We are pleased to announce that following four phases of consultation with local residents, businesses and community groups, we have now submitted a planning application to the London Borough of Camden for the O2 Masterplan Site. The application is with the Council for validation, and we will update the website once information is publicly available on the Council’s planning portal.
The proposals would see the Site – which includes the existing O2 Shopping Centre on Finchley Road, and surrounding land – transformed into a new green, comprehensive landscape-led masterplan which connects Finchley Road and West End Lane.
The submitted application is part detail, part outline. Overall, the scheme will deliver:
We have created an automatic ranking system for new-build homes in London based on several critical features around the development, like schools, parks, and transport infrastructure.
We have developed this new analytical tool to calculate the scores based on the location data. Note that AutoScore values are not set by us or anyone else – everything happens automatically.
Landsec’s strategic growth through urban regeneration was boosted last night as Camden Council’s planning committee resolved to grant planning permission for its O2 Centre Masterplan in the heart of Finchley Road, North West London.
The O2 Centre Masterplan, the largest planning application in Camden since Kings Cross, will deliver a new mixed-use urban neighbourhood on a 14 acre site in Camden. At the heart of the proposal is a plan to deliver new homes and green, public spaces on an under-utilised car park sitting behind the O2 retail centre, in a highly sustainable urban location well-connected by five train stations.
The Masterplan will deliver 1,800 energy efficient homes alongside 180,000 sq ft of retail, leisure and other community space. The decision gives the green light to a c.£1 billion long-term investment in the borough, with a significant package of social, financial and community benefits. The Masterplan will create 1,000 new job opportunities for local people and deliver up to £34.5 million additional annual spending in the local economy.
Mike Hood, CEO of Landsec’s regeneration arm said: “Our O2 Masterplan brings our purpose to life and is an important step for our business as we focus on shaping more mixed-use urban neighbourhoods that champion communities, the environment and quality of life. We are delighted at Camden Council’s decision to grant planning permission for the Masterplan. As long-term investors in the local area we want to contribute to its long-term success. By working with the Council and the local community we hope to repay the faith they have shown in us to shape a thriving and sustainable neighbourhood.”
As part of the group’s strategy, Landsec is growing its mixed-use regeneration business, preparing a pipeline of opportunities that provide flexibility on future commitments. Offering an attractive mix of returns through income generation, development upside and medium-term growth, mixed-use urban neighbourhoods offer a balanced risk profile through a mixed-use product and flexible phasing.
