Development Securities has been appointed on one of West London's most sought-after development sites in Hammersmith

The developer announced today that it had been chosen by Transport for London for the project on a 1.5-acre (0.6 ha) carpark site immediately adjacent to the Hammersmith & City line underground station.

Development Securities fought off competition from Helical Bar, London & Regional, Prudential and British Land. The bidding process was carried out by Jones Lang LaSalle.

The office-led scheme and an extension of the ticket-hall for the underground station is expected to be completed by the second half of 2009.
