Construction has now started at Capital Interchange Way development in Brentford, West London. Once complete, the scheme will deliver 420 new homes – 223 Build to Rent and 197 affordable rent or shared ownership. The scheme is expected to complete and welcome residents in 2025.

As well as providing much needed Build to Rent housing for the area, the scheme will also provide 45,000 sq ft of commercial and retail space. Capital Interchange Way will have three residential developments of varying heights, built over a linking podium base that will contain shops with street frontage, and undercroft car and cycle parking. Residents will also have access to outdoor recreational spaces and landscaped gardens.

The Capital Interchange Way scheme is near boutique shopping at Kew Village, Syon Park, and the Royal Botanic Gardens, and is within walking distance from Chiswick High Street. The development will offer future residents convenient access to some of London’s hidden gems – right on their doorstep.

The development will also have excellent rail and road links, making London within easy reach. This includes direct trains to London Waterloo, Richmond and Stratford from nearby Kew Bridge and Gunnersbury stations. A proposed new transport interchange will also provide direct connections to the upcoming Crossrail and HS2 services.

“After much planning, we are pleased to start work on this exciting development with Telford homes. Once complete, Capital Interchange Way will blend seamlessly into Brentford, both adding to and complementing the ongoing regeneration in the area. There will be much on offer for future residents – stylish new homes, beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces, and excellent access to nearby shops, transport links and visitor attractions. We look forward to welcoming residents to this fantastic new neighbourhood in 2025.”

The Capital Interchange Way site development is a joint venture between Telford Homes and Catalyst. Catalyst joined together with Peabody on 1 April, initially becoming a subsidiary of the Peabody group. The intention is to move to full integration by April 2023.

Catalyst is an expert in placemaking and developing tenure-blind neighbourhoods, with its approach to creative design, effective urban planning, and high-quality development underpinned by its long-term interest in its neighbourhoods. Catalyst adopt a stewardship role, which ensures that the places the company helps to create are well maintained, look great and remain desirable places to live.

“Working alongside Catalyst to deliver this project, supplying high-quality affordable housing in a prime location, has been a delight. We have spent a long time in the planning process, ensuring that everything is perfect before work commences and we are pleased to see our vision beginning to come to life. With excellent transport links, Capital Interchange Way will deliver future buyers a range of exciting amenities, offering a thriving neighbourhood just a stone’s throw away from the development.”
