Soaking Up The View


Developers are increasingly popularising raised podium gardens into new developments. We take a look at some exciting developments that are maximising space and the views of the surrounding area, to create peaceful and private gardens for residents.

The Brentford Project

Encompassing a series of raised podium gardens which overlook Workhouse Dock and across the water, the Brentford Project, a new West London waterfront development is uniquely located at the meeting point of the River Thames and the River Brent.

Spanning 11.8 acres in the very heart of Brentford, The Brentford Project will breathe fresh life into the neighbourhood, including revitalising the town centre, and delivering 876 new homes alongside expansive commercial, retail, cultural and leisure spaces.

Alongside an invigorated stretch of the high street – which will be home to all the amenities desired for modern life – a series of distinctive pedestrianised lanes and yards will reconnect the high street with the waterfront.

Creating a new foodie destination, Workhouse Dock, an existing but neglected mooring on the River Brent, will be rejuvenated with 24 hour moorings, and lined with restaurants, pubs and cafés, and new public realm including tiered seating terraces - providing another unique perspective across the water, a series of raised podium gardens will be interspersed throughout Workhouse Dock.

Adjacent to Workhouse Dock, Waterfront Square is a dedicated space for outdoor markets, performance and public events, designed to add to Brentford’s strong community feel.

An important commuter corridor into central London, trains from Brentford to London Waterloo take just 24 minutes, while nearby Boston Manor Underground station takes locals to Leicester Square within 32 minutes via the Piccadilly line.

Apartments at The Brentford Project feature contemporary open-plan layouts and floor-to-ceiling glazing, and many boast cantilevered terraces.

First completions of homes are expected in spring 2022 with the overall scheme due for completion in 2027.

Prices start from £445,000 for a one-bedroom suite.
