The London Borough of Ealing has given planning consent for a twin tower 700 home scheme at North Acton.
The plans involve the demolition of the existing Holiday Inn on the site, and the mixed-use redevelopment of the site to provide two linked buildings of 45 and 55 storeys, including up to 702 homes, a 159 room hotel, flexible workspace, restaurant, and flexible retail space. The scheme will provide 35% affordable housing.
Speaking on behalf of the client, Aldau Development, Taco van Heusden, Chief Investment Officer, said: “From the outset Aldau’s vision was to create a flagship destination in this part of Ealing, while not only improving connectivity but creating a sense of place through new homes, improved public realm and exciting new facilities, such as restaurants and cafes.
“This is a real opportunity to open up this part of Portal Way, which acts as the Southern Gateway to Old Oak Common, whilst realising the new opportunities presented by Crossrail and HS2 infrastructure improvements.”
Architect KPF’s Design Principal, John Bushell added: “4 Portal Way presents a great new opportunity for this part of London. KPF specialise in mixed used schemes and this brings to life our vision for a mixed use ‘hub’ with a hotel, flexible workspace, residential use and a public venue at the top of the building.”
