Terry Farrell & Partners appointed to draw up masterplan for Earls Court development

Capital & Counties Properties PLC, working with Transport for London (‘TfL’) and the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, has appointed Terry Farrell & Partners (‘Farrells’), the internationally renowned architects and urban designers, to work with them to draw up a masterplan for the Earls Court site. The appointment was made following an international masterplanner competition.

Capital & Counties Properties PLC, TfL and the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham will work with Farrells over the coming months to develop a detailed masterplan for the site which will include in-depth community and stakeholder consultation to ensure the views of local residents are reflected. During the masterplan development process, the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham will determine whether they wish to include the West Kensington and Gibbs Green housing estates in the development area.

Ian Hawksworth, Chief Executive at Capital & Counties Properties PLC, commented: “Our vision is to develop an inspiring urban environment at Earls Court. We selected Farrells as we believe that they will bring this vision to life. Not only are we delighted to be working with such a highly regarded and renowned architect and planner, but the selection of the masterplanner represents a significant step forward for the Earls Court development as a whole.”

A planning application will be submitted in approximately 12 months, and the redevelopment work will not commence on site before the Olympic Games in 2012 when Earls Court Exhibition Centre will host the volleyball tournament.
