London Octopus scrapped as Galliard Homes buys site outright for £15m

Plans to build a 50-metre high office complete with billboards have fallen through, as a developer has bought out the site with plans to create a residential tower.

The so-called London Octopus, which critics claimed would have turned Chiswick into the next Piccadilly Circus, have gone out of the window after Galliard Homes acquired full ownership of the 0.5 acre site in Hounslow for £15m.
