Stanhope and Cadillac Fairview are delighted to welcome 800 ITV staff to the Broadcast Centre building as part of their move and consolidation to the creative campus at White City Place, W12, alongside the BBC and other creative businesses. The White City Innovation District is home to some of the world’s most dynamic businesses with a cluster of creative organisations, including the BBC, Publicis and ITV.
ITV has taken 125,000 sq ft of office space across 3 upper floors, and some of the ground floor, of the Broadcast Centre, campus previously occupied by the BBC. A further 1,200 ITV staff will move in next year so that by mid-2023 the whole ITV London team of more than 2,000 staff will all be in one location together for the first time. ITV staff arriving will find a thriving and lively ecosystem of other businesses, cafes and restaurants, amenities, activities and services second to none.
The additional 800 ITV staff moving in today will join those from ITV Daytime and Drama who are already based in the WestWorks building at White City Place and in the studios at Television Centre where flagship shows like GMB, Lorraine, Graham Norton and Jonathan Ross are filmed. ITV is relocating all their London staff from their existing offices in Gray’s Inn Road and Waterhouse Square to White City which has traditionally been mainly a BBC site. The BBC retains space in the Broadcast Centre and other buildings in White City Place, and Television Centre includes the HQs of BBC Worldwide and Publicis, along with 3 studios run BBC Studioworks and a club, restaurant, gym and hotel run by Soho House.
Ian Jones, Director of Workplace Services and Estates, ITV, said: “Over the next 12 months we will be moving all our London teams to ITV White City, joining ITV Daytime and Drama, who are already located in WestWorks, and our Studioworks team at Television Centre. It’ll be the first time we’ve all been together, creating a real hub for ITV in west London, and delivering new, smart ways of working for all our colleagues. We’re excited to be joining such a vibrant, creative community and bringing our distinctive ITV vibe to W12.”
Jenny Hammarlund, managing director, Head of Europe, Cadillac Fairview said: “The decision by ITV to move all their staff to west London is an endorsement of the vitality and success of White City Place in attracting high quality and innovative world class businesses. White City Place is truly establishing itself as a creative innovation hub, with the likes of BBC, ITV and other media companies, alongside a growing cluster of leading life science businesses, including Novartis and Autolus. Cadillac Fairview is committed to the long term success of White City and its Innovation District and we look forward to its continued growth, alongside our broader commitment to London and the life sciences market as demonstrated by our recent investments in Oxford North and 70 Gracechurch Street.”
Claire Dawe, Director, Asset Management, Stanhope said: “White City Place is already a fantastic creative campus with the BBC, ITV and other media businesses currently on site but the decision by ITV to relocate all their 2,000 staff in London to White City will increase the buzz and critical mass to make it a real centre of the media industry in London. Stanhope and Cadillac Fairview, the owner of White City Place, welcome the new ITV staff, and they will be in good company with a range of other leading creative businesses both at White City Place and Television Centre.”
