Transport for London is examining the potential for development around the station which will help fund the station improvements and in particular, deliver full step-free access.
The main elements of development around the station will include:
- Restoration of the shopfronts
- Improving the bullnose to provide a series of better spaces and to remove the redundant area taken by the former smoke vents from the track below
- Appropriate development along Pelham Street to replace the wall and hoardings which have been in place for over 40 years and to restore active frontages to this side of the street
- Changes to the terrace along Thurloe Street to help facilitate step-free access to the Exhibition Road subway
