Office politics

Ah, the selfless world of property developers. Revised plans for Television Centre, approved this week, increase office space across the site by 50%.

The old restaurant block will now be offices, not residential. The old Stage 4 and 5 buildings, once home to News and Post-production, are to be demolished and lose their brick facades, for upgraded offices. The original plan was to re-furbish the technical spaces and quirky levels of 4 and 5, in the hope of attractive trendy, start-up new media operations.

BBC Worldwide are set to move into Stage 6 in the New Year (unless timetable troubles are being concealed). I presume they're ok about the level of demolition and construction noise they'll now encounter right next to their new dream home.
