The BFLS designed 275,000 sq ft scheme on the former car park site next to Hammersmith’s Metropolitan/Circle Line station announced it had forward funded the first phase of development last year and aims to complete this phase, at the south end of the site fronting Lyric Square, in 2013.
Work on site will commence immediately on the first phase of the development comprising 110,000 sq ft of prime office space as well as 6,000 sq ft of cafes, restaurants and public space.
Julian Barwick, Director, Development Securities said: “Our scheme at Hammersmith Grove is set to deliver some of the best new office space in West London into a tightly supplied market. The scheme will play an important part in the regeneration of Hammersmith’s town centre, attracting first-class occupiers to this prime location. Wates are an experienced and quality contractor and we look forward to working with them to deliver this scheme.”
Andy Willats, Director for Wates Construction said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the project at Hammersmith Grove. Not only will we be delivering a first class project, but we will be playing a major part in the overall regeneration of Hammersmith.”
