Amro Living’s plans for The Wiltern, a proposed 22 storey block near the Hoover Building in Ealing have been refused.
The plans, designed by HTA Design’s, had attracted some local criticism, and been criticised by Historic England, which said the new building might undermine the “landmark status of the Hoover Building”.
Amro had planned to build 305 homes on the Tesco petrol station site, and part of the car park, for the store which occupies the Grade II listed art-deco Hoover Building. The scheme had been recommended for approval by officers, but councillors voted against the scheme, arguing it would have a detrimental impact on the Hoover Building.
HTA said its part 22, part 10-storey scheme had been designed to respect and complement the architecture of the Hoover Building.
