Old Oak Update 20:18 - May 20 with 5246 viewsRoller

A team led by Aecom with Asif Khan, BIG, MaccreanorLavington and WilkinsonEyre has won the contest to masterplan the £26bn redevelopment of London’s Old Oak Common.

The consortium, which also includes Bilfinger, GVA, Fluid, PBA, Spacehub and East, saw off six other heavyweight teams to land the lead design role on the 140 ha regeneration project, CN’s sister title Architects’ Journal revealed.

The Old Oak development, which will be the only place where Crossrail and HS2 intersect, is expected to deliver around 24,000 new homes and 55,000 jobs.

Among the bidders to lose out on the prestigious job were Allies & Morrison, Grimshaw, HawkinsBrown, Arup, Farrells with Heatherwick Studio, and Karakusevic Carson with 5th Studio.

Tendered by Transport for London on behalf of the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC), the £3m contract asked for a “bold” but “deliverable” redevelopment programme which would “establish a new benchmark for successful long-term placemaking” in the area.

Around 70 per cent of the land — currently mostly factories and railway sidings — is publicly owned and will be transferred to the OPDC in the coming years.

PLP Architecture with Arup and West 8 has already drawn up a masterplan for the regeneration zone’s largest private landowner, Cargiant.

The 18 ha scheme, dubbed Old Oak Park and backed by development partner London & Regional Properties, will deliver 7,000 homes, a cultural quarter, schools and parks.

Old Oak Common’s centrepiece will be a new High Speed 2 and Crossrail interchange station which is planned to open in 2026.

A design competition for the station and three other key HS2 stops is set to be launched later this year.

Preliminary talks between the Science Museum and Natural History Museum over a potential Old Oak Common outpost also raised hopes of a future design competition earlier this year.

The Aecom team will now be asked to draw up a “commercially viable and technically deliverable vision” based on the area’s existing Opportunity Area Planning Framework and draft Local Plan.

The team will eventually secure outline planning permission for the area and deliver development briefs for key sites, creating a clear context for neighbouring developers and landowners.

The preferred design “option for refinement [and] first draft strategies” are expected to be released in early 2018.

In March, former BPI chief Liz Peace was annouced as ODPC’s new chair.

This isnt the site that the stadium was planned to be in. The whole OPDC area is made up of several sub areas. This is the one with the stations not the car giant site

Why stop now, just when I'm hating it
Poll: Is it essential that QPR stay in the Borough of H&F?

More info here:

As Tonto said this is only for part of the OOC site, the total site is 650ha and this plot is 134ha, more info here:

Looking at the above link it would appear that the site that we were eyeing up is roughly 50% publicy owned (OPDC) and 50% owned by CarGiant. Considering that CarGiant aren't interested in dealing with us and have their own plans it appears that this option isn't feasible and unless we can acquire enough land (we already own some & are already developing some too) elsewhere in the remaining 516ha land at OOC then OOC is not an option, our best bet is probably persuading OPDC that we would be good for the area, which I believe we've been doing for some time, and that they include us in their plans.

Poll: Who’s better?

Always fancied Davis Langdon in their new iteration of AECOM to win this.

It's growing legs now. This will see the true intent of Foney Toney

Cherish and enjoy life.... this ain't no dress rehearsal

Reads like a request for the inclusion of a gay bar.
