Gateway is part of the White City Place development and will consist of three new office buildings to be named Gateway West, Gateway Central and Gateway East on the site of the former BBC Media Village. The three buildings will provide 1,110,809 sq ft of accommodation and together will create some 8,000 new jobs in White City.
Gateway East will be 21 storeys and will front to the newly created Arrival Square and Wood Lane. The building will provide 607,763 sq ft of employment space on the upper floors and the ground floor will provide 20,947 sq ft of complementary retail and restaurant floor space.
Gateway Central site will provide 360,000 sq ft of employment floor space with cafes and restaurants at ground level and will vary in height from four to 12 storeys. This has already been pre-let to L’Oréal for their new headquarters.
The final building on the Gateway West site will be a low-rise three and four storey employment building of 30,000 sq ft.
The three new proposed buildings will be in addition to White City Place’s existing buildings; MediaWorks, Westworks and Garden House which are already occupied with multiple biotech companies (Synthace, Autolus, Novartis, Gamma Delta, Open Cell and Adaptate Biotherapeutics) as well as the digital fashion house YOOX Net a Porter, creative co-working Huckletree and ITV Studios.
