About us

The Earls Court project has been many years in the making. Previously home to the now demolished Earls Court Exhibition Centres, the site has had a rich and illustrious history, and is London’s largest, most exciting Zone 1 development opportunity.

In December 2019 Delancey, (on behalf of its client fund and the Dutch pension fund manager APG,) acquired a joint venture interest in the site with Transport for London (TfL) from the previous owners, Capco. As the new, long-term custodians of Earls Court, the first decision taken was to hand back the West Kensington and Gibbs Green housing estates, originally forming 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.

In order to ensure full immersion in the local community, Delancey is establishing a new business, ‘The Earls Court Development Company’ (‘ECDC,’) that will be based in Earls Court and charged with all aspects of delivery of the project. The Earls Court Development Company is wholly committed to working in close partnership with the joint owners of the project, which include TfL, and all the other local and wider stakeholders to carefully conceive, nurture and deliver a new masterplan vision for the area.

By working together, we can establish a vision that stitches Earls Court back into its local area and sets a new global standard for a sustainable, vibrant mixed use development. We hope to harness the energy, ideas and commitment of all, at a local and wider London level, to learn and benefit from lessons of the past, whilst staying inspired and wide-eyed at the once-in-a-generation opportunities for the future. Above all, we should all aim to establish a new, much-loved legacy for Earls Court.

We are starting from scratch - with a blank canvas and with one (very!) large blank piece of paper. With collaboration, consideration and celebration as our core values, and with the proven attitude, aptitude and world-renowned reputation for delivering complex projects of this scale, we look forward to stepping forward on this journey, and working with you all, to bring about a new masterplan, which everyone can benefit from and be proud of.
