Television Centre, White City
New homes are going on sale tomorrow at the iconic former home of the BBC in west London. One to three bedroom apartments will go on the market, all with balconies overlooking Hammersmith Park’s Japanese ornamental garden, which was created in 1910 as part of the Japan-Britain exhibition. They set to be finished next summer, with the wider scheme opening to the public and first residents later this year, as part of an £8bn, 10-year regeneration of the neighbourhood. At Television Centre, this means 950 new homes in total, with new restaurants and office space, including a new Soho House private members club, Bluebird Cafe and House Gym.
