White City

Located between the city centre and Heathrow Airport, just outside the congestion charge zone, the site forms the most Western of all development locations, the last and currently the missing link in a chain of developments that encircle central London. At present, the area is a vacant strip of land: a 43 acre breach in the urban fabric. It borders the divide between some of the wealthiest areas in London and some of London's most notorious and deprived housing estates. Hinging between the two extremes, the site has the potential to mediate the divide.
