History[edit] Brent Cross
Brent Cross
Shopping Centre opened in 1976.[2] On 14 December 1991, four explosive devices were planted by the Provisional Irish Republican Army
Provisional Irish Republican Army
(IRA). The bombs were discovered and defused before they could have been detonated.[3] On 6 November 2012, six people on three motorbikes entered the shopping centre and smashed in the windows at jewellers Fraser Hart. An estimated £2m worth of jewellery was stolen.[4] The car park of the shopping centre was used as a filming location for the James Bond
James Bond
film Tomorrow Never Dies.[5] The shopping centre is featured in Ken MacLeod's science-fiction novel The Star Fraction. The action takes place in a balkanized UK, in the middle of the 21st century, and the ruins of the shopping center are used as a local market for the anarchist enclave of Norlonto ('North London Town').[6] Future Developments[edit] Brent Cross
Brent Cross
shopping centre is planned to be extended as a part of the Brent Cross
Brent Cross
Cricklewood development scheme. The John Lewis and Fenwick Department stores will remain in their current location, Marks & Spencer will move to a new location on the extended site, the bus station will be relocated, and new parks, a "living bridge" and a cinema are planned, along with new multi-story car parks (with the existing open air car parks used for the shopping centre extension). Outline planning permission was achieved in 2010, and preparatory site clearance started in early 2018. Construction had been expected to start in 2018,[7] but is now delayed to 2019.[8] References[edit]
