By 2025, Haringey Council aims to bring more than 5,000 jobs and 10,000 new homes, as well as nearly 1million sq ft of new employment space to Tottenham.
This afternoon On Location session took a detailed look at this major strategic opportunity area for London. With key discussions around Crossrail 2 moving forward, and with Tottenham having just been announced as one of the GLA's new Housing Zones, this area is set to see huge change through an extensive regeneration programme which aims to make the most of improved links to central London.
An afternoon briefing invited local stakeholders, including council representatives, developers, investors and occupiers to present forward strategies, infrastructure projects, major developments and future investment opportunities. This was followed by afternoon study tours and networking drinks at N17 Design Studio hosted by John McAslan and Partners.
