Apartments in a new west London skyscraper go on sale from mid-November 2013, priced from £341,000. The Tower is part of Great West Quarter, a 13-acre precinct built around the splendid art deco former headquarters of the BOAC airline and Glaxosmithkline in Brentford.
Butting right up against the M4, it is an unmistakeably urban address. As well as the motorway, homes overlook a one-acre central piazza with shops, an art gallery, a GP surgery and a crèche. There is an on-site concierge and car club, a taxi rank for licensed black cabs, and a new bus route runs through the development.
A giant underground parking area with space for 1,050 cars lies beneath the site. Call 0844 811 4334.
