Green Light for Olympia London transformation
On behalf of Yoo Capital, Gerald Eve has secured a resolution to grant planning permission and listed building consent for the comprehensive redevelopment, refurbishment and regeneration of the Olympia site within the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (LBHF).
This followed 18 months of detailed engagement with LBHF, the Greater London Authority, Transport for London and Historic England, as well as local residents and businesses.
In summary, the proposals will maintain and enhance Olympia’s status as a world-class exhibition destination through improving and enhancing exhibition and conferencing facilities and delivering a range of supporting and complementary uses including over half a million sq ft of office accommodation; visitor accommodation; food and beverage facilities; and destination leisure and cultural uses (including cinema, theatre, live music and performance space). In addition, the proposals will deliver significant public realm improvements including a new elevated landscaped walkway, and increase permeability throughout the site.
