PADDINGTON BARE: Like mini-tower blocks, the naked slipfomed lift and service cores for a new mixed use development rise up close to Paddington station in west London, on the site of the original Victorian station.

Bovis Lend Lease is contractor for the £86M project, first phase of a total £700M 11ha project by Development Securities and one of several schemes regenerating this rundown area close to the Westway section of the A40 to Oxford. Phase one will produce 48,000m 2ofcommercial residential, retail and leisure space.

As part of the scheme a 300m long section of the Grand Union Canal will be drained and refurbished for incorporation into the facilities. The steel framed 10 storey buildings are designed by architect Sidell Gibson Partnership with Pell Frischmann as structural engineer and Oscar Faber responsible for services
