Planning submitted for Quayside Quarter
Plans have been submitted for Quayside Quarter, the redevelopment of the former Honey Monster Factory into a new residential-led mixed-use development in Southall for client Bridge Road Southall 2 Ltd.
The canalside development, which is set to benefit from the development of a new Crossrail Station, will transform this industrial area of Southall into an attractive and exciting new district, delivering nearly 2,000 new homes, creative hubs, light industrial workshops, community and commercial spaces and open green spaces. The development will play a key role in the wider regeneration of Southall and Ealing.
The masterplan, designed by EPR Architects in collaboration with Gillespies, consists of 9 individual buildings integrated within 3.2-hectares of high quality public realm. The development of the buildings has been divided among four architects, including EPR, Levitt Bernstein, AHR and PRS, with Gillespies responsible for the design of the site-wide landscaping and public realm.
Gillespies designs incorporate a variety of high quality open public spaces, including public plazas, pocket parks, play spaces, a green circulation spine that runs through the centre of the site, and ribbons of open space and accessible trails along the northern bank of this spur to the Grand Union Canal.
The public realm will seamlessly integrate the site into the existing and emerging built environments, improving permeability and connectivity to the wider precinct and connections to existing commercial and transport hubs.
