RESIDENTIAL landlord Essential Living has submitted plans to build 500 homes on the site of a former perfume factory, in what will be the first major scheme inside the Old Oak Common regeneration area. The Perfume Factory, which has been named after the Elizabeth Arden factory that used to sit on the North Acton site, will provide a mixture of studios, one-to three-bedroom flats and mews houses for the private rental market. The 2.8-acre scheme forms part of Mayor Boris Johnson’s Old Oak Common and Park Royal Opportunity Area, which plans to turn the wider 2,300-acre site into a “superhub” supported by the arrival of Crossrail and High Speed 2 (HS2). If the plans win approval, work will start in late 2017, for completion by the end of 2020.
