We are looking to deliver much more than just a stadium. We want to create a new destination that we propose to call ‘New Queens Park’. It will serve as a catalyst for regeneration, creating thousands of new jobs and homes for local people.It will be a major transport hub that will connect Old Oak to the rest of London and other major cities across the UK. Our new 40,000-seat stadium will become a focal point hosting not just football, but other entertainment and community activities for residents and visitors to enjoy.This will give us a top quality stadium that will be able to cater for QPR’s needs as the club progresses and grows over the years ahead. We are very excited about being the driving force behind creating one of the best new urban places in the world, and making this our new home.
There are many local benefits that will arise out of the regeneration of the Old Oak area, including new homes, new jobs and a much improved local environment. These benefits will be shared widely by the surrounding communities in Hammersmith, Ealing and Brent, including large numbers of our supporters.This is very much the start of the process. We want to share our ideas and plans and in turn hear from the local community. The aim is that local residents, our fans and others with an interest in this part of London will come along and help us shape our proposals. The forthcoming public exhibitions provide the first opportunity for this, and as our plans evolve we’ll hold more events.
We envisage a new vibrant, mixed-use and high-quality development that will regenerate the area and turn this neglected but very well-connected area into a new world-class city quarter.We have assembled a top-class professional team to design thousands of new homes and new commercial space, including retail, studios and offices, restaurants, cinemas, a hotel and other leisure accommodation.
