"About 190,000 new homes, parkland or even a factory could replace Heathrow Airport in west London if it closes, designs unveiled by architects show.

" 'Heathrow City' designs have been commissioned by Transport for London and backed by Mayor Boris Johnson who wants a Thames Estuary hub airport.


"Mr Johnson said Heathrow redevelopment was needed given the demand for homes.

"The government-appointed Airports Commission will decide in 2015 on whether an estuary airport is feasible.


"The Heathrow City plan envisions the future if the commission rejects plans for a third runway and selects the Thames Estuary option."
