It will show off space for 115 shops, cafe and restaurants at the heart of the red-brick building itself – over the ground and first floors of the boiler house and the two turbine halls.

The 42-acre site will be home to a total of 250 outlets, with the first 40 due to open in late 2016 next to the first phase of homes known as Circus West.

Together with other leading global retail and business brands, we believe this combination will create a truly world-class destination and a significant addition to the fabric of London.”
