Transform the passenger experience for millions of station users
Deliver a world-class, accessible transport hub
Ensure the station can cope with projected growth in passenger numbers
Create a new seven-day-a week landmark destination for passengers and the local community
Provide new green spaces open to the public
Boost jobs and economic growth
The proposals will be delivered at no cost to passengers or the taxpayer through the construction of a new office building and hotel on top of the existing station concourse, its entrances and the existing Andaz Hotel.
This will create a landmark seven-day-a-week destination with new leisure and cultural spaces for passengers, visitors and the local community.
The new building will create a number of elevated public gardens, such as a third floor public space and roof garden at the top, incorporating generous areas of planting, publicly available sports courts and swimming pool, and spaces where people can pause and engage with nature.
