The Earls Court Development Company (ECDC) has unveiled a draft masterplan to deliver on their vision ‘to bring the wonder back to Earls Court’. The ambitious redevelopment will see this long neglected, largely derelict 40-acre site in Zone 1 London reinstated as a destination for entertainment, innovation and excitement. The total scheme would deliver around 680,000 sq m (7.35m sq feet) of development.

The draft masterplan is co-authored by a 50/50 collaboration of Studio Egret West and Hawkins Brown with landscape input from SLA and phase one plot design input from ACME, Haworth Tompkins, Macreanor Lavington, Sheppard Robson, DRMM and Serie Architects.

We propose a new park at the heart of the site, seamlessly connected to a fully public sequence of new squares, community gardens and green streets. There will be a variety of new performance and community venues and cultural programmes that attract and nurture talent; 4,500 new homes to cater for all needs, targeting 35% affordable across all tenures and 15,000 new jobs in a new economic centre for West London.

The plans follow two years of extensive community engagement to understand what is truly wanted and needed on this long-neglected site. Subject to planning, the aim is for construction to begin on-site in 2025.
