Do you have the vision, experience and commitment to build London’s newest Town Centre?

The Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration project covers a total of 151Ha (373 acres) of brownfield land, less than 25 minutes travel time from London’s West End. Capable of accommodating 1.4 million square metres of residential and commercial floorspace, it will create a vibrant new London destination. A revised outline planning permission for redevelopment was approved in January 2014. The consent spans the North Circular Road (A406) introducing new retail, leisure, residential and community uses that will transform the area. More information can be viewed

The London Borough of Barnet wishes to appoint a development partner to enter into a joint venture which will lead the transformation of the area to the south of the A406, accommodating at least 7,500 new homes, significant commercial space and a new public realm, dramatically improving connectivity across the area.
Shopping centre owners, Hammerson and Standard Life Investments, will retain control over the delivery of the Brent Cross Shopping Centre extension which will comprise new retail, leisure and restaurant uses to create a world class venue. A significant infrastructure funding package from the shopping centre investors will support the project. The appointed partner will need to bring a proven track record in large scale and transformative urban regeneration. The partner will be able to demonstrate a commitment to place making through development management, urban design, planning, finance, management and plot sales in order to maximise the scheme’s potential.
It is expected that the Development Partner will start the delivery of the initial phases by 2017.
To express an interest and request the Pre Qualification Questionnaire for this project, interested parties are requested to contact Capita Property and infrastructure via the contact details set out in section I.1 of this notice and complete and return the PQQ by the date indicated in Section IV.3.4 of this notice.
