Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London SW5
Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London SW5
The front elevation of the Earls Court Exhibition Centre from the entrance of West Brompton Underground Station. This exhibition, conference and entertainment venue was originally opened in 1887 but was rebuilt in 1937 with this art deco style exterior. Agreement has been reached between Capital & Counties Properties plc and the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham with the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea to sell and demolish it to allow for the development of up to 8,000 residential flats, numerous retail outlets and possibly a new convention centre. Its demolition was (and continues to be) opposed by the Earls Court Action Group. This is comprised of local residents and interested parties who will be affected by the exhibition centre's destruction and the estimated 20 years redevelopment work. Despite the opposition the broad plans were approved in July 2013. However, it is not known when the demolition work will commence.
