About BBC White City

BBC White City, also known as the BBC Media Village, is a collection of six buildings occupying a 17-acre site at Wood Lane, White City in West London . All formerly properties of the BBC, several have now closed, with only Broadcast Centre and the Lighthouse currently occupied by BBC staff. The site is a short distance down Wood Lane from the former BBC Television Centre.The BBC have sold the majority of buildings on the site and it has been announced that Media Village will be renamed White City Place by new owners Stanhope and Mitsui Fudosan.White City OneThe first building on the site, White City One, was designed by architects Scott Brownrigg & Turner and was opened in 1990. Built on the site of the 1908 Franco-British exhibition, White City One was constructed on the location of the former White City Stadium (The Great Stadium) used for the 1908 Summer Olympics. The stadium was demolished in 1985 and parts of the Olympic swimming pool were also discovered when the foundations of the new building were laid.White City One was originally intended to be a new home for BBC Radio, replacing Broadcasting House. This plan was scrapped and the building instead became office space with fifty edit suites, various Television production teams, the Digital Switchover team, BBC Academy, the Children in Need charity and parts of Operations and HR, as well as a large restaurant.
