Hamiltons to masterplan Manchester Victoria improvements

Hamiltons Architects is to masterplan Manchester Victoria Station, as part of a design team including Arup Associates.

The consortium, led by AMEC Developments and Morley, will see the west London-based practice join up with Space Syntax, Heritage Architecture and project manager Davis Langdon.

Chosen by Network Rail as preferred bidder, the team's proposals involve improving connections between the station, Manchester Arena and the city centre, in an attempt to create a 'more coherent' plan for one of the busiest parts of Manchester.

Following its selection the design team is now working on detailed proposals for the area, with a view to gaining planning permission for the masterplan by the beginning of next year.

According to Hamiltons, the first phase is likely to involve improvements to the station itself and the first tranche of commercial buildings in the surrounding area.
