Green light for British Land's £400m Kingston scheme

British Land has received final approval for a £400m scheme to redevelop Eden Walk shopping centre in Kingston, Surrey. 

The property firm, along with pension fund the Universities Superannuation Scheme, secured formal planning approval from Kingston Council following a two-year process.

Designed by BDP Architects, the development will include 380 new homes, 35,000 sq ft of office space, 28 retail units, 12 restaurants and cafes and a new “boutique” cinema.

The regeneration will create an estimated 600 jobs. Start on site is not expected until towards the end of 2019 at the earliest. No contractors have yet been appointed.

British Land head of retail development Richard Wise said: “The proposed redevelopment of Eden Walk is designed to complement the existing retail offer and create a high-quality central space for Kingston which will, over time, become the heart of the town.”

Leader of Kingston Council Kevin Davis added: “Once completed, Eden Walk will offer an attractive blend of retail, leisure and living space that is in keeping with the character of our royal borough, and furthers our ambitions to make Kingston the dominant retail destination in south-west London.”
