Five chase Clapham Junction revamp

  • Comment

Hawkins\Brown, AHMM, BDP, Terry Farrell and Wilkinson Eyre have been shortlisted to look at resurrecting the multi-million pound redevelopment of Clapham Junction in south-west London

Site owner Metro Shopping Fund has selected the five practices to look at the plot next to Clapham Junction station with a view to appointing a team to carry out a feasibility study.

The move by the Land Securities and Delancey-owned joint venture comes 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.

The developers said: ‘The Metro Shopping Fund can confirm that it has spoken to a group of architects with a view to one of them being appointed to carry out a study to assess the feasibility of development at Clapham Junction station. This process is at a very early stage and should in no way be seen as an indication that the Fund will be undertaking development at the station either now or in the future.’

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.

The council said: ‘A private development scheme could help to solve some of the underlying problems and we would expect the plans to complement the town centre environment.’
