Berkeley subsidiary behind development
Berkeley subsidiary St James has been given the green light for a 527-home development in White City.
Designed by architect Pilbrow and Partners, the west London scheme will include a pair of 22-storey and 32-storey towers built directly behind White City tube station and follows nearly two years of consultation with Hammersmith and Fulham council.
The developer said it will act as a gateway to Imperial College London’s White City campus and will provide the college with 10,000sq ft of commercial space and a 35% provision of affordable housing for college staff and other key workers.
The scheme is the next phase of the ongoing White City Living development, a 2,300-home regeneration project.
The wider masterplan for White City Living includes a park linked to nearby Wood Lane by a series of bridges.
St James said the landscaping for the park has been inspired by the Japan-British Exhibition held in White City in 1910.
