The Brent Cross developer is to help Haringey Council create a new town centre
Haringey council has confirmed its strategic partnership with King’s Cross and Brent Cross developer Argent Related for a £1bn transformation of Tottenham Hale in north London.
The partnership will deliver 800 homes – for market sale, build to rent and affordable – around the area’s transport hub, which will ultimately include a Crossrail 2 station.
Alongside the new mixed-tenure homes, will be shops, cafes, restaurants and community facilities, including a health centre and improved green spaces.
The regeneration of Tottenham Hale represents the first phase of London’s largest Housing Zone and is the latest of a string of major investments in the area.
Mace is currently on site delivering a £400m new Populous-designed stadium for Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur, while the borough has shortlisted three developers for a wider £2bn 5,000 home regeneration programme.
The three shorlisted teams are Lendlease, a pairing between Morgan Sindall and Affinity Sutton, and a third team comprising housing group Circle Pinnacle, Catalyst and US investor Starwood Capital.
Leader of Haringey Council, Claire Kober said: “We are delighted to be working with Argent Related, a partnership which brings together two companies, one with a track record in successfully transforming King’s Cross and the other with extensive expertise in major development.”
Robert Evans, partner at Argent, said: “Argent Related is focused on opportunities, like Tottenham Hale, to work with committed local authority partners to transform urban areas and improve the lives of communities with the right housing and workspace provision, social and community facilities, public infrastructure and other investment. We are delighted with today’s decision and look forward to moving forward quickly, into design and delivery.”
