There's a new visual of the interior on the renewstreet site. Clicking on the thumbnail takes you to the old one though

I can't find any renders on the site apart from the two background pics... unless that's what you are referring to?

Oooh, very well spotted! Initially I thought it was just that the thumbnail was a cropped version with some bits looking a bit weird as a result but then you can quite clearly see that the escalator on the right hand side of the thumbnail is nowhere to be seen on the image - despite the fact we seem to be facing exactly the same direction in both.

I went to that page and the image looked amazing!

Unfortunately I then realised that it shows King's Cross, and just happened to be in Network Rail's header.

So we've got these two renders:




I'm hoping the first is the due proposal, I'm liking the look of the floor. The roof bubbles look more rounded too...

The rounded bubbles is more like what the plans show, but I suspect the escalators may have been moved to the West side of the Atrium

New Street Station’s £600 million redevelopment model goes on show
Oct 15 2009 by Adam Aspinall, Birmingham Mail

A SCALE model of the future of Birmingham New Street station goes on public display for the first time today.

The impressive design was unveiled at a reception in the Burlington Hotel in Birmingham last night and will form the centrepiece of an exhibition inside New Street station from today until Saturday.

Funded by Network Rail, Birmingham City Council, Advantage West Midlands and Centro, it is hoped the station will be transformed into a landmark, 21st century transport hub.

Built in 1967 to cater for 60,000 passengers each day, the station currently sees more 140,000 people using its services on a daily basis. Preparatory work has already begun on the £600 million redevelopment of the much-maligned station.

Designed to cope with growing passenger numbers, the new concourse is expected to open to the public in 2012. This will then be followed by the second phase, when the old concourse will be redeveloped to deliver a world-class station upon completion in 2015.

It is estimated that the re-development will bring more than £2.3 billion-worth of economic benefits to the city.

Richard Kirkman, Senior Commercial Sponsor for Network Rail, said: “The main aim of the new design is as much about the movement of people as the movement of trains. The old New Street has divided the city centre for far too long and we are aiming to re-connect the city centre by allowing pedestrians to walk through the atrium of the building 24/7.

“The new station will have eight entrances.”

Provisional work began last month and will eventually provide a concourse that is three-and-a-half times bigger than at present and enclosed by a giant, light-filled atrium.

Oh my good god, there's glass floors allowing ACTUAL NATURAL LIGHT TO GET TO THE PLATFORMS

What the ******* ****? Natural light on New Street's platforms!? My brain can't even comprehend such an outlandish thing!

They finally did something with the light on the platforms - it may be only a small area but this will have a massive effect, I reckon! And, crikey! Don't them platforms look swish?

This is going to look amazing - and I think they are going for the Grand Central Station look with the roof in terms of how it allows the light in. I am very very excited.
