The Greenford Quay development will be a vibrant mixed-use and well-managed neighbourhood on the banks of the historic Grand Union canal. Greystar, one of Europe’s largest rental housing operators, acquired the former GlaxoSmithKline and Sunblest Bakery sites in January 2016, and has consulted extensively with Ealing Council, the Greater London Authority, local businesses, residents, and other stakeholders to develop proposals for modern canal-side living in the heart of Greenford — and bring the currently derelict 20.3-acre site back to life.
Delegates will walk through the phased built neighbourhood, consisting of almost 2,000 new homes, across seven buildings, on renovated waterfront land.
