Major West London refurbishment for Stanhope

Major West London refurbishment for Stanhope

Lendlease‘s construction business has been selected for a major refurbishment project at White City Place – formerly known as the BBC’s Media Village – on Wood Lane in West London.

The project is to refurbish three buildings at White City Place – WestWorks, Mediaworks, and Garden House – in order to create state-of-the-art commercial office facilities and help drive regeneration of the local area.

Contracts for the three buildings have now been signed with a total value of £80 million, and further works are currently being finalised for £7 million of landscaping.

The developers are Stanhope – a longstanding client of Lendlease’s construction business – together with Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo.

Neil Martin, Managing Director of Lendlease’s construction business, said: “We’re excited to be working with our longstanding client Stanhope as well as Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo on White City Place.”

Stanhope is also transforming Television Centre into a vibrant mixed-use development, featuring a total of 950 new homes, office space for the creative industries, restaurants and cafes, state-of-the-art studios for the BBC and a Soho House members club and hotel.

White City Place sits on 17 acres of land adjacent to the Imperial College campus, and is very close to White City and Wood Lane tube stations.

Plans for the area include up to 2,500 high quality homes, over two million sq ft of offices, new public spaces, an enhanced world-class shopping offer and a hub for academia, innovation and start-ups.
