Unit at 309-317 Chiswick High Road has been empty since 2019

Magnet, the nationwide fitted kitchen company is preparing to open a showroom on Chiswick High Road.

The company is creating a showroom at 309-317 Chiswick High Road at the base of the Botanic House development and has applied to LB Hounslow to install new doors and windows and new signage.

The unit they have their sights on spans 12 square meters, equivalent to three standard shop units and has been unoccupied for the last three years.

Previously it was known as Conduit House, a three-storey building from the sixties that once housed Rice, Mailboxes Etc, and Yupa’s Thai Kitchen. In 2019, as part of £25 million redevelopment scheme, Conduit House was demolished and transformed into Botanic House, featuring 21 modern flats on its upper floors.

The grand unveiling of Botanic House coincided with the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, and as a result, the ground floor units has stood empty for years.

The ground floor units of Botanic House had been advertised for rent at £215,000 a year.

The planning application, with more details, can found under reference number P/2023/1472 on the Hounslow Council website’s planning section.
