Brentford Lock West shortlisted for three Inside Housing Awards
Waterside Places – the joint venture between Muse Developments and the Canal & River Trust, is celebrating after being shortlisted for three honours for Chalico Walk of their Brentford Lock West scheme at this year’s Inside Housing Development Awards.
The team received the nod in the Best Residential Development (under 70 homes), Design Quality and Market Sale Development of the Year categories.
Designed by architects Mæ as a contemporary reinterpretation of the warehouses that formally occupied the area, the development includes a 42 one, two and three-bedroom dual-aspect homes along the banks of the Grand Union Canal.
Mike Auger, regional director at Muse Developments, said: “To be shortlisted for three of the most prestigious residential awards, really highlights the benefits of partnership working and is testament to the hard work of everyone involved.
“Bringing together distinct design, in the right environment, with building a community in mind, is where you will see true place-making in a long-term programme of regeneration.”
Alex Ely, principal at Mæ, said: “We have designed a scheme that seeks to deliver high-quality homes that prove popular in use as well as offering a distinct identify to the neighbourhood. The scheme's appeal with buyers and now the recognition through these awards validates our belief that good design adds value.”
The Inside Housing Development Awards are an opportunity for landlords, developers and architects to enter their best developments and teams to be recognised in the UK.
Waterside Places will now go up against the biggest and best from the property industry at a prestigious awards ceremony, to be held in November at The Brewery, London.
