In one of Londonís biggest regeneration projects, signalling a decisive vote of confidence in Ealing, the former Southall Gas Works site is being redeveloped by Berkley Homes subsidiary St James to create 3,750 new homes. The 34ha brownfield site will also provide 47,250sq m of commercial and community floor space, a new primary school and large areas of landscaped public realm and open amenity space.

It will take 30 years to be built, and is anticipated to create more than 1,000 permanent jobs, in addition to the several thousands stemming from construction.

The site is next to the Grand Union Canal and a future Crossrail station, close to the M4 motorway and next to 36 hectares of country park in one of 33 of the mayorís Opportunity Areas.

The gas works ceased production in the 1970s and is now being used as a car park. Work is expected to start on the site by 2015, with the first homes complete in 2019, the year Southall Crossrail station is due to open.
