Farrell to rediscover 'lost town centre' after winning Paddington masterplan

A ‘green bridge’ over London’s infamous Westway flyover is among the options being mooted by Farrells after the practice landed a £350 million masterplan north of the Paddington Basin.

Terry Farrell’s firm, which has spent nearly 30 years working in and around Paddington, was selected by Westminster City Council and Knight Frank LLP ahead of bids from Foster + Partners, som and BDP.

The mixed-use residential and commercial scheme will tackle a ‘hidden plot’ – the former home of the North Westminster Community School – and will focus on linking the basin through to St Mary’s Church, Paddington Green, and Little Venice.

Farrells project director Neil Bennett said: ‘Our proposals provide a remarkable opportunity to create a development which will re-establish the heart of Paddington – one of London’s ‘lost’ town centres – as well as to build upon our Paddington Basin masterplan work and our initiative to urbanise the Marylebone-Euston Road.’

A ‘green bridge’ could create 6ha of new parkland and ‘maximise the value of the council-owned land, as both an individual asset and an asset to the regeneration of the area.’
