Development continues on £130m BFI Film Centre Project
The new £130 million film, TV and moving image centre building in South Bank, London is now one step closer after the British Film Institute (BFI) has managed to secure up to £87m towards the projects total cost, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The International Centre for Film, TV and the Moving Image will form the “final piece” of London’s South Bank Cultural Quarter and is expected to be open in 2022. It will be built on the Hungerford car park site and will include a gallery, three cinema screens and an education centre.
The BFI is working alongside key landowners, the South Bank Centre, Braeburn Estates, Jubilee Gardens Trust and Lambeth Council to ensure the development will be “sensitively designed to complement an expanded Jubilee Gardens”.
As part of the project, Braeburn Estates will create 6,500 sq m of new green parkland on Jubilee Gardens.
