The world’s largest cosmetics company L’Oréal is opening its new offices in White City.
The international firm – which is currently based in Hammersmith Broadway – will move its 1,000 employees to a brand-new building at White City Place in Wood Lane.
“L’Oréal’s decision to remain in the borough is fantastic news for our local thriving economy,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for the Economy and the Arts.
“We want our local residents and businesses to all benefit from our booming borough and the prosperity it brings to H&F.”
The transformation of White City is a result of H&F Council’s Industrial Strategy (pdf 2.6MB) which aims to make the borough the best place to live, work and play in Europe.
L’Oréal will occupy six floors of the new eleven-storey building, which will be part of the flourishing creative business hub forming in White City Place which already includes Yoox Net-A-Porter and the BBC.
The new building will also house the L’Oréal Academy which will train more than 10,000 hairdressers a year.
L’Oréal are due to move into the new London HQ in autumn 2023.
L’Oréal UK and Ireland country manager Vismay Sharma said: “The new building is at the heart of an energetic and creative campus located next to Imperial College and Westfield London, a location which is reflective of our ambition to become the leading BeautyTech company.
“Relocating our corporate headquarters is a unique opportunity to provide our employees with a workplace for tomorrow and a headquarters that best represents our creative and innovative company alongside our mission of beauty for all."
