EALING Central and Acton MP Rupa Huq joined Barratt London to celebrate the topping out of Soleil Apartments at Western Circus, Acton.

Western Circus is part of a huge project to give the town a new identity.

The MP used a ceremonial trowel to place the final brick on Soleil, the latest apartment building in the Western Circus development.

With the promised arrival of Crossrail, all eyes are on Acton and its planned £26bn transformation.

Following the announcement of the 1,600-acre Park Royal regeneration site, Western Circus is one of the first developments available to buy in Acton.

The 364 new homes will be complemented by a Lidl supermarket and community café. There will be 142 officially affordable apartments and 222 private, due to be completed from February.

Seventy per cent of the homes at Western Circus have been sold, with prices starting from £435,000.
