Regenerating Tottenham

KSS have worked with Newlon Housing Trust since 2006 completing two award-winning, mixed-use schemes in the centre of Tottenham, London. These schemes include seven discrete buildings incorporating office, education and medical facilities as well as housing across a broad range of tenures.

The first was Hale Village, a high-density sustainable urban development which sits on the edge of the Lea Valley and includes 366 affordable residential units and Newlon’s own Head Offices. Its facilities, distinctive architecture, green spaces and environmental standing have created a new generation of eco-district.

The second project with Newlon was the recent completion of Cannon Road providing 222 affordable and shared ownership flats, commercial space and a new primary school.

We also completed Berland Court with Newlon at Northumberland Park. This mixed-use urban infill development comprises of 34 affordable residential units, Tottenham Hotspur FC retail outlet and a Kingdom Hall place of worship.

Newlon has recognised Hale Village and Cannon Road in their submission for the UK Housing Awards in the category ‘Outstanding Approach to Regeneration’. Associate Director Daniel Blackburn said, “Tottenham has changed significantly over the past decade and continues to change. Light industrial uses have steadily given way to higher intensity mixed use environments supporting a burgeoning cosmopolitan population. We are very proud of our buildings for Newlon with the range of uses they accommodate and believe they have had a positive influence on the changing face of Tottenham.”

Tottenham encapsulates the inclusive and diverse spirit of London with its rich history and growing network of new businesses. As the regeneration gathers pace, Tottenham will continue to grow as a community and beacon of positive change in the centre of the world’s most exciting city.

The winners of the award will be announced in a ceremony at Lancaster Hotel on the 26 April 2017.
