The proposed scheme

Having revolutionised retail when it opened 40 years ago, the proposed plans to transform Brent Cross Shopping Centre form the main element of Brent Cross London, which is part of a larger £4.5bn regeneration plan for Brent Cross and Cricklewood, for which Hammerson and Standard Life Investments received outline planning consent in 2010.

  • Development CGI - May 2017

The plans will renew and revitalise this significant quarter of North London into a new urban village as part of the emerging town centre. The main elements of Brent Cross London include:

  • 2 million sq ft of retail and leisure space
  • up to 150 new retail stores
  • 50 restaurants, a cinema complex and hotel accommodation
  • A town square that will become a hub for leisure and entertainment activities
  • An enlarged and relocated bus station
  • Improved public spaces, including a new Riverside Park
  • New homes
  • New employment and training prospects for local people (up to 3,500 retail jobs and 5,000 construction opportunities)

Ensuring the scheme remains relevant to changing retail and consumer demands, the new centre will attract leading international and UK retail brands alongside space for local and pop-up businesses and concept stores to test consumer appetite for the latest trends.

The new scheme will double the size of the existing centre and will retain flagship John Lewis and Fenwick stores. The scheme will deliver a new Marks & Spencer anchor store and all three were part of the original Brent Cross when it opened in 1976.

A major new addition will be the creation of a market level on the upper floor paying tribute to London’s popular foodie heritage. Set to be a destination in its own right with restaurants, food stalls and producers, the architecture for this quarter will be inspired by the urban markets in London.  

Brent Cross London will also benefit from parks, a main town square and riverside landscaping delivering a new pedestrian route to a living bridge and creating a connection to the wider regeneration taking place to the south of Brent Cross London.
