History & Heritage


A Place For All

Berkeley are driven by an ambition to create a unique and spectacular destination in West London, unlocking part of the city like never before. Mixing vibrant cosmopolitan with a strong sense of community and green living, this will be London as its very best.

Transforming a disregarded brownfield site into a new vibrant village requires careful planning. Since purchasing the development from the National Grid in 2014, Berkeley have significantly enhanced the masterplan.

How? By creating three hubs:

  • Community hub - Bringing together a community and educational offering which borders a relaxed residential area sitting alongside the Grand Union Canal.
  • Convenience hub - Providing local amenities and facilities.
  • Commercial hub - Blending residential, retail and leisure uses whilst in close proximity to the Crossrail station and complementing the existing High Street.

As a place 'For All' Berkeley will ensure the development creates strong links with the existing community. How?

  • Connecting surrounding streets from the north.
  • Constructing new footbridges from the 90-acre Minet Country Park to the west of the development across the Grand Union Canal.
  • Opening bus routes.
  • Situating the school on the north side to act as an interface between the existing community and the development.
  • Creating new cycle and fitness trails.
