A new vision for a £5bn new North London neighbourhood ‘Brent Cross Town’ has been revealed by developer Argent Related and Barnet Council, and this new development is something to really get excited about!

Previously known as Brent Cross South, the new plans reveal that the site will spread out over 180-acres, with 50 acres of parks and playing fields, and incorporating 6,700 new homes for sale and rent, and 3m sq ft of office space. The office space will create a new business ecosystem for 25,000 employees, offering flexibility, purpose, and competitive advantage to like-minded organisations in a large variety of different sectors.  

The development will also be a new hub for state-of-the-art sports and leisure facilities. It will include restaurants, retail including local amenities and services, culture, and events. 

It will also cater to the needs of students with student accommodation and the redevelopment of three local schools.  

The development will contribute to London’s green economic recovery with sustainability, health, and wellbeing, and will bring new energy to the community.

Argent Related is making four remarkable pledges for the new Brent Cross Town which are: 

  • To create ‘the’ place in London to participate in sport and play 
  • To make a new North London town where all can flourish 
  • To be a net-zero carbon town by 2030 at the latest 
  • To strengthen existing connections, both locally and into Central London; connecting businesses, customers, friends, and family.  

The Town Centre will connect to King’s Cross in 12 minutes via the new Brent Cross West station which will be completed by VolkerFitzpatrick by the end of 2022. 

Construction company, Galldris Group, started enabling early infrastructure works this year for the main Brent Cross Town scheme. 

Nick Searl, Partner of Argent Related and Joint-Lead for Brent Cross Town, said: “This is an exciting moment for us and our partners at Barnet Council. 

“After several years of careful thought and planning it’s a real privilege to set out our vision for Brent Cross Town, a park town that will support the future of London. 

“We will demand the highest commitments to health and wellbeing, sustainability and ensuring flourishing and connected communities.”
