Paddington Basin

  • Comment

Terry Farrell's masterplan scheme for Paddington Basin was revealed at the MIPIM exhibition in Cannes last week, with the backers pushing the development's happy proximity to a 15-minute rail link into Heathrow which is set to begin a full service this June. The scheme, for Elliott Bernerd's Chelsfield and Godfrey Bradman, involves four Farrell buildings in phase one - 70 per cent commercial and 30 per cent residential - and two more commercial buildings. The first phase is on 1.6ha of land on the north side of the 0.8ha Basin Waterspace, with an extensive waterfront of 300m. Working with Farrell's on the residential side are Jestico + Whiles and Paskin Kyriakides Sandes. Permanently moored commercial narrowboats will contain art galleries and cafe boats. The first two buildings (left and middle in the picture) will be finished by 2000, when Paddington station's £50 million refurbishment, by Alsop and Stormer, will also be complete.
