intu Watford extension steams ahead

Construction has now officially started onsite at intu Watford and is expected to complete in 2018, integrating Charter Place with the existing intu Watford centre to create a new homogenous focus for Watford’s retail and leisure offering.

Leslie Jones Architecture was appointed by intu to integrate and extend two existing shopping centres and create a new, single retail and leisure destination for the thriving commuter town.

A central requirement of the project was to bring intu’s brand to life in the cohesive 1.4 million sq ft centre. Based on a long-standing relationship with the client, Leslie Jones was able to inject creativity into the design, while ensuring intu’s commercial requirements were met.
