"James Murray, the Deputy Mayor of London and Liz Peace CBE, the Chairman of the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) have officially started construction on the first homes at Old Oak.
"The two joined Queens Park Rangers and Genesis Housing Association who are demolishing a derelict hostel that will make way for a new West London neighbourhood consisting of 605 new homes, including a high proportion (40%) of affordable homes. They are the first homes that will be built at Old Oak and Park Royal and will start the transformation of the area.
"QPR had acquired a few pieces of land in the area when they were hoping to build a new stadium there. They have now switched that focus to the Linford Christie stadium, south of Wormwood Scrubs, and are looking to develop their land holdings in Old Oak in line with OPDC plans to provide funding for that new stadium."
