The plans for the High Road West area of Tottenham also include the space around the upcoming Spurs stadium, which will be built next to the current White Hart Lane venue.
Arup has worked with the London Borough of Haringey, the Greater London Authority and local residents over the last year to develop three options for potential change for the High Road West area in north Tottenham.
The proposed plans include ideas for a new public space that links the station, the High Road and the new stadium. This is intended to form a vibrant focal point for the area with new homes, businesses and leisure facilities surrounding the new public space – benefiting the community and making the most of increased footfall on match days, when up to 56,000 fans will flock to the area.
“From upgrading transport systems to reinvigorating currently abandoned open spaces and delivering new homes, the opportunities are considerable and the residents of Tottenham deserve a thriving and flourishing community,” said Arup director Jerome Frost.
Arup was appointed in 2012 and led a team – which includes S333, 00:/[zero zero], Landolt+Brown, Jones Lang LaSalle, UsefulSimple and Space Syntax – to prepare the Tottenham investment framework and regeneration strategy. The work included development of the investment framework across the greater Tottenham area as well as detailed masterplan studies around key sites like the new Spurs football stadium, the High Street and housing estates renewal.
Local views and feedback will be used to develop a final masterplan, which will be released for public consulatation later in the year.
