Hopkins submits plans for new ITV headquarters

  • Comment

Hopkins has submitted plans to redevelop the headquarters and studios of broadcaster ITV on London’s South Bank

The proposal involves demolition of buildings on the site between Waterloo and Blackfriars bridges and construction of new homes, retail units and offices, as well as the studios.

In a planning document prepared on behalf of ITV, Hopkins said the existing London Television Centre production centre was becoming outdated.

The design and access statement said: ‘The building fabric and services are dated and no longer support the needs of ITV, nor reflect the open and collaborative way in which ITV works.’

‘A new building also has the potential to strengthen and contribute to the Strategic Cultural Area.’

Two new buildings are proposed, of up to 14 and 31 storeys, with two basement levels. These would provide about 48,000m² of offices and television studios, 210m² of retail space and 213 residential dwellings.

The proposals include associated vehicle and cycle parking, access works, servicing and landscaping.

ITV executive chairman Peter Bazalgette said: ‘The South Bank is London’s vibrant creative and cultural quarter, which ITV has been proud to be a part of for more than 45 years.

’I’m thrilled that we are set to build a fantastic new headquarters on our existing site, which will be our home for many decades to come.’

A consultation on the plans will run until early October. Construction could begin by the end of this decade.
