Locally are many of the world’s most successful music, entertainment and leisure brands, as well as a thriving new generation of emerging enterprises. To the south and west are wide open, wild spaces rich in natural life. The re-discovery of this hidden gem sees the Yards and Lanes of this proud West London town re-established, and the water’s edge brought back to life.
A revitalised high street will incorporate all the amenities desired for modern living, with a selection of market-leading retailers, alongside a major supermarket, boutique cinema and traditional shops including a bakery, greengrocer and butcher. Meanwhile, a series of characterful yards and lanes have been designed to seamlessly reconnect the high street with the waterfront. The passageways of the lanes will be dedicated to supporting emerging local businesses, home to a variety of boutiques, independent retailers, artisans, craftspeople and budding entrepreneurs.
Down by the water, thoughtful public realm and an eclectic range of restaurants, cafés and pubs will line the frontage, creating a dynamic culinary offering. Extensions to the Thames path will open up new walking routes along the water’s edge.
The Brentford Project will also bring a host of community spaces, in particular with the transformation of the Grade II Listed St Lawrence’s Church – a forgotten masterpiece originally designed by renowned Brentford architect, Thomas Hardwick. A hidden gem which dates back to the 15th Century, the church, with its dramatic vaulted ceiling, wooden arcading and striking rows of arches, is set to become a new focal point for Brentford as a cultural and foodie hub – designed to host a series of pop-ups, events and shows.
