Capital & Regional has submitted a planning application for a significant retail extension, residential development and new Town Square at The Mall Walthamstow including an 86,000-sq ft retail extension at the shopping centre to accommodate up to 12 new retailers and five food and beverage operators.
Capital & Regional is also seeking outline planning consent for up to 460 new homes located above The Mall, to be delivered with a development partner. The plans show the redeveloped Mall within an enhanced two acre Town Square, which includes informal play facilities, sensory gardens, flexible events space and feature landscaping.
Capital & Regional acquired The Mall in 1997. In 2015 it undertook a full refurbishment of shopping centre and has subsequently secured long-term commitments from national brands including TK Maxx, Sports Direct, The Gym Group and Lidl.
Executive director Ken Ford said: “Following the successful refurbishment of The Mall in 2015, we see huge potential to create an integrated destination comprising an enhanced retail and leisure offer and much needed new homes, all set in a remodelled public square adjacent to Walthamstow transport hub.”xxx
