The new St John’s Primary School has opened. Developed as part of an additional phase of Jigsaw, the benefit for residents and the wider community will be felt for generations of pupils to come.
The new building, designed by Conran and Partners, opened in January 2018 and provides places for 630 pupils, 210 more than the previous building, plus an expanded 100 place nursery and provision for 25 pupils from across the borough with speech and language difficulties. There is also a rooftop play area as part of the three-storey development. The previous school building, on an adjacent site, remained fully operational throughout the construction period.
Works will soon commence to demolish the old school and create a further 22 three and four bedroom homes for Jigsaw to help cross-subsidise some of the costs of the school.

Developers FABRICA by A2Dominion and Rydon have launched the latest collection of apartments at Jigsaw in West Ealing, London.
The scheme’s 3rd phase offers a selection of stylish one, two and three bedroom homes set amongst landscaped gardens.
Designed by award-winning architects Conran and Partners, the 770 sleek apartments form part of the £166m masterplan to form a new community for West London.
Each home boasts its own outdoor space, with balconies or terraces that overlook the gardens, central park and tree-lined boulevards.
The apartments have been designed to the highest specification with engineered European Oak timber flooring in the hallways, integrated Siemens appliances in the kitchens and carpet to bedrooms and underfloor heating throughout.
Bespoke interiors complement the modern design with a warm and neutral palette creating a calm and inviting tone, with floor to ceiling windows bringing swathes of light.
Residents will benefit from on-site facilities including a café, landscaped communal gardens, secure underground parking and cycle storage. On-site CCTV also ensures the highest levels of security.
The first homes are due for completion in Autumn/Winter 2019. 1-bed prices start from £420,000.
Earlier this year, Knight Frank’s 2017 Crossrail report analysed house price growth along the 68-mile route. New figures, incorporating updated data, show that house prices within a 15-minute walk of West Ealing station have increased by 75% between Royal Assent being granted in July 2008 to the end of March 2017. During this time house price growth around the station outperformed the wider local authority, which saw a 69% increase over the same period.
Last year Ealing was voted by Londoners to be among the top ten “happiest” places to live in the capital, as measured by local community spirit, friendliness of neighbours, quality of local sporting facilities, safety, transport and green space. The Borough is also home to some excellent schools – 11 primary schools and six secondary schools in the area are rated outstanding by Ofsted, the top accolade offered by the UK’s education standards regulator.
Matthew Goldsworthy, International Project Sales Associate at Knight Frank, commented: “When it comes to residential development, in recent years there has been a lot of focus on the eastern stretch of the new Crossrail Line. In contrast, due to West London being more established, there is limited land suitable for providing new homes along the western side of the line.
“When looking at the borough of Ealing specifically, a total of 3,152 private and affordable residential units have been built over the last five years in, yet household growth estimates from the Greater London Authority indicated a need for 6,800 new homes over the same period, demonstrating the historic undersupply. As provision of new homes remains restricted in West London, this can only mean more upward pressure on pricing in the long term.”
Rosie Nesbitt, Group Sales and Marketing Director at FABRICA added: “Jigsaw is already transforming West Ealing, harnessing the positive impact of standout architectural design and marrying it with exceptional new transport links. The first and second phases were an effective catalyst for the regeneration of the area and we anticipate that this process will advance with the release of new homes within the next phase. The mix of property types and array of price points will provide both an aspirational yet accessible new home, as well as a solid investment opportunity in an area expected to enjoy significant growth as the regeneration and enhanced connectivity come to fruition.”

The third phase of Green Man Lane’s transformation in Ealing has been approved by members of Ealing Borough Council’s planning committee.
With the masterplan designed by Conran and Partners this phase will provide 136 new homes as well as completing a central public courtyard (begun in the previous phase of development) and a new civic square containing public artwork at the junction of the community link and Green Man Lane.
Rydon’s on-site team is currently working on Phase Two which is already well advanced, delivering 187 new private and affordable homes.
Construction of the new St John’s Primary School is also under way by Rydon and will provide a larger, modern, three-form entry school for the area. The existing school, on an adjacent site, remains fully operational throughout the construction period and will transfer to the new building once fit-out is complete.
Green Man Lane’s regeneration is seeing the replacement of 464 existing local authority flats over a five-hectare site with more than 770 mixed tenure, one to four-bedroom homes. The development also incorporates community facilities including an art café, public parks and landscaped piazzas and play areas.
Tom Rigby, Development Director for Rydon Construction, added: “We have continued to work very closely with Ealing Council to ensure the aspirations and ambitions of local people are met as this exciting scheme flourishes as part of West Ealing’s resurgence. With our partners we can now look to delivering this next part of the regeneration as another inspiring and well connected phase of new homes and public realm.”
David Price, A2Dominion’s Regeneration Director, said: “We are delighted that councillors unanimously approved this next phase of our Green Man Lane regeneration proposals. It was particularly encouraging to hear supportive feedback on the homes delivered so far and the project in general. Securing this next development phase is a testament to the project’s continuing success. We look forward to working further with the local community to help shape and deliver their vision for transforming their neighbourhood.”
Conran and Partners’ Partner/Project Director, Lee Davies said: ‘We are very pleased that Ealing Council has given the go-ahead to our detailed plans for the next phase of this project, which is one of the largest regeneration schemes currently on site in the West London area. It is exciting to see how successful the regeneration has been to date, with the completed homes and new streets integrating successfully with the wider community. It is particularly rewarding to receive such positive feedback from residents who are enjoying their new homes as well as councillors endorsing the continued success of the design. We look forward to continuing to deliver the wider regeneration of the area over the coming years and transforming it in to a successful place for people to live, work and play.”
The success of Green Man Lane was recently highly praised in the G15 London Housing Report for ‘giving residents a voice on potential designs and the overall management of the regeneration process’ and similarly used as a case study for assisting residents affected by welfare reform during regeneration.
