About us

A new direction, and a new chance of growth for Earls Court.

We are The Earls Court Development Company (ECDC), and we are responsible for driving forward the development of the Earls Court site.

The Earls Court site has had a rich and illustrious history. It is London’s largest, most exciting Zone 1 development opportunity.

With our new ownership, we want to provide new direction, and the chance of new growth for local neighbourhoods.

The first decision we took was to hand back the West Kensington and Gibbs Green housing estates - originally part of the previous owners’ masterplan - to Hammersmith and Fulham Council. This provided the residents of those estates with the certainty and security that so many of them had fought to achieve for so long.

And now we’re developing a brand-new plan for the area.

A plan that doesn’t seek to create a new community, but nurture something already rooted in this place. A plan that will give the community the opportunity to shape how the site comes back into life. A project they will be a part of from start to finish.

Our team is based locally in Earls Court, and is driven by our core values of collaboration, consideration, and celebration of the local community.

Core Values

Collaboration

We will always provide an open-door approach to ideas, providing numerous, varied and relevant opportunities and options for all stakeholders and partners alike to comment and feedback on approach and plans.

Consideration

We believe a considerate, as well as considered approach, is vital to delivering a successful, exemplar and sustainable new Earls Court and are fully committed to supporting the local economy and to taking a considered approach to social impact and sustainability.

Celebration

We recognise that there is so much to celebrate about Earls Court and its character, custodians, culture and community already. We will not be one of those developers who wait until ‘the end’ to celebrate the development – instead, we will celebrate from start to finish.
