Stanhope has revealed new designs for their redevelopment of TV Centre, and announced new architects joining the team.
The plans approved in December 2013, aimed to open TV Centre up to the public offering entertainment and leisure facilities, public open space, offices aimed at occupiers in the creative sector and a media business hub as well as around 1,000 new homes and a boutique hotel, together with pedestrian access through the site providing connectivity with the local area, including Hammersmith Park.
Stanhope have been working on revised plans since, which they say aim to address aspects of the site that could be made more efficient and sustainable in the longer term.
They also want to increase the number of family homes while responding to issues raised in previous consultations and enhancing public access through the site. The plans are now also understood to include a new private members club run by Soho House in a ten storey block replacing the Stage 4 and 5 buildings which will also include office space.
The plans also look to amend the use on the restaurant block site from housing to office space in a new nine storey building fronting Hammersmith Park.
They plan a revised submission in May 2014, and ahead of that are showing the plans at an exhibition.
At the same time, it has been announced that architects dRMM have been appointed to the professional team to design family homes within the former Drama Block, joining lead project architects AHMM, and Duggan Morris, HOK and Maccreanor Lavington.
