In pictures: Earls Court regeneration project
Earls Court is set to undergo a period of massive regeneration and we’ve collected some images of what the area could look like once the project is completed.
The prospective images were shown by the project’s leader, Anette Simpson, in her presentation at the West London Business property lunch last week. Simpson, who is the Director of Planning and Development at Capco, said the project would “promote London as the best capital city in the world” and said it was a “unique opportunity for a new piece of city.”
According to Simpson, the development will promote a “dining in the park feel,” something that is certainly represented in the striking imagery, with it also being clear that greenery and social mobility are key parts of the project.
The regeneration of the area, which includes the demolition of the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, will provide 7,500 new homes, 37 acres of open space and £50m investment in transport improvements.
There will also be around one million sq ft of commercial space available, including office, leisure and retail facilities, which will create around 12,000 new jobs.
Although the project has been met with some criticism, Simpson explained that London is growing at a unprecedented rate and large schemes, like Earls Court, are absolutely vital for the future.
