Allies and Morrison submits plans for White City offices

  • Comment

Allies and Morrison has submitted plans for three new office blocks on the BBC Media Village site in west London 

The 100,000m² scheme marks the third phase of the emerging 7ha business district now known as White City Place.

The AJ100 practice is already working with developer Stanhope and its funding partners Mitsui and AIMCo on the refurbishment of a number of existing buildings within the district.

The latest project features a trio of new-build blocks, the tallest 21 storeys, on the 1.6ha Gateway Site (shown on the map below in red) close to BBC Television Centre - a sister scheme to the south masterplanned for Stanhope by AHMM (shown in blue).

At White City Place, the developer has already pre-let space totalling 37,161m² to the BBC in the Broadcast Centre, Energy Centre and Lighthouse buildings.

A second phase (shown in orange above) was launched earlier this year and includes three refurbished office schemes, namely the MediaWorks (21,460m²), Garden House (3,716m²) and West Works (27,500m²).

What’s what on the Gateway Site

  • Gateway East will be the largest building on the site - 21 storeys - and will front onto the newly created Arrival Square and Wood Lane. The building will provide 63,181m² of office floorspace and 2,182m² of shopping space. The current programme would see Gateway East completed and occupied in 2020.
  • Gateway Central will be a major new office building providing 35,226² of office and retail floorspace. The building will be of varied height, rising from 4 to 12 storeys with shops, cafés and restaurants at ground level.
  • Gateway West, the smallest of the three proposed new buildings, will be a low-rise structure of 4 storeys providing 3,064m² of office floor space. The small scale increases the range of office types available at White City Place, and will attract smaller employers.
