Vision for west London’s Old Oak Common area
Terry Farrell & Partners has unveiled its futuristic vision for the transformation of Park Royal City in west London.
area around Old Oak Common is earmarked to become Britain’s first
“high-speed rail super hub”, together with 12,000 new homes and a
waterside park. Terry Farrell said: “High Speed Rail is not just a
transportation strategy it’s a nationwide economic catalyst that
requires creative place making.
“This is an incredibly exciting
opportunity to reshape and unblock the development of a critical part of
north-west London, and crucially to have a huge impact on the country
as a whole.” Farrells’ masterplan was prepared as part of
Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s submission to the Department for
Transport, backing the government’s plans for a new high-speed rail line
from Birmingham to London.
