245 Hammersmith Road is a significant development in Hammersmith’s CBD involving a new streetscape with greater permeability to Hammersmith Road, a large ground floor plaza and gateway into the development and a new elevated garden establishing a green oasis to an existing podium structure. The core principles of the design include reactivation, repopulation and revegetation through the creation of a high quality and vibrant public space offering for the borough.
Over the past 12 months, 245 Hammersmith Road has been under construction. Phase one of the works includes completion of a section of the podium landscape adjacent to Novotel hotel. ExA have been onsite monitoring and inspecting the overall construction including installation of large corten planters and ceramic tile paving. Phase one is now open and accessible to the public via the Novotel reception. Phase two of the works to the podium is still under construction while the building works continue at ground level.
