A shortlist of three bidders aiming to become the long-term tenant of London 2012's Press and Broadcast Centres has been revealed by the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC).

UK Fashion Hub, the Oxylane Group and iCITY have been announced as in the running to take over the facilities following the Games and will now enter detailed talks with the OPLC.

A dedicated centre to unite the fashion and textile manufacturing industries is being planned by UK Fashion Hub, which will include offices, an incubator and a fashion college.

The Oxylane Group has proposed a sports-orientated, mixed-use project in partnership with Loughborough University, including leisure and events space; research areas; and offices.

An Innovation City is at the centre of the iCITY vision, which will incorporate research labs; a cloud computing centre; and a centre showcasing UK technology.

OPLC chief executive Andrew Altman said: "We have three dynamic bids focused on the creation of thousands of jobs and training opportunities, along with links to Tech City.

"We will now go through their proposals in fine detail to make sure that they can deliver a successful ongoing legacy that will stimulate future commercial interest."

It is hoped a tenant will be appointed this summer, with a view to completing the fit-out and opening the new facilities in 2013.
