An Environmental Impact Assessment Scoping Opinion has been submitted to Hounslow Council for a scheme to replace the existing Morrisons in Brentford. The new development will re-provide the supermarket, with a 5,000 sqm food store envisaged, but also include 220 apartments above in buildings up to 12 storeys in height.
The scoping application has been submitted on behalf of Essential Living, who exclusively build for-rent apartments, and who are currently converting the Archway Tower into flats.
As this is a scoping application we don’t yet have any renders of the project, although we do know the project is called High Street East. Car parking, presumably mainly for the store, will be provided in the basement. The overall site measures 0.63 hectares and is currently around half store, half car park.
