Wednesday 4th October was the UCL Construction & Property Society's first outing of the year to the exciting new White City Living redevelopment in West London. St James Property Developers, part of the Berkley Group, offered us the opportunity for a sneak peak into their latest project.
The site which is bordered by three London Underground lines and sits only meters away from the former BBC Television Centre and the popular Westfield Shepherd's Bush shopping centre, will be transformed into the five stage, high-end residential development pictured below. The project will create 1,477 new luxury homes complete with gym, business pods, swimming pool and two 12-seater cinemas, as well as landscaped gardens, and a few small commercial units between the listed railway arches.
The tour began in the marketing suite, with St James sharing their expertise, knowledge and marketing secrets and demonstrating their incredible interactive model of the development, before we headed into the show home to experience the high end interior finish expected in these homes.
We then got suited and booted, and the St James Build Team took us out on the vast site to take a look at the progress. With approximately 90 operatives on site, the piles and concrete slabs outlined the beginnings of something incredible.
Take a look at some of the pictures below.
As expected, the site visit ended in the pub.
Thanks to everyone that came along, and be sure to check out our next site visit with Argent to the Gasholders in Kings Cross.
Most importantly, thanks again to Orlagh McCauley and the brilliant St James team for a great afternoon.
