UK Fashion Hub in Olympic running
A proposal from the UK fashion industry is one of three final bids being considered this week for the redevelopment of the London Olympics Media Centre in east London.
The UK Fashion Hub will submit its final bid for consideration, along with the other final two bidders, to the Olympic Park Legacy Committee on April 25.
Other final bids in the process are from i-City, part of data centre group Infinity, and Oxylane Research, a network of companies that focuses on sports and sports-based research in conjunction with Loughborough University.
The UK Fashion Hub’s proposal is for the 1 million sq ft site to house facilities for fashion skills training under four key areas: Learn, Do, Show and Sell.
These zones would cover education, manufacturing and retail facilities.
The proposal is supported by Dutch company Brandboxx, Fashion Capita and the Museum of London.
A decision on the winner of the bid is expected in June.
