Argent Related reveals plans for London’s Tottenham Hale regeneration
The Kings Cross development in the heart of London has been widely recognised as a succesful example of modern urban planning, transformed over the period of about a decade or so from a neglected part of the capital to a budding hub for creative businesses and residential life. Which is why, now that this large scale scheme is slowly taking shape and the final elements are being commissioned or in construction, all eyes are turning back to Argent, the developer behind the project – and what they will do next.
The answer was revealed today, when Argent Related (Argent, joining forces with USA developer Related) announced they received planning consent for a major redevelopment of the centre of Tottenham Hale. The new scheme is set to reinvigorate this north London district, mixing a residential element with retail, leisure and office facilities.
The six-year development project will ‘give Tottenham Hale the reinvigorated district centre it deserves’, says Argent Related
The project will engage a team of architects, who will work on various aspects of the large scale complex. Confirmed firms include Alison Brooks Architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Pollard Thomas Edwards and RUFFarchitects. Landscaping will be key in the design, which is set to include a new square and some 70 new trees, all overseen by landscape architects Adams & Sutherland and Grant Associates.
‘As well as building homes – including a significant amount the council will own and manage as much-needed social rented housing – our development will bring with it high-quality new public spaces, places for a local economy to grow, and hundreds of new jobs,’ says Argent Related director Tom Goodall.
Construction is set to begin in the summer of 2019, with the first residential spaces reaching completion a year later. §
