White City is becoming a true West London destination, with excellent transport connections, unrivalled shopping at Westfield, innovation campus from Imperial College, cultural beacon BBC, creative hub White City Place, and thousands of quality new homes.
Westfield London’s second phase comprises an additional 750,000 sq ft of new retail, cafés, restaurants and leisure, bringing the UK’s No.1 ranked shopping centre (Source: CACI) up to a total of 425 outlets. 250,000 sq ft is dedicated to a new department store for John Lewis, set to open in March 2018.
This world-leading science-based university is investing £3bn in a 25-acre site, creating a new hub designed to sit at the intersection of commerce and industry.
Berkeley St James has secured planning for up to 1,465 new homes over the next fifteen years.
White City Place is a creative business district with 700,000 sq ft of new office space, while 3,000 BBC staff will continue to make the area a vibrant and creative working environment.
Transport for London plans to open 31 of its railway arches near Wood Lane Tube station. Largely unused, TfL aims to transform these arches into a diverse mix of commercial, leisure and retail space as well as creating new pedestrian passageways to improve connectivity in the neighbourhood and introduce new cycle parking.
The initial phase will include bridging over the Central line tracks opposite Television Centre and creating a major new public park for local residents and visitors to enjoy, with direct access through the railway arches to John Lewis and Westfield’s extension.
“It’s a brilliant area; it’s very well positioned. And I believe strongly that White City will pop and will change dramatically over the next couple of years.”
