The initial plans of a White City redevelopment, which will include new west London offices
, have been revealed.
Helical Bar and Aviva Investors have given CoStar UK a preview of their proposals for the former Dairy Crest site. They include a large public open space, 1,250 homes, shops, a public garden and start-up space for small and medium-sized enterprises.
The new London offices
are targeted at media and creative companies that want to have a base on the 10.3-acre site. The two developers are set to publicly reveal the plans later in March, when consultations will be held to garner people's opinions.
Speaking to CoStar UK, director at Helical Bar Matthew Bonning-Snook said: "Our proposals present an exciting opportunity to transform this site and bring new homes, jobs and facilities to the area," adding that as many individuals as possible should visit the consultations to discuss their views.
White City has also been in the line of sight of Westfield, which has received planning permission for new London offices
there from Hammersmith and Fulham Council. It revealed last month that its £1 billion scheme had been given the green light, including up to 1,522 homes, an extension to Wood Lane shopping centre and new restaurants.
