Hammerson and Standard Life Investments have submitted a detailed planning application, in accordance with existing outline planning consent, for the £1.4bn redevelopment of the iconic Brent Cross shopping centre in London.
The plans, submitted to Barnet Council, envisage the refurbishment and extension of the shopping centre introducing more than 200 new retail stores, 60 restaurants, a state of the art cinema complex, hotel accommodation, a new town square, a relocated and enlarged bus station as well as improved public spaces. Brent Cross London is the northern element of the wider £4.5bn regeneration plan for Brent Cross and Cricklewood, for which Hammerson and Standard Life Investments secured outline planning consent in 2010.
Designed by Callison RTKL and Chapman Taylor, the proposed development will see Brent Cross shopping centre double in size to around 2 million sq ft with 7,600 car parking spaces to become a world-class retail-led, mixed-use destination that will meet the demands of multi-channel retailing.
Subject to planning consent, preliminary work on the development could start as early as summer 2018.
