The sense of our all being in this together continues, with the property industry very much continuing to play its part in the fight against coronavirus.
Television Centre and White City Place developers Stanhope, Mitsui Fudosan and Aimco are showing their support for the fight against Covid-19 by rolling out a number of initiatives, including the launch of a new community channel for occupiers, tenants and residents, and ensuring labs can remain open for essential medical research and development.
The partners insist they are committed to helping and showing their appreciation during these unprecedented times. Ahead of the Easter weekend, more than 1,000 Easter eggs are being gifted to doctors, nurses and support staff at the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust hospitals, Hammersmith and Charing Cross.
The partners say they are working closely with the local authorities and hospital administration to ensure a smooth delivery. An additional batch of 200 eggs will be gifted to pupils with severe learning difficulties from Jack Tizard School in Shepherd’s Bush.
To help pay tribute to the NHS and emergency services, meanwhile, both the WestWorks building in White City Place and the iconic façade of Television Centre will be bathed in a bright blue light, from dusk until dawn for the foreseeable future.
“We’re hugely proud of all the efforts our partners and community are making to help each other and most importantly those on the frontline of the pandemic,” David Camp, chief executive at Stanhope, said.
“We appreciate this must be an unsettling time for all and the need for a sense of community to keep people connected and supported has become more important than ever.
