Apartments in Kew Bridge, Kew Bridge West and GWQ have greatly improved the housing stock while the transformation of the old Griffin Park football stadium into a 75 home development is sure to bring even more prosperity. Brentford residents have easy access to the neighbourhoods of Chiswick and Richmond via the A4 and Kew Bridge respectively and Heathrow Airport is a 10 minute taxi ride away.
