Dev Secs submit plan for major London retail, residential scheme

Development Securities PLC has submitted an application for a 37,000 sq m retail and residential scheme on the Edgware Road in Brent, North West London.

The development at 399 Edgware Road, is a mixed-use regeneration scheme which will transform a seven-acre brownfield site currently occupied by the derelict former retail development Oriental City.

The regeneration scheme will also deliver 223 new residential units in a mix of townhouses and apartments. 

New retail facilities for the oriental and far eastern community are central to the scheme, and 5,200 sq m of development will be dedicated to a 636-seat foodcourt, banqueting restaurant and a range of retail units, including an oriental grocer.  The development will also provide new landscaped areas of public realm and over 580 parking spaces.

Subject to planning permission being granted by Brent Council, redevelopment could begin in 2013 with Morrisons and the oriental and far eastern foodcourt opening in 2014.  There will then be a phased delivery of the residential element of the scheme, with the first units completed by 2016.

Development Securities has released the latest images of its major redevelopment, showing what the long-redundant site could look like once the regeneration is complete.  A flythrough animation, providing a virtual tour of the development, is now available online at
