The huge expanse of land that will see 2,000 new homes built has been cleared by developers Greystar.
Greenford Green has been long in planning and formally housed a Glaxo Smith-Kline factory.
Of 2,000+ homes, 1500 are for rent and 546 for sale. Just 30% are so-called “affordable”.
The site is slightly closer to Greenford Central Line station than Sudbury Hill Piccadilly Line station.
Chiltern also operate a skeleton service of just one train per hour from Sudbury Hill.
The Central Line will inevitably become more crowded – especially with the development marketed towards workers in central London. Greenford station does have a Great Western Rail shuttle to West Ealing station for Crossrail – yet the shuttle has very low frequencies every 30 minutes and short two-carriage trains.
There will be 837 car parking spaces meaning many residents will be reliant on public transport.
The development will include a two-form entry primary school and nursery, as well as 15,000 sq m of retail / office / dining space for residents.
