Irish developer Glenkerrin has reduced its controversial residential tower in Ealing, west London.

Its revised proposals mean there will be 577 apartments over 24-storeys instead of 704 over 26-storeys as originally planned.

Glenkerris said that the ‘revised tall building will bear to one side of the railway track only and has been dramatically reduced in both size and scale since the earlier proposals to an appropriate level for the existing character of Ealing Town Centre.’

Around 20% of the homes will be affordable social housing.

In February, the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) slammed Glenkerrin’s 4.2 acre Ealing development plans, saying they were ‘still not of the standard that the town deserves’.

Local opposition group Save Ealing’s Centre (SEC) remain opposed and are gathering support to oppose Glenkerrin’s new plans by November 28.
