Major architect names linked to Euston station developer bids

  • Comment

Architects including BIG, AHMM, Farrells and SOM are understood to be in the running to design the huge £4 billion development above the new High Speed 2 (HS2) station at Euston

According to sources close to the project, the firms are members of the three heavyweight teams shortlisted for the HS2 master developer partner role at Euston Station.

The winning bidder will advise on and subsequently deliver a major mixed-use development, including new homes, offices and shops, working with HS2, Network Rail, the station design contract winner and local councils to create ‘a unified masterplan’ for the area.

Following the withdrawal of developers Landsec and Westfield, just Canary Wharf Group, Euston Regeneration Partnership (led by Argent Related Services) and Lendlease remain in the mix.

Other architects believed to be partnering on the proposals include RIBA 2014 Stirling Prize winner Haworth Tompkins and Asif Khan. 

The winning bidder is expected to be announced early next year. 

Euston station is the most complex of the four HS2 stations that will be built as part of its phase 1 route from Euston to Birmingham.

HS2 was asked for comment.

Could these architects be in the running for the Euston job?

  • Farrells with KPF (linked with Euston Regeneration Partnership led by Argent Related Services)
  • Allies and Morrison with SOM (linked with Canary Wharf Group)
  • AHMM, Asif Khan, BIG, Grimshaw  and Haworth Tompkins (linked with Lendlease)
