Studio Egret West is masterplanning a £1 billion regeneration of the area next to Tottenham Hotspur’s new football stadium in north London
The London-based practice is working on developer Lendlease’s major regeneration project High Road West. The scheme will create 2,500 homes, more than 18,580m² of commercial, retail and leisure space as well as a new public square and park.
The development will include tall residential buildings and will deliver 30 per cent affordable homes across the site, with approximately 430 shared ownership homes and 300 affordable rent homes.
Early concept designs, which are out for consultation, reveal plans for a public square, surrounded by shops and restaurants, which will link to the new White Hart Lane stadium.
The space, to be called Moselle Square, features a curved multi-tiered library as its centrepiece, with a residential high-rise above.
Lendlease, which Haringey Council chose as its development partner last year, said High Road West would provide replacement homes for secure tenants and residential leaseholders on the Love Lane Estate, where 297 homes are to be demolished to make way for the scheme.
Pollard Thomas Edwards (PTE) is also part of the design team and is working with residents to co-design a new block of homes for existing estate residents to move into while new homes are under construction.
HAT Projects, meanwhile, will be designing a refurbishment of the Grange, a Grade II-listed community centre which will also be used as an on-site office for Lendlease during the scheme’s delivery.
Studio Egret West founding director David West said High Road West was a ‘challenging, multi-faceted regeneration project’.
He added: ‘We are responding with a layered approach that manifests itself in a series of character areas grown from the existing High Road and upgraded White Hart Lane station.
‘Mixed-use throughout, the emerging plans include a sequence of new public spaces – yards, passage, park and square – that create the foundation for a cross-section of urban neighbourhood life.’
The Tottenham scheme is separate to the controversial Haringey Development Vehicle (HDV) which remains in limbo after former council leader Claire Kober quit over the scheme at the beginning of this year.
High Road West is being delivered through a different model to the HDV, with Lendlease acquiring the land itself rather than transferring it into a jointly owned enterprise.
A hybrid planning application with outline proposals for the site and first-phase plans for PTE’s homes scheme will be submitted by the end of the year.
