Farrells' futuristic high-speed rail super hub

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.
The 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’ master plan 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.
