Catalyst and Berkeley Group get together to deliver Southall Waterside

Catalyst has partnered with Berkeley Group to deliver 186 affordable units as part of the first phase of the Southall Waterside development in West London.

Of the homes, 120 will be for “affordable” rent with the remaining 66 for shared ownership.

Berkeley’s development is said to be one of the largest and most significant mixed use residential schemes in London, and will deliver some 3,750 new homes, along with landscaped parkland and community facilities.

The project is expected to take 20-plus years to complete and includes 500,000 sq ft of commercial space, a new cinema, a two form entry primary school, a health centre and a substantial amount of green outdoor space. The scheme will be built on an 88-acre brownfield site that was once part of the National Grid Gasworks.

Plans for the first phase include a total of 618 new homes, as well as a portion of the flagship linear park, roads, pedestrian walkways and parking. Construction is due to start this spring and the first homes are set to complete in late 2018.

Catalyst has a long history of working in Southall, having been involved in the area since the 1970s. The organisation also has two ongoing residential developments in the area: the 270 home scheme at St Bernard’s Gate and Southall Village – the long-term regeneration of the Havelock estate that will deliver 1,076 new homes.

Tom Titherington, executive director of property and growth, said: “I am delighted that Catalyst has been selected by Berkeley Group for such an important part of Southall’s ongoing regeneration. Once complete, Southall Waterside will be a thriving and diverse neighbourhood that will add a new chapter to Catalyst’s long and successful history in Southall.”

Karl Whiteman, Berkeley’s divisional managing director, added: “Southall Waterside is an important and exciting development for Southall and west London and I am very happy that Catalyst will be delivering the affordable homes as part of our first phase.”
