Grahame Park, London.

Choices for Grahame Park (CfGP) has appointed a design team led by architects Jestico + Whiles for a key phase of its 95m [pounds sterling] regeneration gateway Phase 1b project.

Key to the ground-breaking development will be a new library, park, community centre and shops for Grahame Park, as well as over 500 new homes. Construction work is due to start in 2010.

Five architect design teams were shortlisted from 30 Europe-wide entrants to prepare design proposals for the three main mixed-use buildings and the new town square.

The next steps are for the Jestico + Whiles consortium to join the technical team to begin the process of developing the design proposals. This will involve consulting with the community, working up ideas and liaising with the Council's Planning and Highways departments.
