The Old Vinyl Factory
Reinventing mixed-use to create
a thriving centre for Hayes
The record is on the turntable, and we’re putting the needle down, ready to press play in the regeneration of The Old Vinyl Factory in West London.
For decades a derelict industrial site, now transformed into an award- winning and beautiful place with over 600 homes, 1000’s of new jobs , public spaces , restoration of beautiful industrial heritage and (of course) plenty of impressive public art. A £250m project that is now widely held as an exemplar of mixed use regeneration.
This is delivering on the promise we made to local people when we first arrived on site in 2011.
Last year we secured planning consent to turn the former pressing plant at The Old Vinyl Factory into a multi-screen cinema and mixed-use entertainment venue. It will be a thriving hub with restaurants, gym, shops, and educational space.
In homage to the site’s EMI heritage, The Gramophone, featuring a cinema, live music, interactive exhibitions, will provide an exciting new entertainment hub for Hayes and West London. This will sit near the new Music Academy, climbing wall and, hopefully (with a bit of a push) a second Plus X facility in the old Power Station. Exciting stuff…
