Capco tweak Earls Court designs

Earls COurt villageCapital & Counties have revised some aspects of the designs for developments at Earls Court as part of the ongoing consultation.

The tweak involves a reduction in height in key areas, specifically around the edges, and a slimming of the tall buildings. This produces a reduction in the quantum of commercial space – from 10.3m sq ft to 10.1m – but leaves the overall number of new homes unchanged at 7,500.

A Capco spokesperson said the changes were a response to the ongoing consultation, and aimed to make the development more “of London”, and to improve the development setting within the current context of the area.
