Hotspur Football Club has started work on the £400m Northumberland Development Project in North Tottenham in the UK.
The project involves construction of a 56,000-seat stadium alongside 280 new homes, a renovated heritage square, public space including a podium for community events, improved highways and public transport.
It also includes construction of a 150-room hotel on Worcester Avenue, a large food store and new megastore, as well as a new courtyard setting for the retained historic buildings.
According to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the demolition work on the Northumberland Development Project has been taking place over the past few months, and work on the supermarket, to the north of the stadium, will commence later this year.
the next phase of development will include construction of the stadium, and tender for the project is expected begin at a later date.
In February 2012, Haringey Council in London approved revised plans for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s Northumberland Development Project.
Haringey Council also approved changes in the project, including improvements to highways and the local transport system, to make the regeneration scheme more viable.
The new homes will not be built until the demolition of the current White Hart Stadium, which is expected to be completed in 2016.
Hotspur Football Club will work with Haringey Council in the development for the sports-led regeneration in Tottenham.
The new stadium will be designed like a bowl which will contain crowd noise inside while the inclusion of a single tier stand will help generate a wall-of-sound effect.
External skin of the stadium will be clad like flowing lines, and the wavy roof of the stadium will carry the club’s colours.
The new design will offer comfortable seating with more leg-room and easier access, as well as an enhanced concourse, concession and toilet facilities, and better viewing options for wheelchair users.
