The company behind plans to replace the O2 Centre has promised to include a supermarket in the new development, saying it is already in discussions with Sainsbury's.
Landsec is hoping to build 1,850 new homes, a cinema and gym on the Finchley Road site.
It has now provided detail relating to its previous commitment to include a “large supermarket" in the development.
A spokesperson for Landsec said: “We know that the Sainsbury’s is really important to the local community.
"That’s precisely why we have committed to re-providing a supermarket in the new town square as part of these plans and we are in discussions with Sainsbury’s about their needs, size and format of the re-imagined store.”
Chair of the West Hampstead Gardens and Residents Association Brigid Shaughessy told the Ham&High: “The O2 is very functional, and residents are frightened of losing what we have, like the big Sainsbury’s."
