This £1bn project will transform the iconic 132 year-old landmark Olympia London into a world-leading cultural hub with hotels, restaurants, performance venues, state-of-the-art office space and 2.5 acres of new public space.
The project will upgrade all existing spaces in the complex to turn Olympia London into one of the world’s top exhibition and event spaces. New features of the project will include 670,000 sq ft of creative office space including co-working space, 30+ food and drink outlets, 1,500-seat theatre, 1,000-seat performing arts venue, two hotels, a four-screen cinema, a 200,000 sq ft logistics centre, 650 cycle spaces and 181 car spaces.
The project is expected to create more than 3,000 new construction jobs over the next five years in addition to approximately 5,400 new jobs for the borough when it is completed. It is also expected to bring in an extra £9m per year in consumer spending to Hammersmith & Fulham.
