A major regeneration scheme for Hounslow town centre began in January with a ground-breaking ceremony attended by council leader Steve Curran, developer Barratt London and housing trust L&Q.
High Street Quarter will deliver a multiplex cinema, along with a range of shops, restaurants and eateries, which will all be set around a new town square.
The 2.48-ha former brownfield site, now known as High Street Quarter, is situated within Hounslow's town centre, close to Hounslow Central and Hounslow East stations and is centred around a 27-storey residential tower and a public square at its heart.
The project will also include 528 homes, of which 41% is earmarked as affordable.
Curran said: "Today marks the start of work on what has been an eagerly anticipated development that will not only provide an improved retail and restaurant offer in Hounslow town centre, but also deliver much-needed housing, 41 per cent of which will be affordable.
"It will give a real boost to Hounslow, not just as a locality but also to the whole borough, helping to create a landmark destination that will draw both residents and visitors."
