Barratt London were selected by TfL’s TTL Properties Ltd (TTLP) after a competitive procurement process. 

Bidders were assessed on their technical capability and the commercial performance of their tender. 

The site was approved by Ealing Council in January 2021 and will be delivered in three phases: 

  • Phase one: 195 build-to-rent homes
  • Phase two: 450 homes 
  • Phase three: 250 homes 

The site will also provide commercial space for local businesses and green public areas suitable for walking and cycling. 

As part of TfL’s wider commercial development programme, 50% of the homes built will be affordable housing. 

Social value: TfL and Barratt will provide apprenticeships and training programmes for local members of the community looking to go into construction. 

The partnership is open for further work in the north of Acton and the wider west London area, subject to contract completion. 

These other ventures include a new facility for the London Transport Museum and a further 800 homes. 

TTLP and Barratt are nearing completion of their first joint venture development together at Blackhorse View, delivering 350 new homes in the borough of Waltham Forest. 

“We are proud to be continuing our partnership with Transport for London following the success of our joint venture at Blackhorse View, Walthamstow and the start of construction of our site at Wembley Park,” said Gary Ennis, regional managing director of Barratt London & southern regions

“The site benefits from excellent transport links being close to three stations. Future buyers are attracted by both the great connections into central London and the amenities of the local area.”
