The building has a timber structure and will use zero-carbon heating and cooling systems.

Design features include a timber floor structure, flexible open floorplates leading onto balconies and a striking warehouse-style roof pavilion with wonderful terraces and far-reaching views of the parks and Hampstead Heath beyond.

If required, numbers 3 and 4 can be connected to provide c. 500,000 sq ft of space, with expansive c. 45,000 sq ft floorplates. The building's position at the gateway to Brent Cross Town suits major organisations with an outward-looking focus who value easy links to both central London and the rest of the UK.

The Brent Cross Town masterplan will deliver:
- 6,700 new homes with a mix of sale, rental and affordable homes
- 3+ million square feet of new office space providing over 25,000 jobs
- A new high street, with local shops and restaurants
- Improved transport connections, with the new Brent Cross West Thameslink station serving the area
- Better walking and cycle routes
- New bridges over the North Circular Road, Midland Main Line and Hendon Way
- New squares and parks with inspiring places for children to play
- New and improved community facilities.

Together, these three co-ordinated initiatives provide an unparalleled opportunity – 15 million sq ft of development over 370 acres, serviced by exceptional transport links into and out of central London.

Early enabling infrastructure works for Brent Cross Town began in 2020. It is anticipated that the first phase of homes and offices will be occupied from 2024.
