When will construction work begin, and when is the expected opening date?
In July 2018 the decision was taken to defer the start on site for the development works due to increased market risks in the UK with the intention to start once conditions are more settled. Construction timescales will therefore be confirmed in due course.
The redevelopment and refurbishment of Brent Cross remains a key part of the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration vision and Hammerson and Aberdeen Standard Investments will continue to work alongside the London Borough of Barnet, Argent, Transport for London and Highways England to deliver the scheme. Multinational engineering and construction company, Laing O’Rourke, was chosen as the preferred contractor for the main construction works following a competitive tender process. Laing O’Rourke has a significant track record of delivering major construction projects. This includes relevant experience in retail and leisure regeneration schemes such as Trinity Leeds, Westgate Oxford and Edinburgh St James Quarter.
