New Crossrail public realm proposals go on show

  • Comment

New images of the 185,800m² of public space around Crossrail stations have been revealed as part of a new exhibition at City Hall

Released as part of an exhibition displaying the £15billion line’s public realm proposals, the images include Foster + Partners’ Crossrail station at Canary Wharf, AHMM’s designs for Tottenham Court Road Station, and Bond Street Station designs by John McAslan + Partners.

Foster’s designs for the Canary Wharf Crossrail Station include four floors of retail space and a publicly accessible roof garden topped by a semi-open ETFE and timber lattice roof.

Terry Morgan, Crossrail chairman said: ‘Crossrail does not just stop at the top of the station escalators. Crossrail will help to improve London’s cityscapes, transforming the experiences of transport users. These urban realm proposals around Crossrail stations are well on the way to becoming a great addition to the project.’

Thomas Bender, lead advisor, Cabe at Design Council added: ‘We have conducted more than 80 reviews of different elements of Crossrail, helping the project deliver high quality, sustainable design. Our independence and breadth of expertise means Crossrail will enhance the lives of passengers using the stations, the spaces around the stations as well as ensuring value for the developer. We look forward to working with Crossrail in the future and sharing the vast knowledge that we built up around the project to benefit other towns and communities.’

The Crossrail Places and Spaces exhibition opened at City Hall on Tuesday and will run for three weeks. It will then be at the RIBA from 16 June and at the Building Centre from 21 July.
