The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) have announced the shortlist for the design competition to create a new central London HQ - replacing their existing New Scotland Yard building.

The shortlisted teams are:
Allford Hall Monaghan Morris
Allies and Morrison
Foster and Partners

The new HQ, to be called Scotland Yard, will involve the redevelopment of the existing and currently unoccupied Curtis Green MPS building located on the Victoria Embankment, London, SW1.

The Curtis Green Building, named after architect William Curtis Green, sits within the Whitehall Conservation Area between the Norman Shaw Building and the Ministry of Defence. It faces onto the Victoria Embankment with views across the River Thames to London County Hall, Westminster Bridge and the London Eye.

The competition was posted by WAN’s Business Information Service.
