Chapman Taylor and Callison RTKL lodge plans for £1.4bn Brent Cross revamp

Brent cross 1

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.

    Deep breath, then, fellow NW Londoners - after, what, 12 years, here it begins. Remember, Westfield lovers, Hendon got there first!

  • Doubling the size of Brent Cross Centre without significant investment in improved public transport will take the North Circular Road to new levels of gridlock and condem North West Londers to yet more traffic created air pollution. The major Brent Cross renovation should be the catalyst to create a new transit corridor along the line of the N Circular from Hanger Tube station on the Central Line that would encourage redevelop of the road frontages and around new transit stops along to station at Brent Cross. Transit could take the form of segregated busway or elevated light rail that would create a densensification of NW London with a development corridor that could accommodate 10,000s of new homes.
    Land use/transportation planning has been at the core of British Town Planning Theory that British Consultants have exported to the World but apparently forgotten when it comes to city planning in the UK.
