Jigsaw puzzled out
Wed 28 October 2015, 5:03 pm
Building work is set to start on ‘Jigsaw’, the second phase of regeneration at the Green Man Lane estate.
Joint venture, FABRICA by A2Dominion and Rydon, will develop the scheme which will feature 90 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, maisonettes and houses and is the next part of the £166 million redevelopment project. The five-hectare scheme will eventually feature 770 homes.
Jigsaw is partly named because of the perceived connectivity benefits of its location: it is near West Ealing station, which will be used for Crossrail trains from 2018; set to reduce journey times from the area to 13 minutes into Bond Street and 21 minutes to Liverpool Street – both of which are in central London.
Conran and Partners developed the design for the scheme around the theme of connectivity, with pathways and open spaces winding through the site. Jigsaw will include parks, landscaped plazas and pedestrian boulevards, as well as a new public realm. Bicycle storage and parking will also be available for residents.
Tom Rigby, development director for Rydon, said: “West Ealing’s emerging status as a property hotspot has been cemented by its recent upward trajectory in house prices, and the area’s popularity is only expected to increase with the imminent arrival of Crossrail.
“Jigsaw is a great opportunity to be a part of this, offering buyers a quality London home.”
A new primary school, which won planning permission earlier this year, is also part of the estate’s regeneration.
