The new Tesco superstore planned for Hounslow's downtrodden town centre could create 350 new jobs - and free parking for shoppers.
The supermarket and free parking spaces beside Hounslow Bus Garage will transform the eastern end of Hounslow town centre according to developers St James's Investments as they hold a three-day public exhibition on the scheme.
Two largely empty office blocks - Hounslow House and the Black Arrow building - in London Road will be bulldozed to make way for a Tesco, flats and a multi-storey car park.
James Hepburn, the company's development manager, said its plans were in their infancy and called on residents to help shape the future of their town.
"A new Tesco store and new homes will attract more shoppers and help revitalise this area of Hounslow town centre, as well as providing convenient parking, shopping and better choice for local people.
"We want to get the proposals right and deliver the best scheme possible for Hounslow town centre, which is why we are holding a public exhibition at an early stage."
The east of Hounslow High Street is well overdue a facelift, with dozens of shops and pubs having closed in recent years and surrounding streets plagued by flytippers.
Hounslow Council is drawing up a 'masterplan' for the wider regeneration of Hounslow town centre, including the long-awaited second phase of Key Site 1 - currently a pot-holed car park beside Asda.
A public exhibition about the plans takes place at Hounslow House, 730 London Road, Hounslow, today and tomorrow from midday to 8pm and Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
