The £6bn redevelopment of London’s Earls Court has undergone a redesign, with open spaces now set to replace the structures originally planned.
In a redesign submitted by the Earls Court Development Company, open space inclusion has increased by 20%, while development has reduced by 10%, compared to the proposals put forward earlier this year.
Around 60% of the land will not be built on, plans include a network of Exhibition gardens, including a community green and The Table, a new urban park set to feature on the West London brownfield site.
With what the Earls Court Development Company calls “a new ecological corridor” set to connect the site and West Brompton.
Much of the 40-acre site has already been prepared for redevelopment, with the aim that construction work will begin in 2026.
Phase one of the development includes over 1,000 of the planned 4,000 new homes, the first cultural and commercial buildings, and the park and east-west connections.
The development is a joint venture between Delancey, Dutch pension fund manager APG and Transport for London.
