Brunel Street Works
The build-to-rent Heartwell Buildings, part of the wider masterplan Brunel Street Works, comprise two 25-storey towers which sit on top of a four-storey podium housing a 152-bedroom hotel, gym and commercial space including cafes and bars, as well as 335 new apartments with generous entrance lobbies, sheltered roof terrace with views across London, and communal areas such as a residents’ lounge and private dining rooms. Aiming to change the experience of the arrival from Canning Town station, a green animated public square will help people orientate themselves while two retail units and a commercial unit will help to animate the streetscape and new public space.
The regeneration of this light industrial site next to Southall railway station in the Southall Housing Zone delivers 575 new homes, 2,100 sqm of office space and 318 sqm of flexible commercial floorspace within four separate buildings of between 15 and 23 storeys with a two-storey podium. Within 100m of the new Southall Crossrail station and less than 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Southall, the development will act as a gateway site, helping to trigger the transformational regeneration of Southall over the next decade. A car-free site with 926 cycle parking spaces, the scheme includes communal gardens, plus play and public realm space.
