Brent Cross will be transformed in to a “world class destination for shopping, dining and leisure” under revised £4billion plans published today.

Partners Hammerson and Standard Life Investors have amended elements of a previously approved application to carry out a complete redevelopment around the site of the existing shopping centre.

More than 7,500 new homes will be built under plans to transform the retail park in to a bustling town centre and create 27,000 full-time jobs.

The designs, which include a cinema and a major new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the North Circular Road, will go on public display next week before they are submitted to Barnet Council later this year.

Architects published the first images of what the transformed shopping complex might look like with a new network of pedestrian bridges, streets and retail spaces.

A new main square and shopping streets will be covered by large transparent canopies.

Under the plans, the existing Brent Cross Shopping Centre will undergo a “complete transformation” and renovation.

Car parks surrounding the centre will be developed with shopping areas, hotels, restaurants and cafes.

A £200million investment in the road network, including a larger Staples Corner junction and improvements to junctions on the M1, A41 and North Circular Road will also be brought forward under the revised plans.

Mike McGuinness, development director at Hammerson, said: “These amendments will create a world class destination for shopping, dining and leisure.

“The network of covered streets and spaces will provide a fantastic environment for shoppers and local people, while the new bridge for pedestrians and cyclists will unite both sides of the North Circular Road.”

James Stevens, head of UK development at Standard Life Investments, said: “These plans will lead to a huge boost for the area. 

“It will give local residents fantastic parks, new community facilities and much better transport connections across the whole area as well as great places to shop, relax, eat out and enjoy.”

Developers say they expect to be in a position to start work by late 2015.

The outline planning application was the largest ever submitted in north west London when it was approved by the local authority in 2010.

Planners will go back to the authority with their amendments later this year before submitting detailed plans in 2014 if outline consent is given.

Two weeks of public exhibitions across the area will begin at Brent Cross Shopping Centre between 11.30am and 6pm on Sunday.

Full details of all the exhibitions will be published at from Sunday.
