B&Q site development – new plans for Hudson Square

It’s two years since plans first emerged for the B&Q site (on the North Circular/Gunnersbury Avenue just north of Chiswick roundabout) for six blocks of flats (mostly for students) up to 22 storeys high plus a cinema (if my memory is correct).  Those plans have been shelved. The proposal is now for “the world’s first fully integrated customer-centric car showcase, exhibition, gaming and technology experience” with restaurants, retail, a hotel and residential units.

There is nothing more on the official website than is in the leaflet (see below) that flopped onto my doorstep today showing an aerial view of the site, a photo of B&Q and a representative location map of limited helpfulness.  The feedback section is a simple Yes/No/Unsure question with a small space for comments.

For more information you’ll have to go to a public exhibition:

  • Tuesday, 19th March from 3.30pm to 7.30pm at the Musical Museum in Brentford
  • Thursday, 21st March from 3.30pm to 7.30pm at the Musical Museum in Brentford
