The demolition of the old BBC car park on Wood Lane started today, reports developer Stanhope.

Stanhope with Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo are preparing the site for 142 new affordable homes for Peabody in two new buildings called Macfarlane Place at Television Centre.

The demolition will take at least 35 weeks and construction of Macfarlane Place will begin in 2022 with the completion expected in 2024.

The two buildings designed by Maccreanor Lavington Architects form part of the wider Television Centre development which will eventually have c 950 homes in total.

Stanhope is the development manager for Television Centre and Cantillon is the demolition contractor for the multi-storey car park.

The developers are working closely with Transport for London, who own the adjacent arches below the elevated Hammersmith & City line.

Jonathan Trout, Property & Commercial Director at Stanhope commented: “Demolition of the old BBC car park, to expedite the construction of 142 affordable homes, and the ongoing construction of a new office building at 1 Wood Crescent, Television Centre, shows the healthy state of the property market in White City. We are looking forward to delivering much needed affordable homes for residents in Hammersmith & Fulham alongside Peabody who share our confidence and long-term commitment for the area.”
