St James Group Ltd have had the number of residences at White City living increased from 1,845 to 2,030 at the Hammersmith and Fulham planning meeting in April.
The site was originally a Marks and Spencer warehouse, and approval was given back in 2016 for phased development over ten years. Patel Taylor was the architect, and completed homes from the early phases are now on sale.
St James describes the development on its website,
“The Water Gardens is set in eight acres of parks and gardens, surrounded by world-class retail, entertainment, education, culture and commerce. Adjacent to two Zone 2 Tube stations and less than 15 minutes from the West End. At the heart of this new neighbourhood is a unique opportunity to live by the water’s edge, surrounded by nature overlooking the Central Gardens or within the Cassini tower at White City Living. Ready to move in this year, Waterside residences offer a tranquil perspective of the Water Gardens, with views that embrace the central stream that winds over 150 metres through elegant landscaping.
“Parkside residences enjoy elevated views over the Central Gardens, perfectly placed to enjoy life surrounded by nature. Live elevated in the 35 storey Cassini tower with views across the city.”
The increased accommodation has been greeted favourably in H&F as it contributes to the borough planning targets and includes an additional 65 affordable homes.
The approval is subject to a final agreement by the Mayor of London.
