The second phase of the £500m scheme to redevelop the Television Centre site is set to begin following the acquisition of the remainder or the site by Mitsui Fudosan.

Phase 2 comprises a total of flat homes in four separate plots including a modern crescent shaped block of 180 apartments and a 25 storey tall building of 167 apartments for completion in 2026. In total there will be 511 more flats built at the site before the completion of the scheme on top of over 430 that have already been developed.

The work will follow the masterplan established by lead architects AHMM and further open up the site to local residents, visitors and workers by the creation of a second entrance on Wood Lane and pedestrian connection through to Hammersmith Park via interlinking streets.

The project is being undertaken by Mitsui Fudosan and Stanhope.

Designed by Maccreanor Lavington Architects, the new buildings will replace the now demolished former BBC multi-storey car park on Wood Lane, W12, opposite Westfield. 1 Wood Crescent is under construction and recently ‘topped out’ and is due to complete in early 2023.
