Outer London offices
are to be created as a result of the redevelopment of RAF Uxbridge.
Mayor of the capital Boris Johnson revealed the plans, which will also include a hotel, GP surgery, school, theatre, 1,300 new homes, and community and recreation facilities.
The accommodation blocks, mess area, barracks and other buildings will be replaced or converted.
Under a scheme by the Ministry of Defence, its units are to be centralised at RAF Northolt.
Mr Johnson said: "Investment in regeneration is what will drive the capital out of the downturn and make it even more competitive to prosper in the long term."
He added 1,300 permanent jobs will be created as a result of the redevelopment, with 270 construction positions to open further down the line.
Another jobs boost for the capital was recently revealed by the mayor and prime minister David Cameron, with more than 250 employment positions set to be delivered when Greenwich Leisure and Balfour Beatty WorkPlace operate the key facilities and venues of the Olympic Park after the 2012 sporting event ends.
