Tottenham have been sharing regular updates about the progress of our new stadium and they are back, once again, with more information about what is currently going on. Last time we saw the developers moving on to the next stage of the build – erecting the giant 600-tonne roof that will cover the 61,000 capacity arena.

Tottenham revealed more about the progress that’s been done over the past two months and posted a video on their official website, citing the seats being used in our new £800m stadium. The recent story is that Lendlease have signed a £1bn development deal with Haringey Council to regenerate the area around the site of Tottenham’s new stadium in north London.

According to Football.London, the company were named as preferred bidders back in the summer of 2017 and the deal has now been formally signed, with the promise of 2,500 homes and 3,000 new jobs over the course of the project which will begin later this year.

Located next to Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, the major regeneration project will help in establishing High Road West as a new sports and leisure destination with improved public spaces and community facilities.

The ambitious regeneration plan includes a new local centre with new library and learning centre in a new public square with shops, restaurants and a community park. A new Tube station will also be installed that will help with getting fans to and from the new stadium once it has been opened.

White Hart Lane was often accused of having substandard transport links compared to London’s other Premier League clubs and that has been taken care now while building the new stadium.

Councilor Alan Strickland, Cabinet Member for Housing, Regeneration and Planning at Haringey Council told Construction Enquirer:

“This regeneration scheme has been strongly supported by tenants with local people heavily involved in shaping the plans for High Road West.

“It’s welcome news that getting started on the scheme has taken a big step forward today.”

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

Hopefully, the venue will be completed quickly. Tottenham have spent a lot of time away from home with Wembley being used as a temporary ground. We even played a Carabao Cup game against Watford at Stadium MK.

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
