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.”
