Stanhope, Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo acquired Media Village in White City in 2015, adding to their long-term commitment and investment into this burgeoning West London hub through Television Centre.
Located just 12 minutes from Bond Street station, White City is set to create London’s most exciting mixed-use quarter.
The organisations behind the ambitious plans for the White City area include Imperial College London, Westfield London, Berkeley St James and Stanhope, who are together implementing a shared vision including up to 5,000 high quality homes, over 2m sq ft of offices, new public spaces, an enhanced world-class shopping offer and a hub for academia, innovation and start-ups.
Media village has been renamed White City Place and sits on 17 acres of land adjacent to the Imperial College campus, White City tube station (Central line) and Wood Lane tube station (Hammersmith & City line).
Total refurbishment is now complete and over 3,000 BBC staff will continue to make White City Place a vibrant working environment. Combined with the future development of new office buildings on the phase 2 element, we will be creating a new urban office quarter of a scale similar to Chiswick Park approaching 2 million sq ft.
The joint venture has also transformed the common areas and introducted carefully curated extensive food and beverage offers to create a new and distinctive place on the west side of London. Office tenants include the digital fashion house YOOX Net a Porter, the Royal College of Art, Huckletree and ITV Studios Daytime.
