An inclusive place that works for all

“A place that integrates and connects the communities of Finchley Road and West Hampstead. A new neighbourhood that reflects Camden’s unique culture and provides something for everyone – a mix of homes where people can stay and grow; jobs and local opportunities; shops, restaurants, leisure and community facilities; and new green public spaces to relax with friends and family.”

The six key principles of the masterplan vision are:

The masterplan behind this vision is defined by three different character areas:

Evolved masterplan for the O2 Centre site, May 2021

The residential neighbourhood: Our vision is to create a mixed community, with a range of different homes that suit the needs of Camden’s residents.

In this quieter section of the site, homes will be set around public courtyards and connected by a long, tree-lined park.

The community green: The green will be surrounded by community amenities and services at ground floor, such as a community centre and doctors surgery. This space will feel welcoming and inclusive, designed to promote a sense of safety and cohesion as well as having homes for all.

The new town square: Similar in size to Pancras Square at King’s Cross, the new town square off Finchley Road will be a focus of dining, leisure and shopping. The square will be surrounded by new cafes and restaurants, homes, workspace for local companies, and a mix of shops including a supermarket. It will be a destination as well as a convenient place to pick up a sandwich, loaf of bread or coffee.

We have listened to the feedback so far and evolved the masterplan in line with your comments.
