As the plan for the Museum of London was under way for four years, it got approval to work on. This new £337m home for the Museum of London in West Smithfield had incorporated a design team led by architects Stanton Williams and Asif Khan who worked together with conservation architect Julian Harrap.
So the works for Museum of London will now continue in association with the City of London Corporation. This is to ensure that the necessary legal agreements are in place as the main works will start in 2021. Approximately £200m of the £337m is funded by the City of London Corporation to deliver this scheme.
The Museum of London site covers the poultry market, general market, and a suite of buildings known as The Annexe. The suite of buildings includes the red house, fish market, and engine house. Enabling, demolition and structural works to the old buildings might cost around £4om. The new Museum of London will play a pivotal role in Culture Mile.
