The Brentford Project situated at the meeting point of the River Thames and River Brent, surrounded by Kew, Chiswick, Ealing and Richmond. Brentford is away from the rush, yet directly connected to the City and wider world, with Brentford Station just 5 minutes away. Within view of the River Thames and on London’s doorstep, this is a place to make a home, with a mix of urban and rural escape.
Locally are many of the world’s most successful music, entertainment and leisure brands, as well as a thriving new generation of emerging enterprises. To the south and west are wide open, wild spaces rich in natural life. The re-discovery of this hidden gem sees the Yards and Lanes of this proud West London town re-established, and the water’s edge brought back to life.
Building on generations of industry, Brentford continues to earn an enviable reputation for enterprise and ingenuity. From classic cars to artisan bakers, passionate and creative people are setting up shop here. The Brentford Project will fast become a business hub for a new generation of creative start-ups and independent makers.
An enviable place on the river has brought many makers to Brentford: basket weavers and brick makers, brewers and timber merchants.
Boatyards and breweries remain here, as does the architecture of history. Thomas Hardwick’s magnificent nave at St Lawrence’s Church and the Grade II listed Georgian townhouses at The Butts stand as monuments to the town’s 18th century expansion.
Already well-established is Merlin McCormack’s family owned classic car workshop and showroom, Duke of London. Lined with legendary motors, this 3,000sq ft eclectic and eccentric multi-use space has already played host to cocktail nights, business seminars, supper clubs, and now legendary Classics & Cake days.
