Grimshaw unveils new Paddington proposals after redesign - image

Grimshaw has revealed its redesigned proposals for the 'triangle' site close to its controversial - and now-abandoned - Fourth Span scheme at Paddington Station.

The practice had originally drawn up a design for the canalside plot as part of a larger masterplan for the station which included the demolition of the iconic Grade I-listed shed.

However, last August (Paddington's fourth span saved from Grimshaw demolition ) Network Rail decided to postpone a massive development of the west London site and instead restore the structure - a move welcomed by conservationists at the time.

Now Grimshaw has resubmitted new plans for 'Building Three' at the north-west corner of the station on behalf of developers Hammerson (Paddington) and Domaine Developments.

The revised office proposals, which replace a scheme designed for Network Rail as part of the wider 2003 application, have been significantly remodelled and include proposals for a new Hammersmith and City line station.

Other amendments include the removal of an overhang which would have jutted out over the rail tracks.

The 18-storey block will feature 15 floors of offices over three storeys of transport interchange and public space.

It is hoped the scheme will start on site in January next year.
