Growing back stronger

A more resilient, more successful Earls Court. 

This is an exciting moment for a site with a rich and illustrious history.

It has been vacant since 2015 when the Earls Court Exhibition Centres were demolished.

Now, we want to bring the site back to life by delivering what the community needs. A place to live comfortably, to work flexibly, to have fun, to see friends, and to play.

A place that stands the test of time, and brings new opportunity to Earls Court.

A place fit for a new era for London – adapting to life as we emerge from the pandemic.

We want to get this right, which means working with the community, councils, and Londoners to deliver something we can be proud of.

This project can set the standard for building back better. To deliver it, we will need the people who know the area best to tell us exactly what we need to do to create something that meets their needs, and makes Earls Court proud.


Our plans

In June 2020, we appointed Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West as the principal architects for the Earls Court development. Both firms have extensive experience in delivering sustainable and mindful developments with local values and heritage at their heart.

Together, we are taking a new approach towards how we think about our plan for the future of the site, and look forward to getting the community’s input on many different aspects of the designs as they develop.

You can view and comment on our developing plans on our dedicated consultation website, which will be regularly updated.

The site

The Earls Court site is the home of the former Earls Court Exhibition Centres and Lillie Bridge Depot. It is the largest development opportunity in Zone 1.

It straddles two London boroughs; the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBKC) and the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (LBHF).

The Mayor of London has identified the site as an Opportunity Area – an area which will be important to deliver the homes and jobs London needs for the future.

The Earls Court Development Company will be delivering and developing the site which previously housed the Earls Court Exhibition Centres and the Lillie Bridge Depot. The Lillie Bridge Depot is currently owned by TfL, but the ambition is to also bring it into the plan in due course.

344-350 Old Brompton Road

ECDC is bringing forward proposals for the redevelopment of 344-350 Old Brompton Road. We want this development to act as a marker and gateway of the emerging plan for the main Earls Court site and to provide a sense of arrival from West Brompton Station. To view these plans please click here.
