London mayor Boris Johnson has given the go-ahead for the £500m redevelopment of Ealing town centre including that of the Arcadia Centre.

Last month architecture and design practice HKR Architects, on behalf of Glenkerrin, was given the ‘green light’ by planners at Ealing Council. Councillors voted by a nine votes to one to approve the planning application.

Despite being substantially scaled down from the original proposal for a 40 storey tower they still attracted opposition from groups such as Save Ealing's Centre. The Irish Developer's plans include hundreds of flats and shops on the site, along with a 26-storey building against the current maximum in the area of eight storeys.

Mayor Johnson applauded the final design, saying: "Urban design and architecture of this quality will make a real difference to the residents of, businesses in, and visitors to Ealing."

Ealing town will also be one of only 10 in London to benefit from the £16bn Crossrail project.
