Architects and commercial architects have been granted permission to begin work on a new “historic landmark” to commemorate the building of the first railway line in the UK, the Guardian reports.
The site, which was used by the first rail line, the High Street Railway, in 1884 is at a location in the city’s north.
The new landmark, which is being named the “High Street Railway Memorial” will feature a memorial plaque, as well as a collection of artefacts relating to the line.
The building, which opened in December, will be designed by the architect Paul O’Brien, who is known for his large-scale public works projects, including the Millennium Dome and the Millennium Bridge.
The landmark, at 632 acres (2.1 hectares), will be the first of its kind in Britain, and the first major public building to be named after a railway.
The town’s planning department approved the project last year, saying it was a “historic site of special significance”.
The High Street, which links Oxford Street to Piccadilly Circus, was the first in London to connect with the new High Street Rail, which will connect the boroughs of Hackney, Tower Hamlets, and Southwark.
A report by the London Borough of Tower Hammesford, which includes the site, said the “high-quality” building “will reflect the ethos of the historic heritage and provide a valuable link to the historic community”.
The town has been planning for the new site for some time.
In December, the council approved plans for a new visitor centre and a new entrance to the site.
A public inquiry into the railway line is due to begin in February.
A BBC News website article article Architects are being given permission by the local authority to work on the new landmark in London.
It will be known as the “HSC High Street Memorial”.
The design is expected to be completed in 2023.
The High Stains Building, which dates back to 1885, was built by the firm of Bancroft & Talbot, and is the tallest structure in London and the UK.
A plaque on the building will show the history of the railway and the “glorious achievement” of the town of High Staines, which built the High Staircase.
The line, which ran from St Pancras to the River Thames, was used between 1884 and 1892, and was known as “the Great Railway”.
The site was closed to visitors in the 1920s, but has since been used as a site for heritage conservation.
The area has been a site of ongoing heritage conservation work.
The historic site is named after Sir Charles Staunton, a town in Yorkshire and the founder of the city of London.
