TfL is currently analysing options for refurbishing the building in ways which would protect its key heritage design features for future generations, as should be expected of any Grade I listed building.

In recognition of the quality and historic importance of the building TfL is leading the planning and listed building applications approval process, rather than engaging with an external developer to do this.
