A WAVE of investment is hitting Hammersmith and White City with 1,500 new homes, new shops and public spaces after two major developments were given the green light.
Helical Bar and Aviva plan to build 1,150 homes on the former Dairy Crest site in Wood Lane with a public square to revitalise the area in seven phases over 11 years.
And St George can now begin demolishing the dated Kings Mall Car Park in Glenthorne Road, Hammersmith, to build 418 new flats, after both projects were given approval at a planning committee meeting on Tuesday.
While Labour are concerned at the lack of affordable housing, the Conservative-led council has welcomed the latest wave of investment for the borough.
Council leader Nick Botterill said: “These schemes continue the wave of investment that is currently pouring into Hammersmith. The town centre is riding high on this wave and is being well and truly revitalised."
