Capco’s strategy is to drive long-term value creation through planning, land assembly, land enablement and selective development activities on its investments at Earls Court.
Capco first acquired the exhibition centres in 2007, with planning consent secured for the Earls Court Masterplan in 2013. Major progress has been achieved on site. After nearly three years of intensive work, the former exhibition centres have been demolished. The final phase of demolition of the former Earls Court Exhibition Centres successfully completed on schedule in January 2018. The ECPL land is now available for development.
The GLA’s draft London Plan references the Earls Court Masterplan as ‘ready to grow’ demonstrating the site’s potential to deliver more housing and optimise this important London opportunity. Earls Court has the ability to evolve with the needs of London and has the flexibility to be brought forward through the introduction of third-party capital and selective development.
