Joint developers of the project are Prime Place, the residential development arm of Willmott Dixon, and Brentford Football Club.
Willmott Dixon said that the redevelopment of the site was in line with Prime Place’s strategy of identifying opportunities to cross-fund major community projects through providing large-scale residential developments.
The new stadium and seven blocks of flats will be built on a 10-acre site on Lionel Road South, close to Kew Bridge. There will be 304 homes for private sale and 344 for private rental through Willmott Dixon’s private rental sector company Be:here.
On completion of the stadium, Brentford FC will relocate from its current Griffin Park home, where capacity is less than 13,000. Prime Place has already secured full planning consent to develop a further 75 two-to-five-bedroom family houses for private sale on the Griffin Park site.
Prime Place managing director Brian Brady said: “We’re delighted to get the green light from Hounslow Borough Council and are looking forward to working closely with Brentford FC to deliver a superb new stadium for the Bees and badly-needed housing in a superb location that will meet the strong demand in Brentford for high quality homes for rental and private sale.”
Prime Place, Kew Bridge is the latest addition to Prime Place’s growing portfolio which includes a regeneration project to provide more than 1,100 homes at Aberfeldy Village in Poplar E14; the conversion of the former Tubbs Hill House in Sevenoaks; a partnership with Cheshunt School in Hertfordshire to deliver 88 new homes; 135 apartments and family houses in Godalming town centre, and a joint venture with Westminster City Council to deliver a state of the art new leisure centre, sports facility and 156 new homes.
