Developer of BBC Television Centre sets out masterplan

City A.M. Reporter
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.
