The mayor of London Boris Johnson has given the green light to Tottenham Hotspur’s new White Hart Lane stadium.
The £400m Northumberland Park project will involve the construction of a new 61,000-seat stadium on the site of its existing home.
The stadium will include a retractable pitch that can host two American Football games a season.
The project will also include the construction of new public space to host events, a 180-bed hotel, sports and health centre, as well as the conversion of the Grade II listed Warmington House into an interactive club museum.
Johnson said: “White Hart Lane is already an iconic stadium, steeped in history, and the new venue will not only almost double its capacity, but provide world-class facilities to watch Premier League football, international sports events and concerts in the heart of the capital.
“The stadium will also be the focal point of a major drive to regenerate Tottenham, breathing new life into the area, creating jobs and boosting growth.”
