Not Brentford

Brentford Redevelopment, August 2021

The south side of New Brentford is being redeveloped by Ballymore and Janet McNamara is keeping a photographic record; these photos were taken on 18 August 2021 from the north side of High Street looking south across the development site.

Ballymore reported in their August newsletter:

This month brought further progress to the ground and second floor slabs on Plots B and C where the individual outlines of the blocks are now visible from the High Street.

Progression to the rear of the site on Plot K - which overlooks the river - brought big changes as the building's facade work continued and the installation of the external walls up to roof level at the east and west towers. Scaffolding has now been installed up to level 6 on the north, south and west sides of the building to enable external facade works ... the goods and passenger hoist that was installed last month is now fully operational.'

Janet adds that the old buildings that are being kept (see photo above) are the old Bradbury’s warehouses.

Janet's earlier photo of the site includes a satellite view that shows the extent of the current phase of development and a plan from Ballymore showing Plots A-L.

James Bradbury, owner of the brick warehouses retained during the new development, ran a grocery business for over 100 years, see notes for 108 and 109 High Street.
