This month Corstorphine + Wright, Soundings and LCR hosted Public Exhibitions on the plans for the redevelopment of Waterloo International Concourse Levels to create new retail and leisure facilities.
The lower levels of the former Waterloo International Terminal (below former platforms 20 – 24) are being converted into retail and leisure uses and in our drop in exhibitions we welcomed the public to come and find out more about the proposals, take part in the consultation process meet the team and share their views.
The new proposals will provide the opportunity to reuse an award-winning building which has been closed since Eurostar services moved to St Pancras in 2007, and will deliver modern retail and station facilities to complement the existing facilities at Waterloo Station.
The project is being promoted by LCR, working closely with the Department for Transport and Network Rail. Meanwhile, community engagement specialists Soundings are acting as an independent facilitator to ensure that views from the local community are listened to and taken into consideration as the proposals are finalised.
The site comprises former Eurostar departures, arrivals and car parking levels underneath platforms 20 – 24. These proposals sit alongside Network Rail’s plans to enhance capacity at Waterloo Station, which is the busiest station in the UK, by bringing platforms 20 – 24 back into regular use.
The designs were welcomed by the public and subject to DfT approval a planning application is expected to be submitted next month.
