The redevelopment of Vicarage Field Shopping Centre, adjacent to Barking station in the town centre, will not
only see 25,650sq m of new retail space delivered. Plans also include up to 1,250sq m of B1 offices, 81,750sq m
of residential space and around 7,750sq m of hotel space.
Benson Elliot with development manager Londonewcastle are jointly developing the scheme. As well as homes and space for new businesses and hotels, the development will also include a three-form entry primary school, healthcare facilities and leisure centres.
Green streetscaping and landscaping, extensive basement parking, and support services will complete the site. Outline planning permission for the project was granted last year (2017) and the next step for the project will be to submit reserved matters applications to Barking and Dagenham Council, before building begins in spring or summer 2019.
Studio Egret West is the architect for the scheme. It is likely to be completed around 2024/25.
