Work on Ealing Cinema has begun but developers have announced commercial space will be reduced to make way for more homes.
St George began work on the Ealing Filmworks site – the site of the former Empire Cinema with a target completion date in 2019. St George bought the site from Land Securities earlier in 2016. The consented plans include a 1,000 seat, eight screen multiplex cinema, as well as new homes, restaurants, shops, bars and cafés.
But Getwestlondon reports St George has said it will review the planning permission and look to reduce commercial floorspace and increase the number of homes with a revised application early in 2017.
