  • Waterway Apartments, the latest phase of Barratt London’s Hayes Village development, set to attract owner-occupiers and investors

  • The regeneration project is located in one of London’s top regeneration areas, benefitting from quick links into London’s city centre and out via the Elizabeth Line, making it an attractive investment opportunity

Award-winning housebuilder, Barratt London, has launched its highly anticipated next phase of its Hayes Village regeneration scheme in West London. Waterway Apartments will be offering 71 new properties this winter, with a charming setting and views across the Grand Union Canal.

Due for completion in Summer 2025 and launching exclusively in Hong Kong this month [January], the Waterway Apartments are located in a quiet corner of Hayes Village, offering a diverse collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. All homes are being built on the grounds of the former Nestle factory, which once stood at the heart of this landmark development. Living at Hayes Village you can take advantage of nine acres of green space, a residents’ gym, an outdoor play area with quick links to London Paddington via the Elizabeth Line.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments offer spacious, cleverly designed living spaces that are filled with natural light. Open-plan living areas feature full-height windows, and every kitchen is equipped with a range of modern appliances and a contemporary design, perfect for cooking and entertaining friends and family.

Bathrooms and en suites are modern and stylish and are finished in attractive ceramic tiling. All homes within Waterway Apartments have their own private balcony or terrace, providing a generously sized extension of the living space, ideal for outdoor dining.

Mandy Wong, Head of International Residential at JLL in Asia Pacific, comments: “We expect the new phase of homes at Hayes Village to be a popular choice amongst overseas investors. As well as appealing to relocators moving to the UK, the development will also offer buyers the opportunity to reap the rewards of London’s strong rental yields and capital gains potential.”

Craig Carson, Managing Director at Barratt West London adds: “Hayes Village is a heritage-led project with strong links to the past. The new apartments being established here celebrate the site’s rich industrial history, whilst creating a truly unique new London village. Our latest phase, Waterway Apartments, presents the next opportunity for buyers to secure a new home in a great canalside location, with plenty of options within the grounds for people who want to keep fit. This development is an exciting new prospect for Hayes, bringing a vibrant residential community to the area. With extensive amenities and excellent commuter links, it is perfect for both young families and city workers.”

Residents at Hayes Village will be reminded of the factory’s unique chocolate legacy around every corner, from ‘Nestle Avenue’ to ‘Milk Street’. The iconic London site was home to many landmark inventions, including the world's first instant coffee, the discovery of white chocolate and the famous Milkybar.

After closing its doors in 2014, the redevelopment of the 30-acre site is due to significantly revitalise the immediate area. Due for completion in 2027, Hayes Village will provide 1,500 new homes to the community and open nine-acres of previously unused green space. This includes a 1.3km walking trail, 200m running track, the redevelopment of the canal frontage, a new public square, and a convenient footpath from the historic green to Hayes and Harlington train station – a key beneficiary of Crossrail.

Road connections are as good as the train connections from the development, with the M4 and M25 motorways within easy reach, and Heathrow Airport approximately 10 minutes away.

Prices at Hayes Village start from £327,000 (HKD3.24 million). For further information, please visit
