Former BBC building to be homes and a hotel

THE former BBC Television Centre is to be transformed into more than 1000 homes and a hotel.

The listed building, home to the corporation since 1960, will have one storey added to its height and two at basement level but the facade of the premises will be retained and restored.

Approval has now been granted for the plans by developer Stanhope for up to 1025 homes, a hotel, health and leisure club and cafes and offices.

Hammersmith and Fulham Council's planning applications committee approved the. Mark Loveday, Hammersmith and Fulham Council's cabinet member for strategy and communication, said: "By approving these plans we have immortalised the key elements of this iconic building."
