR SECOND PHASE AT BRENTFORD LOCK WEST
ISIS Waterside Regeneration has been granted planning permission by Hounslow Borough Council for the delivery of a second phase at its popular mixed use scheme Brentford Lock West in Brentford.
The second phase of homes will include 141 new residential properties, including four bedroom townhouses and a collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as commercial space on the ground floor along Commerce Road.
Mæ Architects have been appointed to design the second phase and have been working closely with the developer and the local community to ensure that the delivery of this second phase offers a different architectural perspective, while complementing the initial phase of homes, currently under construction
Katie Sully, Development Director at ISIS Waterside Regeneration, said:
“With homes on the initial phase at Brentford Lock West selling well, securing planning for the second phase marked a great end to a very successful year in 2014. The scheme has already had a positive impact on this little corner of west London, with increased use of the local waterways and initiatives such as Cultivate London (an innovative urban farm, which has been on site since works first commenced), really adding to the sense of community that is building here. It was always the intention to have a number of architects design the different phases to ensure architectural diversity and it’s important to us that we continue to liaise closely with the local community as the development evolves. We are very excited about the fresh perspective Mæ Architects will bring.”
Alex Ely, partner at Mæ Architects, added:
“We’ve designed a scheme that is architecturally distinct whilst being of its place. Our design takes its cues from the waterways and its wharf architecture as well as drawing on characteristics of the nearby conservation area. We are excited about now taking it forward to construction and adding our bit to this great development.”
Situated along the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Brentford Lock West forms part of a five year project, which is expected to breathe new life into Brentford, through the delivery of 520 new homes. In addition to providing much needed new housing, the scheme will also deliver new community spaces and commercial buildings, helping to create new jobs for the area. The homes, which are being delivered by leading waterside developer ISIS Waterside Regeneration, offer buyers a unique opportunity to secure a new, highly specified home, while benefiting from a host of community features and green initiatives – from roof top allotments to the delivery of a new watersports hub to be operated by Brentford Football Club Community Sports Trust.
