Euston Tower is a skyscraper located at 286 Euston Road, near the intersection with Tottenham Court Road.

No addresses have so far been added to Euston Tower

The area around the junction of Euston Road with Tottenham Court Road suffered significant bomb damage during the Second World War.

Patrick Abercrombie's contemporary Greater London Plan called for a new ring road around Central London called the 'A' Ring, but post-war budget constraints meant that a medley of existing routes were improved to form the ring road, including Euston Road.

An underpass to avoid the junction with Tottenham Court Road was proposed in 1961, with construction taking place in 1964.

The property developer Joe Levy was keen to develop buildings in the area and bought various properties. When the London County Council (LCC) refused planning permission because of the underpass development, Levy, who had outline planning permission, insisted the council pay him £1 million if they wanted to compulsorily purchase the site. Over the next four years, Levy bought properties along the north side of Euston Road, and an agreement was reached so that the council built the underpass and he built a complex of two tower blocks with office shops and apartments, the Euston Tower.

The tower attracted a number of significant tenants, including INMARSAT and the independent radio station Capital Radio.

Residents lead the way on Camden’s future
On Thursday 7 December, residents from across the borough met to share their thoughts and ideas about the future of Camden with local councillors and partners, including the police and health service. Topics discussed included how to make sure everyone in Camden has access to jobs to feel financially secure, to better and more affordable homes, making sure communities are safe, strong and open, that the environment is cleaner, and how to make sure Camden is a place that everyone respects. Above all, residents felt that in 2025 everyone should be treated fairly and equally and have access to the same opportunities, wherever they live. The Citizens’ Assembly has now met three times for in depth discussions about Camden’s strengths and to share ideas about how to tackle the borough’s challenges. Leader of Camden Council, Cllr Georgia Gould, said: “I wanted us to try a different approach where we handed over to a group of residents representing every part of our community to shape together our vision and priorities for the future. The results have been beyond anything I expected and it has been a privilege to follow the discussions. The Assembly has strengthened my view that Camden’s citizens are the most important resource we have. One Assembly member said that we can’t afford for there to be any lost voices in Camden. And I want this Assembly to be start of a new approach that draws on the ideas and energy of every resident of Camden.” The Citizens’ Assembly is just one way we’re looking to bring residents closer to the decision-making process in Camden. We are currently developing a new plan for Camden up to 2025 and invite anyone who lives, works or studies in Camden to share their thoughts and ideas. These will be fed back to councillors to help shape the borough’s future over the next seven years.

