Tottenham Hotspur have been given the go-ahead to progress with the £400m redevelopment of White Hart Lane with a new 56,250 capacity stadium.
This was announced the High Court in London after that Archway Sheet Metal Works had asked a judge to quash the order in March 2012 on the grounds that it was unlawful and invalid.
The club can now re-develop existing stadium White Hart Lane with a new home for the north London club that could be completed in time for the 2018/19 season.
The project further aims to regenerate the Tottenham area with a central square, shops, housing and the refurbishment of existing buildings included in the club’s plans.
“Our 56,250 capacity stadium for Spurs forms the centrepiece of a wider Northumberland Development Project master plan for the regeneration of North Tottenham N17.
The design responds to the club’s brief for an iconic stadium incorporating modern state of the art facilities, and recreating the intense atmosphere of the current White Hart Lane stadium to provide the best possible spectator experience.
The concept expresses the idea of “flowing football, flowing lines”, and the curved cladding envelope and undulating roof together with a subtle use of club colours evokes the Spurs tradition of doing things with style and panache”. Source by KSS Design Group.
