Urban-realm landscaping and wildlife habitats, as well as parks, will snake around 7,500 homes on a site close to the shopping centre west of Brent, north-west London.
Existing playing fields will be reprofiled and tree-lined streets will thread through the urban core into the parks. The area for regeneration is 151ha. Almost £40m will be spent on public open and green space and £190m will be put aside for new environmental measures.
Key themes for the project are headed by parks and green open spaces, with emphasis also given to residential streets, a major high street and community facilities.
Macgregor Smith Landscape Architecture helped draw up the masterplan for Hammerson and Standard Life Investments.
Brent Cross Cricklewood Development Partners director Jonathan Joseph said: "The regeneration will deliver exceptional green spaces, 7,500 homes, improved public transport and new facilities."
