Delancey and Land Securities unveil design for mixed-use redevelopment at railway station in south London
Delancey and Land Securities have unveiled plans for a mixed-use redevelopment at Clapham Junction station.
The 1.6ha site will see a two-level shopping street, 500 homes and improved facilities at the station. The scheme is designed by architects Collado Collins and delivered by the Metro Shopping Fund joint venture between Delancey and Land Securities.
The arhcitects have incorporated plans for two new entrances to the station, one on St. John’s Hill and a second one on Grant Road, as well as better access to ticket halls by installing escalators and improvements to the subway.
A roof garden on top of restaurants and cafes is also part of the scheme, which will be easily accessible from the new residential units.
In line with latest sustainability requirements 20% of the scheme’s energy consumption will be generated from renewable sources, and cycle parking facilities will be provided.
The Metro Shopping Fund will be consulting on its plans later this month and aims to submit a planning application to the London Borough of Wandsworth in the spring.
Glenn Burton of Metro Shopping Fund commented: “Our vision is to create a new place that is both relaxed and sophisticated. We want to address some of the unique challenges and problems faced by Clapham Junction historically and to provide the area with a new heart.”
David Pape, route director at Network Rail, said: “Network Rail welcomes these proposals, which fit with our long term strategy to improve Clapham Junction station for everyone that uses it.”
