Residents Start To Move In At Ealing Site

Posted 14 April 2021 by Keith Osborne

Ahead of the launch of a final phase, St George has welcomed the first residents at Bogart House at Filmworks...

St George, a member of the Berkeley Group, has welcomed the first residents to Bogart House at Filmworks in Ealing, which features over 200 new contemporary homes inspired by the glamour of the Roaring Twenties.

The first residents were greeted with a variety of personalised gifts from St George and aptly, the red carpet rolled out to welcome them to their new home.

As the site of the former Forum Theatre, Filmworks celebrates Ealing’s cinematic history with careful restoration of the cinema’s original Grade II-listed façade and creation of buildings named after famous actors who starred at nearby Ealing Studios, the birthplace of British cinema. Synonymous with the British film industry, Ealing Studios heralds its global filming location status for Academy Award winning films, such as The Ladykillers, The Theory of Everything and Downton Abbey.

Designed by John Stanley Beard, the original cinema’s classical colonnades create a grand entrance to Filmworks. The Art Deco inspired development will feature an eight-screen Picturehouse cinema with over 1,000 seats, making it the largest Picturehouse cinema outside the West End. The new residents will also be moments from the central piazza, which is set to welcome a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and bars in the coming months. The latest brand to call Ealing home is Amazon, with their first UK Amazon Fresh till-less’ grocery store where customers with the Amazon app can conveniently just walk in and exit without having to stand in a queue or check out.

FilmworksFilmworks is also just moments from Dickens Yard, a development by St George comprising 700 homes, public spaces and a range of amenities. Located between three of Ealing's Victorian landmarks, the Town Hall, the Old Fire Station and the Parish Church of Christ the Saviour, its pedestrian boulevards and piazzas are filled with high end retail outlets, wellness offerings and restaurants, including No 17 Dickens Yard, GAIL’s Bakery, Gymbox, and independent greengrocer Reineta.

Stephen Kirwan, operations director for St George West London, said: “We are delighted to welcome our first residents to Filmworks, who will be joining a community and neighbourhood which is already thriving with the recreational offerings available. Our objective at Filmworks has always been to create an exciting new residential and leisure district, which still retains its 1920s heritage whilst also offering a host of modern-day amenities from shops and restaurants to an eight-screen Picturehouse cinema and we’re proud to see our vision becoming a reality.”

Adjacent to Filmworks is the recently renovated Grade I-listed Pitzhanger Manor, the former home of renowned British architect Sir John Soane. Pitzhanger Manor sits within Walpole Park, a beautifully landscaped original parkland which is one of the finest green spaces in Ealing and includes the serpentine lake, a walled kitchen garden and a pond with fountains. Run by Ealing Council, Walpole Park can be enjoyed by the local community and visitors alike.

This evolving neighbourhood is playing a significant role in the wider regeneration of Ealing ahead of the arrival of the Elizabeth Line at Ealing Broadway station. Once open, the new station will halve journey times to central London, with travel to Bond Street in 11 minutes, Liverpool Street in 18 minutes and Canary Wharf in 25 minutes.

A final phase is being launched soon at Filmworks. Find out more about current St George developments.
