An underused site in Hammersmith is being eyed up for new homes and office space.
Fit Out UK, an interior contractor which counts Sainsbury’s and Tesco among its clients, is looking to transform the thin stretch of land off of Goldhawk Road in Shepherd’s Bush into a combination of flats and mews-style houses, while also greening the area with new planting and walkways.
The current structures on the site, which include a depot and two buildings listed locally by Hammersmith and Fulham council, are to be demolished under the plans.
Of the 36 homes, 24 will be apartments in a four to-six storey building, with the remaining 12 to be the mews-style houses.
The majority will be two-bedroom, although nine one-bedroom, six three-bedroom and one four-bedroom units are also included in the plans.
Just over 36 per cent of the total rooms are listed as ‘affordable’, spread across 12 of the proposed homes.
According to the application, Fit Out UK, which has owned the site since 2005, decided to relocate following a recent expansion. It will, however, retain a presence within the new office space, “ensuring their commitment to the development and its ongoing maintenance and security”.
Fit Out UK was approached for comment, but had not responded at the time of publication.
