Our vision

Old Oak Park is the largest privately owned site in the area and key to unlocking the potential of Old Oak Common. It can deliver the first major development and set the standard for this new part of London.

We can create something truly special at Old Oak Park – a new piece of London – and, using the positive feedback from the previous three phases of consultation, have created more detailed plans to deliver the following:

  • Around 6,500 new homes for Londoners – of all tenures and price ranges, revised down as we have evolved our masterplan from our early vision of 9,000 and then 7,000, in order to prioritise the quality of the public realm and retain the Rolls Royce Building.
  • Up to 8,000 new jobs across a vibrant mix of uses – including a variety of flexible commercial spaces focused on small to medium sized companies and start-ups, with dedicated training and education initiatives in place to ensure local people are able to access these jobs.
  • A new cultural quarter – anchored by a famous cultural institution with education facilities and an outreach programme for schools and the local community, bringing visitors here every day of the year and helping to shape a strong identity at Old Oak Park.
  • A Primary School, community centres and healthcare services – so that the social infrastructure is in place to support a sustainable community.
  • A new High Street – a 25-metre wide Oak lined thoroughfare potentially with a bus route, connecting Harlesden and Willesden Junction station with the new Overground station at Old Oak Park, then passing South over the canal to Old Oak Common station and Wormwood Scrubs.
  • An exceptional environment on both sides of the Grand Union Canal – an amazing asset running for 1km along the site, the canal will have a nature reserve and towpath to the south and a new promenade to the north with a series of high quality public open spaces for everyone to enjoy.
  • A new Canal Basin bringing the Grand Union Canal into Old Oak Park – creating a fantastic and accessible waterside environment with activities happening on the water, with restaurants and bars around it.
  • Retaining the Rolls Royce Building as a commercial hub – the 1940’s building will be refurbished to become a home for start-up and growing businesses, so that following Cargiant’s relocation new business and ideas will be able to flourish and provide jobs in this part of west London.
  • A new Central Square at the Overground station – the size of almost two football pitches and the heart of Old Oak Park, a dynamic centre with a cultural hub, community and sports facilities, shops and a local market.
  • A 21st century viaduct – creating permeability across the site so that the rail lines no longer cut the site in two, enabling generous areas of open space to be created and providing the best possible passenger experience for those arriving at Old Oak Park.
  • Facilitating 14 new bridges and underpasses – high quality and elegant infrastructure which will celebrate Britain’s engineering heritage, connecting with surrounding areas North, South, East and West, delivering new bus routes as well as road, pedestrian and cycle links.
  • A network of streets, parks and squares – with beautiful landscape treatments, children’s play areas, public art, performance spaces and sports facilities, well-lit with natural surveillance from the surrounding buildings.
  • Shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and sports and leisure facilities – so that Old Oak Park functions as successfully as other centres, providing amenities for residents, workers, visitors and the wider community.
  • A sustainable development – that is flexible and robust to meet London and the planets future needs, including new energy centres, water management solutions such as a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS), green, brown and blue roofs, district heating, a range of housing typologies, local services and community infrastructure
