    The Bonnington Group has been granted planning permission by the*London Borough of Hounslow*to develop the Gillette building into a hotel and "business park", which will add to the West Cross industrial estate, of which Gillette Corner forms the western end. However, these plans have not yet been approved by the*Mayor of London.

    Gillette moved out in 2006 when production was relocated to Poland.

    It was sold to the Bonnington Group and permission was granted for the redevelopment into a hotel and business park

    Nothing online you say? :p

    If you're still unsure, just go have a look, what's the worst it can do? Have a few back up plans etc.
