Laing won the contract for the development in 1975, however various planning and design changes delayed the start of construction until April 1978. Many old buildings were demolished on the 17-acre site, including a derelict factory which had been the original premises of Peterborough’s engineering firm Perkins. On the boundary, an old public house and a group of almshouses were preserved. The development was not without problems however, and it suffered from many shop closures during the recession of the early 1990s. In 2002, it was bought by The Mall Company and a multi-million pound redevelopment programme was launched. Wood Green Shopping City, now The Mall Wood Green, is a giant complex with a unique design.
