Consultation on Future of West12 Centre

West12 Centre in 2006
West12 Centre, the old-school shopping mall on the south side of Shepherd's Bush Green, is pondering its future, and wants your input.

Entering the West12 Centre can sometimes feel like stepping back into a 1970s time warp, so it is not surprising that the owners are considering their next move.

Retailers all across the country are facing increasing online competition, and even successful modern brands like Westfield are becoming more focused on experiences rather than just shopping.

Hammersmith Society Awards 2018

Queen's Wharf building - award winner
The Hammersmith Society, guardians of good architecture in our neighbourhood, recently announced the 2018 winners of its annual awards.

There were two Main Awards given in 2018, for the Queen’s Wharf (see photo left) and Riverside Walk, Hammersmith, W6.

And, of course, there were wooden spoons for the new buildings which make our neighbourhood worse, not better.
