The first three buildings in the ambitious redevelopment of the Old Vinyl Factory that is set to transform Hayes have been completed. The site of almost 6.87ha, first used from 1907 as the headquarters of His Master's Voice (HMV) and EMI, is undergoing a £250 million regeneration that will combine new business, leisure and living while respecting its significant musical and architectural heritage. Scheduled for completion in 2022, the scheme comprises 14 new or refurbished buildings. Regeneration specialists U+I expect to deliver 642 homes and over 70,000sq m commercial space featuring a three-screen cinema, shops, restaurants and a University Technical College (Global Academy) set in 16,700sq m of public space.
