Capital & Regional granted consent for Walthamstow development
Capital & Regional has received formal consent for its extension and development plans at The Mall Walthamstow. The approved plans, which will transform Walthamstow town centre with The Mall at its heart, include:
• An 86,000 sq ft extension to the existing shopping centre
• Up to 500 new residential homes, including affordable housing
• TFL upgrade to Walthamstow Central station including a new entrance within the Mall
• An enhanced new town square, children’s play area, landscaped park gardens and family amenities.
The extension to The Mall Walthamstow will provide additional space including an additional grocery anchor, other convenience provision as well as ‘grab and go’ and casual dining, which will all be customised to the locality. Works will begin in 2020.
Chief executive Lawrence Hutchings said: “Our vision for Walthamstow has been developed hand-in-hand with the council and residents and we have tailored the mix of homes, leisure uses, services and amenities to meet the needs of the local community.
“All of this will ensure Walthamstow remains a vibrant neighbourhood for generations to come, underpinning the resilience of The Mall, our positive footfall growth and, ultimately, our income profile.”
