Farrells to revamp north London train depot

  • Comment

Terry Farrell and Partners has been commissioned to create a vision for the redevelopment of Old Oak Common train depot in north London

Currently in the bottom fifth of the most deprived areas in Britain, the Old Oak Common site is poised to undergo massive regeneration following the construction of a new interchange station between Crossrail and HS2.

It is estimated that the new high speed rail link to Europe and the north will create 10,000 new homes and 20,000 new jobs in west London.

Hammersmith & Fulham Council has appointed the practice to create a vision for the area’s regeneration.

Terry Farrell said: ‘This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to work on a project that will not only reshape west London, but have a huge impact on the country as a whole.

‘High Speed Rail is not just a transportation strategy; it’s a nationwide economic catalyst that requires creative placemaking.

‘At Farrells we have previously worked on proposals for Euston and Birmingham stations in relation to HS2 and are helping reshape Ashford and Folkestone thanks to the economic stimulus provided by the arrival of HS1.

‘Old Oak Common presents an exceptional opportunity and we look forward to developing a clear vision to maximise the benefits of HS2.’

Council leader Stephen Greenhalgh added: ‘Old Oak Common has the potential to be as significant for west London as the redevelopment of Stratford has been for the east of the city.

‘H&F Council is determined to demonstrate what the regeneration of the area can achieve and to present a vision for the future of Old Oak.’
