The £26 billion redevelopment will further enhance West London’s appeal, which has seen the recent expansion and growth of White City and Europe’s largest shopping centre, Westfield. The area will also be home to a vast 25 acre, £3 billion new campus for Imperial College London, one of the UK’s leading universities.

Taking inspiration from classical proportions of architecture, One West Point has an elegant vertical form which is articulated with a textured ‘weave’ created by alternating balconies on each floor; this produces a captivating jewelled effect and provides a unique visual interest to the building. The elegant glass fronted tower will stand majestically in this new modern landscape created in West London. The structure will be the tallest in West London, spanning 42 storeys. One West Point will offer 275 highly specified 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments and penthouses, each with private balcony or terrace, all offering a luxury lifestyle second to none. The top 10 floors of the building will include exclusive access to the private sky garden and terrace bar on the roof. The apartments will allow an abundance of light via the floor-to-ceiling windows to complement the modern, industrial feel created by the inclusion of wide panelled oak flooring and exposed brick walls.
