Crosstree Real Estate has submitted a planning application to Enfield Council for a major mixed-use redevelopment of Edmonton Green shopping centre. Proposals include delivering up to 1,500 residential units, new market building, public spaces, and redesigned streets that reconnect the community with surrounding buildings.
Crosstree’s masterplan is intended to help the centre respond to the changing needs of its catchment. It sets out ambitious plans to be delivered in 4 phases over the next 10 to 15 years, informed by comprehensive public consultation. Crosstree has submitted detailed plans for a first phase comprising 350 build-to-rent flats with ground floor commercial units, due for completion in 2023.
Covering 26 acres, Edmonton Green is already a vibrant mixed use destination, acting as a town centre for the surrounding North London community. It is home to more than 100 independent businesses, an established market, residential, offices, leisure centre, library, ASDA superstore, and bus station.
Since acquiring the centre in November 2018, Crosstree Partners has invested over £2m in the asset. This included a new playground and community garden, new seating, updated centre branding and signage package, redecoration and lighting upgrades. Crosstree’s latest plans have been designed to deliver much needed housing, create a night-time economy and ensure the centre continues to meet the needs of local residents. The masterplan also provides for significant greening of the town centre with the planting of 270 trees.
GCW Partner, Duncan Kite said: “These plans are transformative and demonstrate Crosstree’s commitment to ensuring the centre remains fit-for- purpose. We look forward to helping deliver an improved visitor experience at this thriving north London suburb.”
