Housebuilder’s St James subsidiary behind development

Centre House

The tallest tower will be 32 storeys

Pilbrow and Partners has been given the go ahead for a 527-home development in White City.

Designed for Berkeley subsidiary St James, the west London scheme will include a pair of 22-storey and 32-storey towers built directly behind White City tube station and follows nearly two years of consultation with Hammersmith and Fulham council.

The developer said it will act as a gateway to Imperial College London’s White City campus, and will provide the college with 10,000sq ft of commercial space and a 35% provision of affordable housing for college staff and other key workers.

The scheme is the next phase of the ongoing White City Living development, a 2,300-home regeneration project.

The wider masterplan for White City Living includes a park linked to nearby Wood Lane by a series of bridges.

St James said the landscaping for the park has been inspired by the Japan-British Exhibition held in White City in 1910.
