Brompton Road Tube Station For Sale

The Ministry of Defence is flogging Brompton Road, a disused station on the Piccadilly line between South Kensington and Knightsbridge. The station building, a fetching Leslie Green design with oxblood tiles that last welcomed trainloads of  suited and booted commuters in 1934, is expected to fetch in excess of £20m. It's on the MoD's books due to its role as a wartime command centre where Churchill himself would often hold court.

Regular readers of this site will be familiar with the many attempts to resurrect Brompton Road, notably those of Ajit Chambers's Old London Underground Company which is looking to return superannuated stations to life as event spaces.

According to the estate agent handling the deal:

This well located prime central London site provides an excellent redevelopment opportunity and we are expecting a high level of interest.”

Unfortunately for any multi-millioniaire Tube aficionado hoping that to steal a march on rush hour, the platforms themselves remain the property of Transport for London and are sealed off from the station.

We had a tour of the site two years ago.

Please God, dont let it go to Chambers and his tacky awfulness

Hi , how is it tacky and awful to use space that is currently unused.
And have events in there i think that is a wonderful idea.
however i definetly don't think a "London eye esque" type of use would be suitable.

If it's for sale, why doesn't some ordinary Londoner buy it, renovate it with new tiles, new decor and platform details with ticket gates and then sell it to TFL? It would be reasonable...
