Huge canalside scheme now includes new West London Science Museum
Cargiant and London & Regional Properties have revealed their 'evolving masterplan' for Old Oak Park, the 46 acre site in the north of Hammersmith and Fulham owned by the car dealership.
Development of the site, between the Grand Union Canal and Willesden Junction, is part of the vision for Old Oak Common which aims to transform a vast swathe of industrial land into a thriving new part of London, supported by the Mayor of London and the local boroughs.
The team say Old Oak Park will include up to 7,000 new homes, support up to 8,000 jobs and create opportunities local people to access them, a new London Overground Station called Hythe Road, a new pedestrian high street called Old Oak Walk and connections into the surrounding communities via 14 bridges and underpasses.
It will have schools, parks and a new canal-side environment, with a waterside public square called Grand Union Square and cultural quarter which looks set to be anchored by a huge new building established by the Science Museum.

The Science Museum in South Kensington has been looking for a new home for its vast unseen archive of 170,000 objects currently stored at Blythe House in Olympia, which is being privatised by the Government.
The team say that having had an excellent response to previous consultations with the public in 2014 and 2015, they want to hear residents' views on their progress developing a masterplan.
You can download the latest consultation material here or view the plans at the Holiday Inn London West, 4 Portal Way, North Acton on Thursday February 11 from 3.30pm - 7.30pm and Saturday February 13, from 10am - 4pm.
