British Land and USS win consent for £400m Kingston development
British Land and Universities Superannuation Scheme have secured planning approval from the Royal Borough of Kingston for the £400m regeneration of Eden Walk, Kingston.
The proposed scheme, designed by BDP Architects, will include 28 new retail units; 12 restaurants and cafes; 380 new homes; 35,000 sq ft of office space; three large public spaces and a boutique cinema, located next to a sky restaurant.
The formal planning approval follows an extensive programme of community engagement over two years, resulting in significant local support for the development.
Richard Wise, head of retail development for British Land, said: “The proposed redevelopment of Eden Walk is designed to complement the existing retail offer and create a high quality central space for Kingston which will over time, become the heart of the town. It will be a place that reflects modern lifestyles, where people can live, shop, work and relax with friends and family.”
