Green light for landmark Earls Court buildings

Developer Capital & Counties Properties has received the green light for detailed design of two gateway buildings for the redevelopment of the Earls Court exhibition complex in west London.

Planners at Kensington and Chelsea Council gave the thumbs up to the 139,000 sq ft Exhibition Square plans include two buildings designed by architect KPF creating hotel and office space.

Mike Hood, Group Development Director, Earls Court, said: “Earls Court is the most important regeneration site in London and the last two years have seen significant investment and remarkable progress.

“Our detailed plans for Exhibition Square would provide an important gateway to the scheme and mean that the entirety of Earls Court Village, the first of four new urban villages at Earls Court, has received full detailed consent.”

Exhibition Square is the latest part of the consented Earls Court Masterplan to receive detailed consent.

The detailed designs were brought forward for consultation by Earls Court Partnership, the joint venture between Capco and Transport for London, in summer 2016

It will offer 30,000sq mt of open public realm at the start of a new High Street that will connect North End Road in the west to Warwick Road in the east.

A new Underground station entrance will also be provided, connecting the development directly with Earl’s Court Underground Station.
