The organisations behind the plans for the White City area include Imperial College London, Westfield London, Berkeley St James and Stanhope, who are together implementing a shared vision including up to 5,000 high quality homes, over 2m sq ft of offices, new public spaces, an enhanced world-class shopping offer and a hub for academia, innovation and start-ups.

White City Place is set on 17 acres of land adjacent to the Imperial College campus, White City tube station (Central line) and Wood Lane tube station (Hammersmith & City line). It is comprised of 6 existing buildings of 950,000 sq ft and a 4-acre development site.

Three buildings being vacated by the BBC - White City One, Media Centre and Garden House - will be fully refurbished and brought back to the market from late 2016. In total there will be 566,290 sq ft of new office accommodation.

Stanhope's Broadcast Centre at White City Place is one of the first buildings to achieve Wired Certification.

WiredScore recently launched the Connectivity Ratings Scheme, an initiative developed in partnership with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson MP, to boost connectivity across London using the trusted Wired Certification programme. In conjunction with this launch, ten notable London buildings have achieved Wired Certification, the international standard developed by WiredScore that distinguishes best-in-class Internet connectivity in office buildings.

In order to achieve Wired Certification, buildings must meet many standards of telecom and property industries. These standards include the number and quality of internet service providers, the bandwidth capabilities, and the reliability of connections based on the building’s infrastructure.

Stanhope director, Henry Williams said: “Stanhope is committed to providing world-class office space across London. We are proud that Broadcast Centre at White City Place is among the first buildings in London to be awarded the Platinum Wired Certified seal, demonstrating our commitment to providing the first class IT connectivity and tech infrastructure that businesses need.”
