New heart for Tottenham Hale : proposals revealed

September 2018
Argent Related has released details of the submitted proposals for its major redevelopment of central Tottenham Hale in London. We have been working with them on the construction strategy for the project’s six new buildings.

Argent, developer of the hugely popular area around King’s Cross Station, has joined forces with US company Related in a strategic development partnership agreement with the London Borough of Haringey for the urban regeneration project. They have submitted a planning application for the five brownfield sites earmarked for change, supporting the council’s vision of a new ‘district centre’ for the area. Whitby Wood is providing civil, structural, geotechnical and flood risk engineering for each of the road-bounded sites, which are located by the Tottenham Hale transport interchange.

Argent Related’s press release:

“Working with AHMM, Alison Brooks Architects, Pollard Thomas Edwards and Grant Associates, Argent Related has designed a scheme with public spaces and ground-floor experience at its core. Six buildings will deliver: 1,036 new homes — a mix of affordable, market sale and rental; new retail spaces; co-working and office space; a health centre serving 30,000 local people and two football pitches’ worth of well-lit, elegantly paved open space with seating, greened with 75 new trees.

After two years of local consultation and design work, the proposals show a considered, high-quality scheme which is sensitive to surrounding areas, prioritises pedestrians and cyclists, encourages visitors to spend time outdoors, and provides space for retail and leisure amenity sheltered from the busy urban environment, all of which will be curated by Argent Related.

Tottenham Hale Station, located in London’s largest GLA-designated Housing Zone, is undergoing an upgrade of over £30m to its London Underground and National Rail stations and has been proposed as a stop for Crossrail 2. London’s first new further education college for 25 years, the National College for Digital Skills (ADA), opened in 2016 and is set to move into its new building adjacent to the Argent Related sites in 2020.”

The redevelopment scheme project team includes: infrastructure engineer Buro Happold; cost consultants Mace and Faithful & Gould; and project managers Total Property Solutions and Gardiner & Theobald. The application is likely to go before the council’s Planning Sub-committee later this year.
