Mixed-use Tottenham scheme details unveiled

Mixed-use Tottenham scheme details unveiled

Details have been unveiled of a mixed-use scheme built on land adjacent to Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium at White Hart Lane.

The site next to the venue is an old good yards currently used for storing building materials. However, the club has unveiled plans for its extensive redevelopment. 

Apart from the old station master's house - a listed building that will be refurbished - the plan is for a newly-built development comprising 330 homes, plus shops, offices and a public square.

There will now be a public consultation on the plans, with a series of events being held in the next few weeks where local residents can find out more about the scheme and express their opinions on it. 

Tottenham said of the scheme: "As the owners of the site and a genuine part of the local community with a long term stake in the success of the area, we are delighted to present these proposals for consultation.

"We have already delivered new homes, schools and community benefits for north Tottenham and the progress of our stadium scheme has seen over 1,000 jobs generated for local residents."

Redeveloping the Tottenham area is a key element of the project, as the club and council seek to make the stadium project much more ambitious, with aims beyond simply creating a bigger venue for the team to play in.

Work is now ongoing to build the new White Hart Lane, which partially overlaps the old stadium. When finished, it will hold over 60,000 fans and will have far more executive and corporate facilities than the old stadium, as well as an additional 24,000 seats.

The club will move back in next season, after playing home games at Wembley in the meantime. 

Tottenham are one of several London clubs to have undertaken stadium projects in recent years, or to  plan redevelopments. 
 
Neighbours Arsenal moved from Highbury to the nearby Emirates Stadium in 2006, while West Ham United left Upton Park over a year ago after beating Tottenham in the race to become the new tenants of the 2012 Olympic Stadium. 

Chelsea are also planning to expand Stamford Bridge after a failed bid to buy Battersea Power Station.
