Willmott Dixon has signed a development agreement with Brentford Football Club to build a 20,000 capacity stadium in Lionel Road South.
The contractor’s development arm Regen was named as preferred bidder in January last year and will take forward plans for Brentford FC to move from its existing stadium at Griffin Park to the new stadium near Kew Bridge.
The club will contribute its land at the site, where Willmott Dixon will build the new stadium, associated infrastructure and 910 new homes.
Out of the 910 homes, 338 will be for the private rented sector under the company’s PRS business: be:here.
Willmott Dixon Regen divisional chief executive Andrew Telfer said: “This deal highlights our ability to combine our homes for sale and private rent business models to cross-fund significant projects like stadia as well as deliver large volumes of residential accommodation for both tenures.”
London Borough of Hounslow now needs to issue a Compulsory Purchase Order to enable the club to complete the land assembly.
Work is expected to begin on site later this year.
