The six-year development project by Argent Related, on which Faithful+Gould is providing Quantity Surveying services, will give Tottenham Hale the reinvigorated district centre it deserves, creating a welcoming, pedestrian-friendly heart, greened with around 70 new trees, for local residents, workers and visitors to enjoy.
Across five pieces of land, in six new buildings adjacent to Tottenham Hale’s rail, Underground and bus stations, Argent Related will deliver 1,030 new homes – a mix of affordable tenures including a large proportion of Council-owned social rented housing, market sale and rental; up to 20 new retail spaces; co-working and office space; a health centre serving 20,000 local people, and in excess of two football pitches’ worth of new public open space.
In 2016 Argent Related formed a strategic development partnership with the London Borough of Haringey and has since been working closely with Councillors, officers and local residents, businesses and community groups to design a scheme which is sensitive to its surrounding areas, prioritises pedestrians and cyclists, encourages visitors to spend time outdoors, and provides space for new shops, restaurants and a cinema.
Tom Goodall, Director, Argent Related, says, “Over the last three years we have got to know Tottenham as a place with ambition and creativity, with a distinctive history, sense of pride and integrity. We are very pleased the Council and local people have put their trust in Argent Related to deliver the physical change Tottenham Hale deserves and we look forward to delivering on our promises. As well as building homes – including a significant amount the Council will own and manage as much-needed social rented housing – our development will bring with it high-quality new public spaces, places for a local economy to grow, and hundreds of new jobs.”
The proposals were developed by a world-class consultant team including Alison Brooks Architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Pollard Thomas Edwards and RUFFarchitects, with landscaping design by Adams & Sutherland and Grant Associates.
Construction could begin in Summer next year, with the first new homes being complete by the end of 2020. Argent Related values the relationships it has built with local people and will continue to work closely with them to deliver the detailed plans for the retail spaces and public realm, to ensure they celebrate the diversity and cultural richness existing in Tottenham Hale today.
