One of the Most Significant Areas for Growth and Regeneration in London
Historically, Colindale was an important hub for industrial activity; today it is undergoing extensive regeneration plans.
This NW9 area has been identified as an area for significant strategic growth and is one of the largest growth and regeneration areas in North London. Colindale is part of The 2020 Vision – a plan proposed by London Mayor at the time, Boris Johnson – and development is underway to dramatically transform the suburb.
The new and improved Colindale will be a modern metropolis and key gateway into Central London. Investment fundamentals for the area will include: 12,500 new homes, a new piazza address, a redesigned Tube station, four new schools and 2,000 new jobs.
Brent Cross Cricklewood
Brent Cross Cricklewood covers an area of around 350 acres and is undergoing a £4 billion masterplan.
The new town centre will provide 7,500 new homes, 27,000 jobs, three re-built schools, community facilities and improved public transport and road links. Parks and open spaces are another important facet of this redevelopment; once complete there will be 22 acres of new open space that will include a transformed Claremont Park.
Brent Cross Shopping Centre will also be vastly improved; it will offer a wider range of shops and evening entertainment options that will boast a new cinema and a variety of restaurants. This historic retail space is set to become a world-class shopping destination.
After 150 years of industrial use, the area to the north of King’s Cross station is being transformed into a vibrant new city quarter.
An ambitious and exciting regeneration scheme; King’s Cross is on track to offer a multitude of new homes, retail space, offices, cultural venues, bars and restaurants. These buildings will be set within an intricate framework of luscious new parks, communal squares and 12 new streets.
The £550 million redevelopment will feature a new London landmark – King’s Cross Square – which will include an area dedicated to public art. Residents of the Silver Works will only be a 22 minute Tube journey from King's Cross, making this an ideal destination for commuting or for recreational use.
