A Gideon Euston vision

with one comment

The Evening Standard tweeted a vision of a 'Gideon Euston' HS2 terminal, with a replica of the old station arch

The Evening Standard tweeted an artist’s impression of a “new” masterplan showing how Euston could be rebuilt to satisfy George Osborne’s vision of a HS2 and real estate “super-terminal”. And with a replica of the old Arch awkwardly positioned in front of the banality.

  1. The article is in the Homes & Property section of yeterday’s ES.

    The article refers to the Eustonvision.com website and if you search for this in Google you will find http://www.eustonvision.com/euston_estate_vision_masterplan.pdf, which is dated May 2008.

    This scheme is very similar to the “new super-terminal at Euston” which is the subject of the piece. The most noticeable change is the addition of a replica Euston Arch. Also, the War Memorial has been moved from it’s current position in two the three pictures for “new” scheme.
