Bringing People Together

There are two key things that will make West 5 an amazing place. 1) The people 2) Bringing them together. At the heart of this vibrant community will be a Central Park, designed to do both. West 5 will be a destination location for Londoners. It will have a variety of events and activities including seasonal events like Easter Egg Hunts, Movies at Twilight, Food Festivals and more. All the things that will help us celebrate life and the people who make it special.
