London mayor Sadiq Khan has officially unveiled the £6 million redevelopment of 3 Mills Studios.
The project includes upgrades to several of the site’s historic buildings, as well as the creation of more than 10,000 sq ft of creative workspace.
First announced in 2022, the redevelopment received funding from the UK government’s Getting Building Fund via a £3 million grant allocated by the Mayor of London, and a further £1.9 million from the London Legacy Development Corporation’s Community Infrastructure Fund.
Recent projects shot at the studios include The Great, Masterchef and Never Let Me Go.
Paul de Carvalho, general manager and head of studios at 3 Mills Studios, said: “The 3 Mills Studios campus has always been a charming place for film, television and theatre creatives to work. These major works have allowed us to increase the utilisation of our historic spaces and upgrade London’s oldest continuously running industrial site to ensure it continues to provide the facilities required by the international screen production industry in the 21st century.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan added: “London is a global hub for film and television and 3 Mills has been pivotal in the success of the industry. The restoration of these historic buildings not only offers much needed space for more industry production to take place in the capital, but also supports over a thousand jobs in the heart of east London.
“It will enable the studios to play a major role as the capital’s film and TV industries support our economy and we build a better London for everyone.”
