McLaren Construction has been appointed by the London Borough of Ealing to deliver 188 new homes as part of a new development, The Steyne Estate.

Located in the Lexden and Steyne Road in Acton Town, Ealing, the new homes will be spread across three buildings: an eight-storey senior living development with 71 units, a 20-storey residential tower with circa 111 units and a four-storey family block with six larger flats. The scheme will consist of 90 shared ownership homes and 27 market sale homes.

We have partnered with Beyond Carbon to integrate Passivhaus design for 71 out of the 180 new homes, meeting the highest standards in sustainability to promote low carbon living for all residents and reduce fuel poverty.

We estimate that using Passivhaus design principles will help reduce energy consumption in the 71 homes by 70%.

The new development plans will also see the improvement of the existing two residential towers on the site, by renewing the undercrofts and entrances. As well as creating community spaces, shared with the current residents on the site, in the neighbouring Rufford Tower and Moreton Tower.

Lexden and Steyne Road will be an exciting new community-focussed development in Acton Town and we’re delighted to be able to integrate Passivhaus design for sustainable living on this scheme. Integrating affordability and multi-generational living on the same project is visionary from Ealing Borough Council and we look forward to bringing this to life.

Cllr Shital Manro, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for growth and new homes, said: “London’s affordable housing crisis has left many hardworking people without a place to call their own. We are helping to tackle the crisis by delivering one of London’s biggest council homebuilding programmes. Brexit, the pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the recent national financial turmoil have created very difficult economic conditions, but we are determined to continue to deliver for Ealing residents. We’re delighted that work is now under way at Lexden Road, where we will continue to work in partnership to build a vibrant community that brings different generations together.”
