PHOTOS: Tottenham Hotspur forced to revise new stadium plans

20 May 10 Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has been forced to revise its plans for a new stadium in north London, due to heritage concerns.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has been forced to revise its plans for a new stadium in north London, due to heritage concerns.

The club will now retain and refurbish the Grade II-listed Warrington House, plus three other locally listed buildings, in its proposed Northumberland Development Project.

It will also build a larger public square on a raised podium, and create an 'active courtyard' for the retained historic buildings. The hotel has been redesigned and the number of homes in the scheme slashed from 434 to 200.

The new planning application was submitted to Haringey council this week.

KSS and Make Architects have designed the scheme. Besides a 56,250-capacity stadium, the redevelopment will also feature a 150-bedroom hotel and a 77,000 sq ft supermarket on the 8ha site.

The original plan came under fire in January from CABE, which was concerned over how the housing, supermarket, stadium and public square would interrelate.

Daniel Levy, chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We have looked again at the overall masterplan and design of buildings in the south, as well as the impact on Tottenham High Road. We have used this opportunity to make further design improvements to the scheme.

“We remain focussed and committed to delivering a world class, increased capacity stadium, full of atmosphere and creating a thriving new environment on the High Road which would deliver regeneration benefits so important to this part of the Borough and the local community.”
