New-look St Pancras opens its doors to Europe

  • Comment

Arup's £800 million refurbishment and redevelopment of St Pancras Station in King's Cross, London, has opened its doors to the public.

Eurostar has begun its operations at the Grade I-listed station following 13 years at Waterloo International.

The first passenger service set off for Brussels at 11:01 this morning bringing an end to six years of restoration work by a consortium led by multi-disciplinary consultants Arup.

Chapman Taylor Architects designed much of the new retail and ticketing areas located on the ground floor, once used as a beer warehouse.

The move followed an announcement last week that Grimshaw Architects' Waterloo International would stand empty for more than a year, while measures are taken to redesign the platforms to make them suitable for domestic trains.

For more information on the transformation of St Pancras Station and the new Eurostar link see The Architects' Journal issue 08.11.07.
