Flinders Street Station project by Hassel and Herzog & de Meuron likely to be scrapped

A new design for Melbourne’s Flinders Street Station may never see the light of day. The project, won in competition by Hassel and Herzog & de Meuron, may be scuttled by the new Victorian Labor Government. According to Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, the award winning concept will cost approximately $1 billion to1.5 billion to realise over and above the $1.6 million already spent on the competition. In late February, Andrews proposed instead a $100m facelift to the current station to restore the crumbing icon to its former glory. The monies would fix the station’s leaky exterior roof and improve entrances and pedestrian underpasses. New tenants also would be sought for the station’s ballroom and interior spaces. Victorian Opposition spokesperson David Hodgett described Andrews proposal as a “band-aid solution.” In 2013 Hassel and Herzog & de Meuron were named winners of an international competition for the station project. The team beat out proposals by Johan Warlde Architects + Grimshaw, NH Architecture, and BVN Donovan Hill with Zaha Hadid Architecture.
