Planning permission has been granted for the demolition of Wheatstone House, Chiswick, to be replaced with a mixed-use development offering 95 residential units with accompanying parking, 4,995 sq ft of commercial floorspace, and associated amenities.
The former BT Telephone Exchange benefits from its prominent location, comprising 0.8 acres on Chiswick High Road. It is situated on the main thoroughfare between Chiswick and Brentford town centres, in close proximity to Kew Bridge and Chiswick Park.
The scheme, by ColladoCollins Architects will provide a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units. A provision of affordable housing will also be available. The design seeks to enhance the visual amenity of the area and create a stronger visual statement on Chiswick High Road.
Graham Edwards, CEO at Telereal Trillium said: “This is an excellent opportunity to regenerate this part of Chiswick High Road and offer an essential contribution of housing to the local area. We have a number of exciting developments underway and we are pleased to be adding this one to our portfolio.”
It is Telereal Trillium’s intention to develop out the scheme in joint venture, with construction expected to start in late 2015.
Savills will be marketing the site and Rapleys are the planning consultants.
