Tottenham Hotspur stadium project reaches new milestone Tottenham Hotspur stadium project reaches new milestone

The new Spurs stadium may be waiting on Eric Pickles for a decision but the Premier League club is continuing to support the wider regeneration of the Tottenham area.

Injury-blighted Spurs legend Ledley King was treated to stunning views of the London skyline - including the new stadium site - when he attended the ‘topping out’ ceremony of the Brook House development on Tottenham High Road this week.

The project, set for completion next year, is being developed by Newlon Housing Trust in partnership with the club, and represents another significant step in the sport-led regeneration of the Tottenham area.

In an event that marked a major landmark for the Tottenham stadium project, which includes 222 new homes and a new site for Hartsbrook School, Ledley joined representatives from Newlon Housing Trust, contractors Galliford Try and Haringey Council at the top of the 22-storey Brook House development.

Hartsbrook students were also present at the event, as they got a glimpse of the first-class educational facilities Brook House will provide once it opens in 2015.

Ledley King said: “This represents another important step in the regeneration of the area. You cannot help but be extremely impressed with the work taking place as you stand at the top of the Brook House development and look out upon the changing face of Tottenham.

“The new Sainsbury’s building and the University Technical College look fantastic as the stadium development continues to take shape, and it makes you realise that these are exciting times for the people of Tottenham.

“Plans for the homes that will exist at Brook House look incredible and the development of Hartsbrook School will provide a fantastic facility for young local people to further their education.”

Speaking on behalf of Newlon, Vice Chair Steve Hitchins said: “We are really excited to be helping deliver much needed new affordable homes and a new school for local people as part of the ongoing plans to regenerate Tottenham.”

Hoardings currently up around the Brook House development carry the artwork of Hartsbrook students who entered a competition to paint a picture of what they think their new school will look like.
