BL appoints two Euston architects


British Land and Network Rail have appointed two architects to design the new Euston Station development, Property Week has reported.

Allies and Morrison have been appointed to oversee the redevelopment of the 15-acre site, which is expected to cost £1bn.

They previously designed the BBC’s headquarters at White City and have been tasked to design a scheme, which it is hoped will act "as a regeneration catalyst for both the major transport interchange and the wider Euston area".

Once completed it will feature 3 million sq ft of residential, retail and commercial property.

Euston station will be penned by Foreign Office Architects and BL hopes to submit planning permission by 2010 and start work the following year.

Trains from the West Midlands, Scotland and the north-west all arrive in Euston, which is close to Oxford Street and the British Museum.
