Members of Hounslow Council recently visit Bath Road in Hounslow, the £40 million project, where Higgins is building 176 much needed affordable homes for A2Dominion.
The 100% affordable housing scheme, on the site of a former Morrisons, will help meet the housing demand in the borough by providing 83 homes for affordable rent and 93 properties for Shared Ownership.
Cllr Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “The redevelopment of this site will reinvigorate the area, bringing in high quality homes at prices local people can afford to rent or buy.
“It also creates a new and more direct link between Beaversfield Park and Hounslow West underground station, opening up this fantastic green space and improving connectivity, both of which are key elements in our Local Plan.”
A new 6,100 sq ft supermarket, play area and outdoor space for residents are other key features of the scheme.
The planning scheme has been designed by Colwyn Foulkes & Partners and the delivery architect will be Fourpoint Architects.
