  • Scheme Details


    The new Stadium scheme also brings together a wide range of uses to create new homes and jobs alongside major new visitor attractions to create a thriving destination every day of the year.

    The Tottenham Experience

    The Tottenham Experience will be a housed in an architecturally stunning new visitors' centre, designed as a three storey terrace along the High Road to act as a gateway to the new Stadium, providing a permanent use for the listed Warmington House.

    The building creates a new entrance plaza from the South and will host:

    • A Museum of Tottenham Heritage – allowing people to access historic archives, collections and stories about the local area and the Club’s role in the history of Tottenham in a relaxing and welcoming environment, with views onto the High Road and onto the podium level next to the Stadium.

    • An interactive Club Museum – utilising interpretive media designed to tell the Club’s history, display Club artefacts, host the Hall of Fame and encourage the visitor to explore all aspects of the Club and its home in Tottenham.

    • Kinetic motion-sensor Skills Booths – allowing visitors to test their skills against key players past and present and to re-create memorable moments from the historic archives.

    • An immersive Cinema – as part of the Club Museum and stadium tour experience and a venue for private screenings and local community events.

    • A new Club shopping experience – will be the largest store area of any football Club in Europe, utilising the latest retail concepts including touch display walls and the ability to see an image of yourself wearing different merchandise.

    • An Arrivals Hub – connecting the whole Tottenham Experience, from which visitors can collect tickets, access the stadium tour and ‘suit-up’ for the Sky-Walk.

    Not only does the creation of the Tottenham Experience deliver a fantastic new venue and outlet for the locality and its visitors, it also secures a long-term viable use for Warmington House.

    The design sensitively blends old architecture with new, incorporating the Grade II listed Warmington House as an integral part of The Tottenham Experience. It will be a perfect and appropriate setting for many historical Club features such as the famous, iconic Bill Nicholson Gates and key elements of the Red House and the Dispensary. 

    The Tottenham Experience:

    • Secures the retention of Warmington House – with a complete refurbishment inside and out, retaining the original plan form and historic interiors of the building.

    • Places Warmington House at the centre of the Tottenham Hotspur Experience – with an open atrium to the East allowing the listed building to link to the podium level and retain its frontage on the High Road.

    • Provides a long-term viable use for the building – integrated as part of the Tottenham Experience and hosting sections of the interactive museum on the lower floors with the more compromised spaces at the second floor level used for offices and ancillary space.

    • Creates a new terrace along the High Road – reflecting the scale and massing of Warmington House to hold the line of the High Road at the same time as creating a far safer environment for crowds by allowing a much wider pavement alongside the bus lane.

    Sky Walk

    A spectacular visitor attraction for fans and the public alike.

    The design of the new stadium includes the ‘Sky Walk’ - allowing visitors to climb the exterior of the building up to 40 metres high, creating a unique experiential visitor attraction.

    • The first ever for a football stadium – adapted from the concept first used at Sydney Harbour Bridge and now operating successfully at the O2.

    • A major attraction for North London – providing adrenaline-filled activities for all ages and spectacular views across the capital.

    Extreme Sports

    A fantastic new building to host Extreme Sports and leisure activities for all ages and a brilliant addition to the leisure offer in Tottenham.

    The Extreme Sports Building sits on the eastern side of the Hotel and acts in partnership with the Tottenham Experience to form a new entrance plaza to the Stadium at the junction of the High Road and Park Lane. It will help attract visitors to Tottenham every day of the year and provide a thrilling day out for young and old alike.

    Current proposals include:

    • The tallest indoor climbing wall in the world – making Tottenham a destination for climbing enthusiasts and those with an adventurous spirit.

    • A second major leisure attraction – we are currently considering the inclusion of a scuba-diving tank.

    • High performance activities – for example speed, agility and reaction tests for all ages and abilities including strong links to the national curriculum.

    • An “Altitude Café” – set 38m above the public square and offering panoramic views.

    Hotel

    A major new addition to the plans, this new high quality Hotel and Rooftop Bar, operating at a four-star level, will meet a key need in Tottenham and provide the cornerstone for a dedicated new training programme for the hospitality sector.

    The hospitality industry is already the UK’s 4th largest employer, with 2.7 million people employed across 180,000 businesses. However there are real skills shortages, especially in the hotel trade, which makes recruitment difficult. Our new hotel in Tottenham will facilitate training programmes, opening up new career opportunities for local people.

    The design of the hotel allows for views of the Stadium as people approach from the High Road and includes a rooftop bar and amazing views across London. It also directly supports the conference and banqueting facilities at the Stadium by providing high quality hotel accommodation for people attending events.

    • 180 bedrooms – arranged over 12 floors, with 49 serviced apartments above.

    • A foyer restaurant and bar – plus a roof-top bar offering stunning views back to the City of London.

    • Gym facilities for guests and members – including a Swimming Pool.

    • Dedicated training programme – opening up new career opportunities into the hospitality sector.

    New Homes and Employment Space

    585 new homes providing high quality living with every apartment enjoying access to a private balcony in addition to communal gardens and child play areas. New employment space is also included in the podium level below the residential buildings.

    Designed by world-renowned architects Allies & Morrison, these plans will be submitted to Haringey Council in outline, recognising that this will be the final phases to be delivered once the stadium itself is complete.

    • 585 new homes – offering a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, including affordable housing.

    • Arranged across four new residential buildings – varying in height from 16 to 32 storeys above a three storey podium in the southeast corner of the site, with a minimum of 18 metres between facing habitable rooms.

    • Views through to the stadium – compared with the current situation on Park Lane where the stadium currently over-hangs the street.

    • Balconies for every apartment – with a courtyard garden on the podium level which will incorporate child play space and landscaped outdoor garden spaces in addition to the Multi-Use Games Area provided within the public square.

    • High quality design – based on an elegant four storey grid with an angled base and upper floors which together create visual interest and a variety of internal layouts.

    • Parking at basement level – with 275 spaces provided, accessed from Worcester Avenue, alongside space for nearly 900 bicycles and dedicated spaces for shared car-club use.

    • 25,000 square feet of employment space – for offices or other uses, helping creating more jobs.

    Medical Centre

    This new community health facility would be sited on the north-east corner along Worcester Avenue to host an NHS health centre.

    This new building will:

    • Host a GPs surgery – providing more options for local people.

    • Include facilities for other health specialists – as part of the Government’s drive to continue to deliver more health services in the community.

    • Increase access to NHS health facilities – for both new and existing residents alike.

    Public Square

    Public Space

    We have always placed a new public square at the heart of our plans as part of the public realm around the stadium. The revised designs ensure that this is better integrated with the stadium design, to provide something truly special for local people with 24/7 open public access. The public square runs from the High Road right through to Worcester Avenue – on a raised podium accessed by stairs from four different locations, with external lift access. 

    The square connects directly to the general concourse level of the new stadium – ensuring this acts as a home fans zone on match days as well as adding to the appeal and wider use on non-match days. 

    A new Multi-Use Games Area – set within high-quality landscaping around the public square which will provide informal seating areas, an outdoor café, outdoor gym and a protected Multi-Use Games Area that can host a range of sporting and other community events running through the week. 

    Events and community programmes - managed by the award-winning Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, enabling it to extend its reach and impact with programmes designed to raise educational attainment, healthy living standards, social cohesion and inclusion and equality for all.
