Any plans developed for the 22ha of land will have to adhere to local planning regulations.
The short listed developers are:
- Westfield Europe Ltd

Network Rail Property managing director David Biggs said: “This brings us another step closer to realising an exciting and vibrant new district in the heart of London.
“The opportunities are vast. A regenerated Euston Station not only affords us the ability to improve connectivity and exceed the expectations of those travelling by train. It also allows us the rare chance to create new space for homes and businesses, to craft a desirable destination for people to live, work and meet.
“The new station can be a catalyst for local regeneration and increase connection across the local community, bringing huge benefits both to the area itself as well as the country as a whole.”
Contracts for both stations design and the Euston Master Development Partner will be awarded early next year.
HS2 also awarded the £6.6bn main civil engineering contracts for the first phase of the rail link today.
