U+I saw 700 new jobs, a community hub, brand new residential and retail units, educational facilities and landscaped public space for the North London borough of Brent.
This vision is now well on its way to becoming a reality, having just completed the first phase of our significant mixed-use regeneration project, 399 Edgware Road.
Once fully completed, the development will transform a formerly derelict seven-acre site into a vibrant new space and community hub in North West London. Designed by Sheppard Robson Architects, 399 Edgware Road will be an architectural landmark that sets a new benchmark for regeneration in the area.
The first phase of this £150 million project is anchored by an 80,000 sq. ft. food store which was pre-let to Morrisons.
The remainder of phase one comprises 50,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space and an extensive newly landscaped public realm.
Typical of U+I’s passion for retaining the ‘soul’ of the developments we undertake, 399 Edgware Road will keep its important historic cultural ties. The site formerly housed the Oriental City shopping centre, a popular destination for the East Asian community in London. With the new retail and restaurant space to be operated by leading Oriental and Far Eastern leisure companies, Loon Fung and Royal China Group, this crucial link will be nurtured.
The second phase of 399 Edgware Road will deliver over 180 new mid-market homes in partnership with L&Q, as well as space for Brent Council to build a new primary school and nursery. By the end of 2018 we expect the development to be completed and this new landmark for Brent thriving.
