WCN Editorial Team 5 Jan 2022 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Kier has secured a contract from joint venture (JV) developers Stanhope, Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo to build 142 new affordable homes at Television Centre, London.

The new homes will be constructed for housing association Peabody in two new buildings, named Macfarlane Place.

The two new blocks will be constructed on the former BBC multi-storey car park located on Wood Lane, W12, opposite Westfield.

They form part of the wider Television Centre development that will eventually have approximately 950 homes.

Stanhope is working as the development manager for Television Centre, while Cantillon was appointed as the demolition contractor for the multi-storey car park.

Designed by Maccreanor Lavington Architects, the new buildings will deliver 34 London Living Rent, 71 London Affordable Rent, and 37 homes for Shared Ownership.

They will feature 68 one-bedroom, 67 two-bedroom and 7 three-bedroom apartments, with new public realm and retail space which was retained by the JV.

Stanhope stated that the JV is working closely with Transport for London to improve the wider area for the local community.

Construction work of Macfarlane Place is scheduled to begin in March this year and is anticipated to be delivered in early 2024.

Upon completion, Peabody will be responsible for managing the new affordable homes.

Stanhope Property & Commercial director Jonathan Trout said: “Construction of 142 affordable homes, and the ongoing construction of a new office building at 1 Wood Crescent, Television Centre, shows the healthy state of the property market in White City.

“We are looking forward to working with Kier and delivering much needed affordable homes for residents in Hammersmith & Fulham alongside Peabody who share our confidence and long-term commitment for the area.”
