Spurs could turn to Make in quest to expand stadium

Make Architects could be called on to help Tottenham Hotspur FC extend their White Hart Lane home

Make Architects is in discussions with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club over the possibility of redeveloping the club’s stadium, White Hart Lane.

The north London club has also employed the help of Tony Winterbottom, formerly of the London Development Authority, to manage the proposals to expand the ground to around 52,000 seats, from its current capacity of 36,000.

The scheme will cost about £300 million, with £150 million being borrowed to finance the project.

According to the BBC, the redevelopment will force Spurs out of White Hart Lane for at least two seasons, which has prompted reports of a ground-share option with West Ham United.

It is understood the club has approached the Football Association about playing their home games at Wembley, but was put off by the prices the FA was asking for.

Plans to develop a site just north of White Hart Lane have been mooted, while another option is to move the club to Enfield, but it is believed Tottenham are against moving the club out of London.
