BBC Television Centre

Designed in the shape of a question mark, the former BBC headquarters will soon be transformed into 950 new homes with mixed use space allocations for cafes, restaurants and offices.

BBC Television Centre is an iconic landmark in West London prime for a transformation that will breathe new life into this community. Known locally as Television Centre, the development benefits from a strong legacy and cultural heritage unseen in other competitive developments, with the potential going forward to create a new legacy of its own.


Greater London has a current shortage of housing, a problem which is compounded by a large population growth rate. The demand for London housing, particularly in areas with excellent transportation connections, underpins values and the sales rates required to support new large scale housing development such as Television Centre. AIMCo, in a joint venture with Mitsui Fudosan and Stanhope, purchased Television Centre in 2012 from the British Broadcasting Corporation with development initiated in 2015.
