North London development will contain 197 homes

Sheppard Robson’s designs for a £75m mixed-used development in north-east London featuring nearly 200 homes has been given the go-ahead by Haringey council.

The proposed development on the site of an old department store building in Wood Green is for property investment firm Lazari Investments, owned by Cyprus-born billionaire Chris Lazari.

It will feature 197 homes – 40% of which will be affordable – as well as a Premier Inn hotel, shops and restaurants.

The buildings will skirt a new public courtyard which Sheppard Robson said would connect the development to the surrounding area, including the south end of Wood Green High Road.

 The scheme will project managed by JLL.
