West Hampstead Thameslink station has been commended in a prestigious national award scheme that has attracted more than 250 entries from across the country.
After opening in January 2011, the station, in Iverson Road, has been praised by Civic Trust Awards judges for its forward- looking and sustainable design and community benefits.
The accolades are one of the oldest built environment award schemes in Europe.
First Capital Connect customer service director Keith Jipps said: “This is a great accolade and reflects the truly impressive features of the new station.
“We are delighted that it has become such an integral part of the community – both for our passengers who enjoy the new ticket office, footbridge, lifts and WH Smith which opened recently and for the hundreds who visit the weekly Farmers’ Market which we allow to be held in the new public space.”
