FT: "If you build it, will they come? The £8bn regeneration of Brent Cross"

FROM the platform of the recently opened Brent Cross West station, London’s first new mainline station in a decade, Brent Cross Town looks like a porcupine formed of cranes and half-finished buildings. 

In 15 years’ time, according to plans, the same platform will overlook a gleaming new neighbourhood comprising homes for 45,000 people; new streets, cafés and shops; three rebuilt schools and several new office buildings as well as 50 acres of parkland and playing fields.
