The plans for the brownfield site include 593 new homes and a canal side leisure hub including a cinema, food store, restaurants and cafes. The proposals also preserve the Grade II listed Glaxo House and include new public space.
The plans will deliver a mixed use scheme for the southern part of the site, which has been largely empty since GSK moved out in 2009. The northern site is currently occupied by higher education college GSM London and a modern HQ office building which is available to let.
The site, owned by Stolkin Greenford, has been the subject of consultation since 2011. The project team was led by Iceni Projects which provided planning, community engagement, transport and sustainability advice. The team also included architects Flanagan Lawrence and asset managers XLB Property.
The application will now be referred to the Greater London Authority for final approval. Reserved matters applications are expected to be submitted later in 2014.
The outline plans were recommended for approval by council officers.