Taskforce to help young people stay safe
Camden has launched a new Youth Safety Taskforce to look at this growing issue of concern. The borough has seen an eight per cent rise in knife crime with injuries in the last year, according to the latest official crime figures, with young people often the victims of this crime. This is well below the London-wide increase of 18% over the same period (October 2016 to September 2017), compared with the previous year. The council, police and other local partners, such as voluntary youth services, are keen to look at the causes of the smaller but still significant increase in Camden and come up with possible solutions to the problem before it gets any worse. Our local politicians and senior council officers will be getting together with local police chiefs, voluntary youth services, young people and parents as part of the Camden Youth Safety Taskforce, which will also look at how young people are sometimes the victims of knife crime. We want every young person to grow up safely in our borough with access to all the opportunities Camden has to offer. The taskforce will be working with parents and carers, young people, voluntary youth services, our local police and MPs. At the same time, the council is continuing to invest in youth services, ensuring young people have the support they need to thrive. Councillor Abdul Hai, Camden Council’s Cabinet Member for Young People and Cohesion, is co-chairing the borough’s new taskforce with Holborn and St Pancras MP Keir Starmer. Cllr Hai said: “We have a good record in Camden of promoting community cohesion and helping to prevent youth violence. However, recent trends mean we have to take a fresh look at this issue and how best to tackle it. The taskforce will help us to hear from as wide a group of people as possible. Young people are sometimes the victims of violent crime and we need to make sure our young people can feel safe on the streets of Camden and that we listen to their concerns.” Keir Starmer MP said: “This is a really important initiative from Camden Council. There has been a worrying increase in youth violence in Camden and indeed across London. There is no doubt that more must be done to tackle this issue and ensure young people have the support they need to stay safe and avoid being caught up in the criminal justice system. I’m absolutely committed to working with the council and the community on this issue, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to co-chair the taskforce with Councillor Hai.” Detective Superintendent Caroline Haines, the senior Met Police lead for knife crime in Camden and Islington, said: “Rising youth violence and knife crime is sadly a reality facing much of London. We are absolutely committed to the Youth Safety Taskforce and welcome the opportunity of working together with our community and partners to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep the young people of Camden safe and confident. We will look to build on some of the excellent partnership activity that is already ongoing, but having input from the local community is also key and that is why I am really excited about the new taskforce.” The Youth Safety Taskforce, which held its first extended meeting for community partners today (Friday, 15 December), will: examine patterns of youth offending and violence in Camden and across London, using the latest data and research look at youth services in Camden, which are still relatively well-funded compared with other parts of the country and despite cuts to our budget by the government see what we can learn from initiatives in other cities – for example, recent work to combat youth gangs and violence in Manchester look at the role of social media in provoking or helping to instigate youth violence and victimisation find out how it feels to be a young person in Camden and hear from victims of youth violence and their families. Further information: Members of the Camden Youth Safety Taskforce include representatives from the Metropolitan Police, voluntary youth sector, Camden’s Youth MP, senior council officers and local politicians, including the Leader of the Council and Leader of the Opposition The taskforce is co-chaired by Councillor Abdul Hai, Camden Council’s Cabinet Member for Young People and Cohesion, and Holborn and St Pancras MP, Keir Starmer Its initial findings will be shared in March 2018, with a report due in June For more details, visit camden.gov.uk/youthsafetytaskforce Camden is also supporting the Mayor of London’s campaign to deter young people from carrying knives, which is called ‘London Needs You Alive’.

Euston

London Euston is the southern terminus of the West Coast Main Line - serving Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow.

Euston was the first inter-city railway station in London. It opened on 20 July 1837 as the terminus of the London and Birmingham Railway.

The site was selected in the early 1830s by George and Robert Stephenson, engineers of the London and Birmingham Railway. The area was then mostly farmland at the edge of the expanding city of London. The station was named after Euston Hall in Suffolk, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Grafton, who were the main landowners in the area.

Objections to the station by local farmers meant that, when the Act authorising construction of the line was passed in 1833, the terminus was relocated to Chalk Farm. However, these objections were overcome, and in 1835 an Act authorising construction of the station at its originally planned site was passed, and construction went ahead.

The original station was built by William Cubitt. It was designed by the classically trained architect Philip Hardwick and initially it had only two platforms, one for departures and one for arrivals. Also designed by Hardwick was a 72 foot-high Doric propylaeum, the largest ever built, erected at the entrance as a portico and which became known as the Euston Arch.

The station grew rapidly over the following years as traffic increased. It was greatly expanded in the 1840s, with the opening in 1849 of the spectacular Great Hall, designed by Hardwick's son Philip Charles Hardwick in classical style.

In the early 1960s it was decided that a larger station was required. Because of the restricted layout of track and tunnels at the northern end, enlargement could be accomplished only by expanding southwards over the area occupied by the Great Hall and the Arch. Amid much public outcry, the station building including the Arch was demolished in 1961-2 and replaced by a new building. Its opening in 1968 followed the electrification of the West Coast Main Line.

A few remnants of the older station remain: two Portland stone entrance lodges and a war memorial. A statue of Robert Stephenson by Carlo Marochetti, previously in the old ticket hall, stands in the forecourt.

On 12 May 1907 the City and South London Railway (C&SLR, now the Bank branch of the Northern Line) opened a station at Euston as the terminus of a new extension from its existing station at Angel.
