Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation have appointed We Made That, the urban architectures, as the masterplanners for Park Royal Centre, the UK’s largest industrial estate.

We Made That will guide the delivery of 3,000 sqm of new town centre floorspace, the creation of 1,400 new jobs and 650 new homes at the estate, often dubbed ‘London’s Kitchen’.

We Made That are tasked with translating the vision into a deliverable plan. The emerging masterplan will be discussed at a public consultation event in July, with the final masterplan expected to be completed in early Autumn.

Liz Peace CBE, OPDC Chairman said: “OPDC is working hard to plan for the whole of Old Oak and Park Royal. The Centre of Park Royal is home to the incredibly important Central Middlesex Hospital and an Asda Superstore along with lots of local businesses that are all hugely important in supporting the communities, not only within the OPDC area, but also the wider communities across Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham. We have appointed a fantastic team to help us plan a bright future and we look forward to talking to local people, residents and businesses over the coming months to better understand their views.”

Oliver Goodhall, Partner at We Made That said: “Park Royal Centre masterplan programme is an incredibly exciting opportunity to bring to fruition some of the crucial early moves in a bold and ambitious project, whilst also shaping its long-term trajectory for a new designated neighbourhood Centre within a unique industrial context”.
