Two new residential buildings, which will be the tallest in Wembley , are set to replace Chesterfield House in the town centre.
Brent Council's planning committee approved the plans on Wednesday (April 6), giving the green light for construction to begin.
The 21 and 26 storey towers are to provide 239 new homes of which 28% are said to be affordable as well as new community space, retail and commercial space on the ground floor, and a new public square.
The development will also generate nearly £5.5million under the Community Infrastructure Levy, to be spent by the council on local services and infrastructure.
The proposals were approved by the committee following a discussion around height and density, the impact on the area and the amount of affordable housing provided.
A spokesperson for Brent Council said: “Wembley is our biggest growth area for which we have great ambitions.
“We are already seeing a large amount of development and investment around the stadium but this approval sets the scene and could be the catalyst for further growth and investment on the high street.
"We aim to make Wembley and Brent a better place to live, work and play. As such, we are pleased to see a development come forward which will provide affordable housing, community space, retail uses and a new public square for local people as well as generate over £5million to go towards local community facilities.
"The buildings, although tall, are appropriate in this area given that it is one of our key growth areas."
