Developers show off final designs before submitting planning application
The partnership behind the King Street Regeneration (KSR) proposals is showing its final designs for the scheme at Hammersmith Town Hall on Friday and Saturday, July 5 and 6 before submitting a planning application to the council.
Led by a joint venture between Grainger plc and Helical Bar plc, working directly with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, the plans aim to "enhance annd improve the area around the existing Hammersmith Town Hall.
The partnership, called King Street Developments, say they will place a new cinema at the heart of the development, and deliver new offices for council staff, new homes, a public square, as well as other benefits for local communities including cafés and restaurants.
Previous plans were strongly opposed by local residents who formed a campaign group called Save Our Skyline and were were refused by Mayor Boris Johnson for breaching planning rules in December 2011.
In July 2012 Council Leader Nicholas Botterill admitted that the plans had "got it wrong" and that the scheme would be revised.
Now, say King Street Developments: " We are excited to announce that following extensive consultation with the local community and key stakeholders over the past year, we will be submitting a planning application for our final proposals to Hammersmith and Fulham Council in July.
" Ahead of this submission, we will be presenting our final designs for the area at a third public exhibition to be held at Hammersmith Town Hall."
The exhibition will be held underneath the Town Hall Extension, in front of Hammersmith Town Hall on Friday July 5 between 3pm and 7pm, and again on Saturday July 6 between 10am -2pm.
