One West Point breaks ground

The ground-breaking of City and Docklands One West Point in North Acton took place in January. The CEO of City and Docklands, Gary Sacks, and Rory O’Connor of O’Shea, were joined by Rupa Huq MP for Ealing and Acton and Councillor Peter Mason, Ealing portfolio holder for housing, planning and transformation, Tony Clements, executive director of regeneration and housing and Lucy Taylor, director of regeneration and planning.

On completion One West Point will feature 578 homes across four buildings, with the highest at 42 storeys, in the OPDC in West London. The development which is now fully funded, is due for completion at the end of 2021, and will provide a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with a 30per cent affordable housing allocation. Residents will also benefit from top of the range amenities and services.

At the lower levels, One West Point will provide a state of the art co-working office space and coffee bar on the ground floor, creating a community hub at the centre of the development and up to 170 new jobs once complete. 275 units in the 42-storey tower are being sold. City & Docklands are retaining 303 units which will be run under its PRS brand – AWOL – ‘A Way Of Life’.

“We are proud to create a legacy (of) homes and communities that will stand the test of time.” Gary Sacks, CEO, City and Docklands

Gary Sacks, CEO of City & Docklands said, “We are excited to deliver such an exciting project that is set to transform west London and the wider Old Oak Common regeneration area providing much needed London homes at a time when housing provision in the capital is critically required. Community and lifestyle has been at the very heart of this project, and we are proud to create a legacy (of) homes and communities that will stand the test of time.”

Lucy Taylor, Director of Regeneration and Planning, Ealing Council, said; “North Acton is definitely in the midst of a major transition from a predominately industrial area on the edge of the borough to a district with busy mix of quality residential stock, student accommodation, educational institutions and work hub space – with great connections into central London.”

“As the area expands there will be more amenities for the area’s growing population – making North Acton an area to keep your eye on.”
