A memorial garden will be created at Griffin Park to commemorate the history of the ground the team have played at since 1904.
Brentford will relocate to a new 20,000-seater stadium at Lionel Road South.
Willmott Dixon has been selected as the residential contractor for the entire project, also bringing forward 910 homes adjacent to the new ground, as well as community facilities and shops.
Of the 910 units, Prime Place will deliver 572, which will be for sale, while Willmott Dixon's private rental company, be:here, will provide 338 homes for rent.
