AJ exclusive: AHMM scoops Clapham Junction overhaul job

  • Comment

AHMM has been appointed to work on the multi-million redevelopment of Clapham Junction in south-west London

The company has beaten Hawkins\Brown, BDP, Terry Farrell and Wilkinson Eyre to win the high-profile feasibility study job.

The AJ exclusively revealed the five practices shortlisted by site owner Metro Shopping Fund to look at resurrecting the large scale regeneration project back in May.

The appointment by the Land Securities and Delancey-owned joint venture comes more than three years after it was forced to withdraw a controversial £400 million twin towers scheme designed by ColladoCollins for the 3.36 hectare site.

The project, featuring two 42-storey skyscrapers, 556 residential units and 20,557m² of retail, commercial and community floor space, met local opposition and was abandoned after Wandsworth Council planners recommended refusal.

Opened in 1838, Clapham Junction is the busiest rail interchange in Europe, with 2,000 trains passing through daily. 

The Metro Shopping Fund development plot covers a large area of land to the south of the station redeveloped in the late 1970s with a mall, booking hall, car park and offices.
