Earls Court Masterplan

Due to the planned development of Earls Court , PVL Properties Ltd has formulated a positive long-term view in area with its on-going management and investment in both Grenbeck Court & Bell House, which are both located a few hundred yards from the Earls Court tube station.

On 3rd July 2013 the Mayor of London gave his consent to the redevelopment of Earls Court and the surrounding area, paving the way for a £8 billion investment.

One of the most valuable masterplans in London  

Capco’s Masterplan for Earls Court has laid the groundwork for one of the most important and exciting regeneration projects in the capital. Its location adjacent to some of the city’s most desirable residential districts – Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham - plus excellent existing transport links offer a rare chance to redefine prime central London.

Detailed design proposals for the first phase of the Earls Court Masterplan have been submitted to the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (LBHF) and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBKC).

This first phase will feature an abundance of green space, a new High Street connecting North End Road in the west to Warwick Road in the east, over 1,300 new homes and 1,800 sq ft of new community space and a new nursery.

A new 'Lost River Park' (below), designed by RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medallist Andy Sturgeon, will stretch five acres across the full 77 acre Earls Court development site, following the line of one of London's famous lost rivers, Counters Creek.
