UK: The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham has granted planning consent to the mixed-use renovation of the BBC television Centre.

A revised masterplan submitted by developers Stanhope and Mitsui Fudosan has been granted consent. It includes a boutique hotel and branch of the Soho Housemembers’ club, 1,000 residential units, two office buildings, restaurants, shops and cafes.

Architects AHMM say the Television Centre forecourt and façade, Studio 1 and the central Helios Plaza will be preserved, in an attempt to retain the historic heritage of the site.

Located at White City in West London, the BBC Television Centre served as the headquarters of BBC Television from 1960 to 2013. A joint venture between Stanhope, Mitsui Fudosan and the Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCO) purchased the 14-acre property in 2012 at a cost of more than $300 million.
