Phase 1B of the large scale regeneration at the Rectory Park Estate in Ealing is nearing completion on site. Having designed the scheme up to planning, bptw are currently working with contractor Hill to deliver Phases 1 and 2 which will provide 160 new homes, including 22 family houses which have already been handed over to existing residents. When complete, the scheme, currently being marketed as Mandeville Place, will deliver 449 mixed tenure contemporary homes. Highly praised by the CABE design council and the GLA, the development places a strong focus on the design of landscaping and open spaces to compliment the estates’ proximity to the neighbouring Northolt & Greenford Countryside Park. Working alongside client Network Housing Group, bptw implemented a series of community engagement activities informing the site’s masterplan which is fashioned around character spaces and park vistas.
Following completion and handover of the first homes on site, the Chair of the Residents’ Association stated, “The beauty of these houses is that they are all energy efficient with double glazing, solar panels, water meters and water butts it’s an entirely new concept from what we’ve got at present time. Living standards are going to increase, so the residents will notice a great deal of difference from day one. I know it’s going to be better housing, better living, and a better environment for all the residents when the regeneration is finished.”
