Park Royal is in the midst of a remarkable transformation, with the area undergoing a major regeneration project that is set to update and improve the area’s offering; helping to accommodate transport links, green open spaces, and a new, stable community. With this in mind, Network Homes is thrilled to introduce its brand-new scheme, Acton Works in Park Royal. Launching March 27th 2021, this stylish development will comprise a top-tier selection of one, two, and three-bedroom Shared Ownership apartments; providing the perfect opportunity for home-hunters with an eye for potential to well and truly invest in their future, and make those first important steps onto the property ladder.
Situated on Acton Lane, the scheme will form an integral part of the Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration area. Major investment has been poured into rail infrastructure projects, HS2 and Crossrail, and Park Royal is the only place in London where the two new transport links meet – making it the perfect homing ground for commuters and young professionals.
Historically an area populated by farms, and later, a hub for factories and warehouses aiding the war effort, Park Royal boasts a rich and fascinating history, characterised by its continual evolution and ability to move with the times. Echoing this, the newest regeneration scheme aims to transform the area; creating a distinct sense of community, and guaranteeing connectivity with the rest of London. The area is set to be surrounded by valued amenity space, and verdant outdoor areas for local people to enjoy at their leisure, and with Central Middlesex Hospital being situated right on the doorstep of Acton Works, it is evident that community is truly at the core of this development.
Property Developer, Hollybrook Limited comment: “The development site occupies one area within Park Royal Centre, identified by the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation for the creation of a new neighbourhood. The buildings have been carefully designed to address and respond positively to both the immediate and wider scale considerations. While predominantly a residential scheme, two commercial units are included at ground floor which have frontages onto Acton Lane. The dwellings and commercial units, accommodated within two blocks, create a central pedestrian route between them, running north to south and referred to as `The street`.”
Lisa Ley, Head of Sales and Marketing at Network Homes comments: “Network Homes is proud to unveil this new collection of homes at Acton Works. The scheme is ideal for buyers on the hunt for a home with vast potential. By this I refer not only to the development, but to the location itself. Old Oak and Park Royal are set to undergo huge changes that will benefit both present, and future residents at Acton Works; and by spring 2021, eager home-hunters will be able to gain a tangible idea of what this fantastic scheme, and it’s location, have to offer.”
The development has been designed with modern residents in mind, with each and every home being built in line with Network Homes’ discerning attention to detail. Layouts will be bright and open plan; making them well suited to a range of buyers; including solo purchasers, couples, growing and established families. All apartments will boast a top-tier specification to accommodate busy lifestyles, and ensure day-to-day tasks are as hassle free as possible. Additional features include Hyperoptic Broadband connections to ensure home-working lifestyles are well catered for, a balcony to every home, secure on-site bicycle storage, and car parking spaces available to selected homes.
Acton Works will benefit from its own podium-level garden; complete with colourful planting, synthetic ground turf, raised planters and lounge benches to encourage relaxation, socialisation, and play. Another key feature of this development is ‘The Street’; an oasis between the two landmark buildings of the scheme – offering a sanctuary of calm and intimacy – away from the urban landscape Acton Lane. Benches will be strategically placed along the north-south spine of ‘The Street’ to distinguish between private garden spaces and the public area.

A number of shops and eateries can be found nearby; however, for a larger range of shops, green spaces and entertainment options, Hammersmith and Brent Cross underground stations are just 19 minutes away from North Acton respectively.
