Leeds Station Designs Unveiled in Anticipation of HS2
Posted on: 10/11/2017

Atkins consultants are leading a group of design, engineering and project management consultants on the planning and design work for the new station complex.

The lead for transport and infrastructure will be Gensler’s, with Hiro Aso working as lead architect, who was also involved with the redevelopment of Kings Cross station.

The new-look station will offer passengers a seamless interchange for changing trains.

The station will include new entrances, a new central common concourse, extra platforms, a new undulating roof, footbridge and the creation of a neighbouring station campus for commercial, residential and leisure projects.

Leeds city centre’s road network is planned to be revamped, with adjoining streets and those under the station being pedestrianised, and dark arches being converted into new retail and leisure spaces.

The new common concourse will include 80,000 sp ft of leisure and retail space, along with a potential for 3m sq ft of commercial development around the station.

The arrival of HS2 is a significant component of the regeneration of the Leeds South Bank, a 250-hectare regeneration project creating a minimum of 8,000 homes and producing around 35,000 job opportunities, and also features a new learning hub, a new city park and a reimagined River Aire waterfront.

Mike McNicholas, Managing Director for Infrastructure at Atkins, said: “The Leeds Station district will be one of the largest integrated transport hubs in the UK.”
