Ealing Council seeks development partner for Perceval House

The council is seeking proposals for the full site development of 14-16 Uxbridge Road, Ealing, W5. The site extends to approximately three acres and includes Perceval House and the car park.

The aim is to deliver a mixed use development including a new council headquarters, customer service centre and library for Ealing Council. The new development will also include high quality private and affordable homes and other appropriate uses. 

The council’s key objectives driving this project are:
1. The provision of new office accommodation
2. The development of a high quality mixed use scheme, with the aim of 50% of housing being affordable
3. The council to have an option to purchase the affordable homes at an agreed price
4. To share in the development risks and rewards of a successful development in order to increase the return to the council
5. To achieve a profitable scheme that does not require the council to make additional funding available for the cost of its core accommodation requirements
6. A high quality scheme that enhances the town centre.

Leader of Ealing Council, Julian Bell, said: “We are looking for a partner that will embrace our vision for a 21 century workspace for the council to deliver its services from, while bringing much needed housing and retail space to the town centre.”

Pat Hayes, Ealing Council’s executive director for regeneration and housing, said: “This will be an exciting opportunity for the developer to make their mark in Ealing. The development will join a growing list of projects in the town centre including Crossrail, Dickens Yard and Ealing Filmworks Development.”

Neil Parlett, Director, Real Estate Advisory at Lambert Smith Hampton, said: “Ealing Council has ambitious plans to develop new homes, shops and offices over the next ten years, and is proactively leading the way by bringing forward the Perceval House site for redevelopment”.

“We have a strong track record working on some of London’s most high-profile development and regeneration opportunities, and we are delighted to be working with Ealing Council to help them achieve their vision for this important site”.

The Perceval House site backs on to the Great Western main line and is bordered by Longfield Avenue to the east and Uxbridge Road to the south.  The arrival of Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) services in 2019 will effectively make Ealing a Zone 1 location, reducing journey times from Ealing Broadway to Bond Street to just 11 minutes, Liverpool Street in 18 minutes, Canary Wharf in 25 minutes and Heathrow Airport in just 15 minutes.
