Television Centre: Phase Two

Completing the vision - with three Stirling-prize winning architects

The second phase of Television Centre comprises a total of 511 homes in four separate plots designed by a stellar line-up of Stirling prize-winning architectural practices, following the masterplan established by lead architects AHMM. As part of this phase 142 much-needed affordable homes for the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham will also be delivered across two buildings fronting Wood Lane.
The development of a cluster of buildings are designed to be distinctive and have a character of their own, complementing each other and the buildings established across the wider estate.
The development of phase 2 will complete the masterplan and further open up the site to local residents by the creation of a second entrance on Wood Lane and pedestrian connection through to Hammersmith Park via interlinking urban streets.
Development is anticipated to commence in late-2019.
The buildings comprise:
- Plot E
Modern crescent shaped block of 180 apartments by dRMM
- Plot F
A collection of 22 townhouses set around a 'village green' by Mikhail Riches
- Plot G
Contemporary 25 storey tall building of 167 apartments by AHMM
- Plot H
Demolition has begun (June 2021) on Plot H to facilitate the construction of 142 new affordable homes for Peabody in two new buildings called Macfarlane Place at Television Centre, London, W12. Demolition will take at least 35 weeks and construction of Macfarlane Place will commence in 2022 with delivery expected in 2024.
Designed by Maccreanor Lavington Architects, the new buildings will replace the existing former BBC multi-storey car park on Wood Lane, opposite Westfield. The new buildings will provide 71 London Affordable Rent, 34 London Living Rent and 37 homes for Shared Ownership.
The buildings will provide 68 x 1 bed, 67 x 2 bed and 7 x 3 bed apartments, with new public realm and retail space retained by the JV fronting Wood Lane. Peabody will be responsible for managing the homes when completed. The JV is working closely with Transport for London, who own the adjacent arches below the elevated Hammersmith & City line, to help improve the wider area for the local community.
