In the Rudolf Place plans, is anything to happen to Vauxhall Station?

Last time I was there, I remember it being a rather important station in dire need of a major upgrade.

It is an important station, yes.

I don't think the Rudolf Place development involves any upgrades to it.

However, unrelatedly, TfL are upgrading the tube station as we speak (adding a new, wheelchair-friendly entrance), and Network Rail announced last week they would upgrade the overground station as part of the Waterloo upgrade, although they didn't specify what this would involve.

The debarcle with the Arup bus terminal olny adds a more intresting dimension to it.

I loved that old building, and am interested to see how they develop it. It seems a tad confusing though, as it looks as though it will be partly open-air. I can't really envisage how Whiteleys will look from the drawings here, compared to how it is today. Where is this outdoor area going to be, I don't see the 10 story buildings, and how on earth is this going to cost a billion pounds?

The design and access statement (part 2) discusses the design evolution of this scheme.

The cost points to the extensivity of the rehabilitation and new additions coupled with the level of quality specified.

I believe the theatre now has a scaled back design - shame the original would have been pretty impressive.

One Oxford Street reminds me of the Library in Birmingham!
