Argent Related, a British urban regeneration company, has secured consent from the London Borough of Haringey for a regeneration scheme in Tottenham Hale.
The six-year project will create a pedestrian-friendly district centre, with nearly 70 new trees, for local residents, workers and visitors in Tottenham Hale.
The project will be constructed across five pieces of land, in six new buildings adjacent to Tottenham Hale’s rail, underground and bus stations.
It will deliver 1,030 new homes, which will consist of a mix of affordable tenures, including a large proportion of council-owned social rented housing, market sale and rental; up to 20 new retail spaces; co-working and office space; a health centre serving 20,000 local people, and more than two football pitches’ worth of new public open space.
Argent Related formed a strategic partnership with the London Borough of Haringey in 2016.
The company has been working with councillors, officers and local residents, businesses and community groups to design a scheme that is sensitive to its surrounding areas, prioritises pedestrians and cyclists, encourages visitors to spend time outdoors, and provides space for new shops, restaurants and a cinema.
Argent Related director Tom Goodall said: “Over the last three years we have got to know Tottenham as a place with ambition and creativity, with a distinctive history, sense of pride and integrity.
“We are very pleased the Council and local people have put their trust in Argent Related to deliver the physical change Tottenham Hale deserves and we look forward to delivering on our promises.
“As well as building homes – including a significant amount the Council will own and manage as much-needed social rented housing – our development will bring with it high-quality new public spaces, places for a local economy to grow, and hundreds of new jobs.”
A consultant team, which includes Alison Brooks Architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Pollard Thomas Edwards and RUFFarchitects, has developed the proposals. Landscaping design has been provided by Adams & Sutherland and Grant Associates. G&T is providing project management services on the regeneration.
Construction is expected to begin in 2019 and the first new homes are likely to be completed by the end of 2020.
