As a major commercial centre in the heart of west London, there’s a growing range of exciting mixed-use development opportunities in Hammersmith.
The forthcoming Hammersmith masterplan builds upon the area’s existing strengths as a major commercial, arts, cultural and retail centre alongside encouraging new high-quality development. It includes ambitious plans that would see the ailing A4 Hammersmith flyover demolished and replaced with a tunnel – reclaiming space above ground for new public realm and buildings and reconnecting the town centre to the river. The masterplan will also focus on creating a safe, accessible and welcoming environment transforming the public realm and transport network to create new public space. New developments will contribute to addressing the climate emergency and ensure a more green and liveable Hammersmith, able to thrive in a changing economic climate.

Hammersmith & Fulham is well on its way to becoming the best place in which to live, work and play in Europe. With exciting regeneration projects right across the borough from White City and Hammersmith town centre to Earls Court and Old Oak, we’re expecting more than 22,000 new homes and 38,000 jobs to be created over the next decade.
Through our pioneering Industrial Strategy with Imperial College London, we continue to use the power of local government to support growth, bring partners together, regenerate town centres, build affordable workspaces and teach essential skills.
White City is a now a leading innovation district able to compete with the best in the 21stCentury. More than 60 life science businesses have been created, grown or moved into H&F in just four years, alongside high growth anchor businesses and science and tech unicorns. We are delivering more than 1.5million square feet of high-tech workspace as part of major regeneration totalling over £10bn.
H&F is also a great location for businesses. It is close and well connected to Heathrow and boasts exceptional transport links with 16 Tube stations. The West End and the City are also within easy reach. The new HS2 line at Old Oak Common will connect the borough to the rest of the UK, speed up journey times to other major cities and bring a new Overground station to Old Oak Common Lane.

“Since our Industrial Strategy was launched, the science and tech sectors have grown to 17 per cent of H&F’s total workforce, significantly higher than the London average. We must also provide our young people with the qualifications they need for future careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, by supporting STEM start-ups and innovators and by creating a business environment where climate innovations can flourish.
By putting in place the right infrastructure, education and training and by building a culture of innovation, there’s no reason why the steam engine of this next Industrial Revolution – the Green Revolution – that repairs the carbon-based damage of the past, but still captures the same entrepreneurial vision, can’t be grown here, in H&F.”
