An EIA scoping application has been submitted by Berkeley Square Developments for a 22 storey tower in Tottenham Hale. The scheme will contain 136 residential dwellings – likely all flats – and also consist of a six storey wing building along Hale Road.
A similar application with the same unit numbers but for a fatter 17 storey tower was submitted in early July however the design has since evolved to the new more slender development, in part due to discussions with the local authority, Haringey Council.
The site, known as Station Square West, is a relatively small 0.094 hectares and is located at the junction of Station Road and Hale Road. It sits next to a recently constructed Premier Inn hotel, and is immediately north over Station Road from the Pizza Hut and Maplin building. Currently, the site is being used for storage.
Given the town centre location, the ground floor will have 350sqm retail while the residential units above will mainly be one and two bedroom flats, with some three-bedroom apartments thrown into the mix. Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners is acting as agent at this stage, and the architect is listed as John McAslan & Partners on the developer’s website. The developer, Berkeley Square, should not be confused with London’s largest developer Berkeley.
The wider area is due to undergo a massive transformation, with many sites currently emerging at pre-application stage with scoping opinions and consultations. The only large recent development in the area has been Hale Village from Bellway, which may have recently completed apart from the long-planned tower element which will front Ferry Lane on the plot of land in front of the Tesco and Gym. Perhaps the drive behind the recent developments has been the Tottenham Hale’s location on the future Crossrail 2 line. Even without this new transport link, the area is already incredibly well connected with both frequent trains into Liverpool Street in the City and the Victoria line leading to the West End.
