WELCOME

Welcome to the consultation website on the future of the O2 centre and the land around it.

Landsec are excited for the opportunity to work with London Borough of Camden and the local community to develop an exciting and truly mixed used vision for the site of the O2 centre and the land around it. This redevelopment has the opportunity to create something really exciting and transformative, enhancing the area and connecting Finchley Road and West Hampstead.

The site is currently home to the O2 Centre, a large retail leisure complex with a cinema, gym and a number of high street chains including a large Sainsbury’s supermarket housed in the basement.

The remainder and over half of the site is taken up by a tarmac car park, with space for 520 vehicles. The surface level car park is not a good use of space and pedestrian routes are disjointed, badly lit, of poor quality and often unsafe.

The site is an important part of the local area and at around five hectares is the equivalent to five football pitches in size – a waste of much-needed land and space in this busy part of London, which could be put to much better use for the benefit of the local area and community.

The Mayor of London and London Borough of Camden, with input from local groups, have long identified this site as having the potential to deliver much-needed new homes for the area, as well as community facilities, shops and green and open spaces.

Since summer 2019, we’ve been speaking to local people about the site and their ideas for the area. At the end of last year, we unveiled our new emerging vision for the site, which we think can deliver something really exciting and transformative for the area.

The emerging vision 

1. A new residential neighbourhood – open, green and inclusive

2. A town square – shopping and leisure around a lively public space

3. A new tree-lined linear park – stitching the neighbourhood together and providing a new green link from east to west

4. A new green – the open space the area so badly needs surrounded by community facilities

Serious about sustainability – promoting healthy lifestyles, sustainable travel and net zero development

This website provides more information about the evolvoing vision and links to all the consultation work and materials we have produced so far. We’ll continue to refresh and update it as we progress our designs and speak to people. We hope you find it helpful.
