Wed 12 - Sat 15 Sep: Westfield Whitgift Croydon Wars: The Hammerson Empire Fights Back

"Developer Hammerson will hold an exhibition on its plans for the Whitgift Centre, Croydon, during September. The company is proposing to build up to 130,000sq metres of retail and restaurant space on the site of the shopping mall.

"Members of the public will be able to view the plans between Wednesday 12 and Saturday 15 September in the North End Mall, adjacent to Café Giardino.

"A spokesman for Hammerson said:
“Whitgift Quarter will incorporate the Whitgift Centre site, Centrale and North End, and is designed to link in with the rest of the town centre to the benefit of the entire local economy, creating in the region of 5,000 jobs.
The scheme has been specifically designed to meet the needs of Croydon, and to fit in sympathetically with the town’s heritage and existing streetscape, reinstating North End’s role as the town centre’s retail spine.”

"The plans will also be available online from 10 September at www.whitgiftquartercroydon.co.uk.

"They also include:
  • Up to 10,000 m² of additional leisure space
  • Up to 500 residential units, developed in conjunction with renowned developer Urban Splash, which has been behind some of the most innovative city centre living schemes, including the Rotunda in Birmingham. The residential element will be at the heart of the scheme, and include the conversion of Centre Tower to form a landmark residential development
  • Potential for a 130 bed hotel or 200 bed student accommodation and or 1,000 m² of offices on the Wellesley Road frontage
  • Over 3,150 parking spaces."
