THE BBC Television Centre in White City is to be opened up to the public for the first time, under its new guise as a site for hotels, flats and offices.
Developers unveiled plans yesterday to turn the landmark building into a mixed-use scheme including 1,000 new homes, a hotel and offices as well as new BBC headquarters and studios.
The 53-year-old centre was sold to Stanhope and its backers for £200m in July last year.
Stanhope said that some offices would be “aimed at occupiers in the creative sector providing new employment opportunities”.
A cinema, health club, restaurants and cafes are also planned on the site, parts of which are Grade II listed.
