Works to transform the historic Brent Cross Shopping Centre into a massive new shopping mecca are to begin soon.
With plans for a cinema, 60 restaurants and 200 more shops, the new Brent Cross Shopping Centre will rival Westfield.
Developers Hammerson and Standard Life Investments have said the company is keen to start construction on the 370 acre-site "as soon as possible" and aim to start building in 2018.
The regeneration, which is due to be completed in 2022, will be double the size of the current shopping centre.
It is expected to create up to 3,500 retail jobs and 5,000 construction opportunities.
The new complex will have a new town square and a space for pop-up shops alongside well-established brands.
Here is what we can expect when it's finished.
