Hammersmith Council has shortlisted four developers for its £110m town-centre redevelopment.
The site includes the town hall, the Nigel Playfair Avenue car park, and buildings on King Street.
The town hall, currently occupied by the Council, will be demolished and a piazza will be put in its place.
The plans for what is being called ‘Hammersmith Campus’ will include new offices for the Council as well as retail and potentially residential space.
Public exhibition<br>The developers have been asked to submit detailed proposals by early November, and then residents and interested parties will be invited to a public exhibition to consult on the scheme.
Councillor Mark Loveday, Hammersmith and Fulham cabinet member for strategy, said: ‘This is another step in a lengthy process. This is a vital project for Hammersmith, but it must be of the highest quality. Too many of these schemes in the past look tired almost before they are completed. I want to make sure this is a scheme the area can be proud of.’
Cushman & Wakefield is advising the council.
