It is anticipated that shortlisted applicants will provide proposals that will provide for a mixed use residential and studio development on the site to include the BBC’s studio requirements such that the value generated meets or is greater than the cost of the providing the new or refurbished studio building to a fully serviced shell and core basis. The BBC will fit out the interior of the building including the studios and ancillary office areas including the provision of studio facilities on a new site.
Built in 1909, the building was acquired by the BBC in the early 1930s to meet public demand for broadcasting. It is now home to the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Singers, the Radio 1 Live Lounge and “In Session” recordings. The BBC’s preference is to continue to use the site and is looking for the right organisation to help realise its ambitions.
Innovative proposals will be welcomed which will ensure that the final solution is based on cost effective construction costs, reduced operating costs, achieving “greener” energy requirements and a rating of BREEAM Very Good with an aspiration for BREEAM Excellent. The BBC will also consider a range of ownership and leasehold structures to facilitate and deliver the BBC’s ambitions.
