Hammerson puts in plans for £1.4bn Brent Cross redevelopment

Developer Hammerson and Standard Life have submitted detailed plans for the £1.4bn redevelopment of Brent Cross shopping centre in north-west London.

The development, which will see more than 200 new retail outlets, 60 restaurants and a new cinema, forms the centrepoint of a wider £4.5bn regeneration plan for Brent Cross and Cricklewood.

Hammerson and Standard Life secured outline planning consent for the plans, which have been drawn up by architects Callison RTKL and Chapman Taylor in 2010.

If given the green light the new shopping centre will double the size of the current Brent Cross site to 2m sq ft of space. Anchor tenants John Lewis, Fenwick and Marks & Spencer, who featured in the original centre when it opened in 1976, will be retailed 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”.
