The hoardings are up and work has started on the huge development in Hounslow town centre.
Barratt Homes confirmed building works are under way at the Hounslow High Street Quarter site.
Hoarding signs were put up on Monday September 25 while site staff facilities and construction work started on Monday (October 2).
The development will feature 527 homes of which 216 will be affordable homes.
It will also include a multiscreen cinema, shops, restaurants and eateries.
The developers said the overall project is due for completion in 2021.
The following are key milestone dates in the project:
- The first new homes (including affordable) to be completed in 2019
- A new cinema and commercial premises to open in early 2020
- Overall project due to be completed in 2021
As a result of the development two car parks have been closed in Alexandra Road and Holloway Street.
Parking elsewhere in and around the town centre will remain as normal.
Councillor Amrit Mann, deputy leader of Hounslow Council, previously said: “The regeneration in our borough is continuing to gather pace and we are all excited at the new developments.
“These are part of our commitments we have made to build and provide more good quality homes, including affordable homes and support economic growth and improve our town centres.
“We will also ensure there is the minimum disruption and residents can continue to use and park at our town centres as normal.”
The housing scheme is being delivered by Barratt Homes and will see almost half (41%) of the flats provide more affordable housing in the borough, as promised by the local authority.
Parking will be back on the site once the development opens its doors in 2020.
