Detailed plans by Chapman Taylor and Callison RTKL have been submitted for the £1.4 billion redevelopment of Brent Cross shopping centre in north-west London
The development, which will create more than 200 new retail outlets, 60 restaurants and a new cinema, forms the centre point of a wider £4.5 billion regeneration plan for Brent Cross and Cricklewood.
Backed by Hammerson and Standard Life, outline planning consent for the plans, also drawn up by Callison RTKL and Chapman Taylor, was granted in 2010.
If it gets the green light, the new shopping centre will double the size of the current Brent Cross site to 185,806m² of commercial space. Anchor tenants John Lewis, Fenwick and Marks & Spencer, which featured in the original centre when it opened in 1976, will have stores in the new scheme.
Hammerson chief investment officer Peter Cole said: ’This marks another significant milestone in the transformation of Brent Cross. We will create a world-class retail destination that will be the catalyst for a new and vibrant quarter.
‘Brent Cross has been an iconic part of retail for more than 40 years and our plans seek to ensure that it continues to define the next generation of retail in London.’
If approved, work is set to start on site in summer 2018.
