Bellrock: "North London residents could soon see a massive regeneration project take place at Brent Cross in Hendon"

"According to constructionenquirer.com, the scheme, which is set to cost £4 billion, aims to double the size of the shopping centre.

"In addition, developers Hammerson and Standard Life Investments have plans to create a huge transparent canopy to cover the retail space. They also wish to improve transport links in the surrounding area by building a pedestrian bridge, as well as making other amendments.

"Mike McGuinness, development director at Hammerson, said the project aims to improve the lives of those living nearby:
"Brent Cross has been an important part of the community for over 35 years and our plans ensure it will continue to be part of a thriving new town centre, putting this part of London truly on the map as a popular neighbourhood and retail destination."
"A public exhibition by the developers earlier this year revealed that 87 per cent of attendees were 'for' [some of] the [cherry-picked] proposed ideas, reports kilburntimes.co.uk. However Barnet Council will now launch its own public consultation, in order to decide whether to approve the plans or not. [Eh?]

"When the regeneration is finished, the area will also benefit from an extra 7,500 homes, 4m sq ft of office space and four parks." [Stop it. We want to be sick.]
