Elusive producer Jai Paul has bought a new home for his project The Paul Institute.

The project, which he runs with his brother A.K. Paul and Muz Azar, is to be housed at White City Place, owned by Mitsui Fudosan, Stanhope and AIMco. According to Property Week, the trio have purchased 3,000 square feet of space in the Rotunda building, which used to be a discotheque for the BBC staff. In the report is Jai Paul’s first photograph in three years.

“The Paul Institute is an immensely creative enterprise and will perfectly complement the mix of companies already moving in to White City Place,” said chief executive of Stanhope, David Camp. “We’re proud to support emerging British music talent by hosting the Paul Institute in White City and we look forward to watching this exciting initiative grow.”

Azar has said on the property purchase, “West London is the place where it all started for us and we can’t think of a more suitable place than the Rotunda to call our new home.”

The Paul Institute aims to spotlight and nurture British music talent, and it was launched last year with A. K. Paul’s debut solo single Landcruisin’. White City Place also houses BBC Digital, The Royal College of Art, YOOX Net-A-Porter, ITV and more.
