Following commencement of works in September 2020, the structural works to Gateway Central and Gateway West buildings at White City Place are now complete, with remaining works now underway in readiness for a scheduled final completion by the end of 2022. Yesterday saw the official celebration of this milestone in the form of a topping out ceremony.
Gateway Central is a new eleven storey building comprising over 280,000 square feet of total floor space, including two outdoor terraces at Levels 4 and 8. Five upper floors of the building are pre-let to L’Oréal UK and Ireland for their new UK Headquarters. The building takes 52% less energy to cool than a comparable building due to its solar-control glass with shading from external fins and shelves.
Gateway West is a new four storey building comprising 25,000 square feet. A collaborative approach to sustainability has lowered embodied carbon, achieved 2025-2030 energy performance targets and doubled the biodiversity on the site.
