Denham's decision was made on 7 December stating that: "...although the application proposal is broadly in compliance with the development plan in many respects, there are significant areas of conflict, most particularly in relation to design principles and conservation."
Permission for the demolition of several buildings necessary to deliver the project across the 4.2 acre site was refused in the decision, making the proposal very unlikely to succeed through appeal.
Arcadia's design encompasses 6 buildings for mixed use purpose including 17,279 sq m of retail, a 24 storey housing tower with 567 residences, 490 sq m of office space and 1,363 sq m of restaurants and cafes.
Foster + Partners were unable to comment at time of publishing.
