UK: Lambeth Council has commissioned architecture practice Grimshaw to develop a Waterloo Station Masterplan covering the station as well as the wider neighbourhood.

The project is supported by Network Rail, South Bank BID, South Bank Employers’ Group, We Are Waterloo BID, HB Reavis, Bourne Capital, SB Royal Holdings Ltd and LCR.

An interim masterplan report will be produced next year.

‘Grimshaw has a depth of experience working on projects of a similar size and complexity, they understand that a bold vision is needed for the future of Waterloo station to deliver a world class public realm’, said council leader Cllr Claire Holland.

The successful bid ‘showed a track record of delivering large-scale infrastructure projects and displayed excellent local knowledge that can meet the goals of both Lambeth Council and our partners.’
