The consented Earls Court Masterplan which is identified as a Greater London Authority (“GLA”) Opportunity Area provides for 7,500 new homes, is anticipated to create 10,000 jobs and deliver over £450 million of community benefits. The site, which is located within two London Boroughs, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (“RBKC”) and the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (“LBHF”), is supported by excellent transport infrastructure and has the potential to deliver substantially more housing.
Earls Court has an ideal combination of fundamental components:
- Scale & Capacity - it is a large site with the ability to accommodate 7,500 new homes, extensive new office and retail space, and 7.5 acres of green public space
- Location & Connectivity – it enjoys an enviable Zone 1 location, where the renowned Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham meet, and at the heart of an exceptional existing public transport network, with three stations on its doorstep
- Partnerships in place - Earls Court Partnership Limited, an innovative venture established by Capco and Transport for London (TfL) will bring forward the first phases of the Masterplan
Inspired by London’s traditional network of streets and squares, the Masterplan will feature four new urban villages, linked by a modern, 21st century high street with retail and dining, cultural spaces and 7.5 acres of open green space.
