Argent Related has started construction on the fourth residential building at its development in the heart of Tottenham Hale and has appointed HG Construction as the main contractor for the new building.
The North Island building will deliver 136 new homes, including 80 shared ownership and 56 market sale. There is 3,000 square feet of planned commercial space on the ground floor with flexible use for a café, restaurants and shops facing onto Station Road and The Hale, which leads directly to Tottenham Hale station and will benefit from daily footfall.
The construction of the North Island building is part of Argent Related’s Tottenham Hale regeneration scheme which will create a fully-integrated new neighbourhood including over 1,000 new homes, 15 retail spaces, co-working and office space, a new health centre serving 30,000 local people and three new public squares, all minutes from Tottenham Hale station. The scheme is vital for the future vision of the area, delivering green spaces, improved road networks and bus station, retail and leisure hubs, as well as affordable housing.
The Tottenham Hale development has received strong sales demand for its first residential building, 1 Ashley Road, with over 50% of sales completed. 1 Ashley Road has been designed by Alison Brooks Architects with 183 studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, with interior design by Conran and Partners. The demand for homes at the development demonstrates it will be the place to live in London and provides the confidence to continue building through globally challenging times. North Island has been designed by internationally acclaimed architects Alford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM), whose wealth of experience in London reflects a continuing belief in the ability of outstanding architecture to last through time, creating buildings that aim to make a positive and lasting contribution to the city around them. Meanwhile, international landscape architects Grants Associates have been commissioned by Argent Related to conceive the design of new public and green spaces.
Through the construction of the new building, 27 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs will be created, with local apprenticeship opportunities. This will help upskill and develop local talent and provide hands-on experience. The overall Tottenham Hale development is estimated to generate a monthly average of 630 FTE construction jobs over the four-year programme.
Bringing further local benefits, 1,600 new residents will move into their new homes from 2022. The local household annual spend of these residents is estimated to be £14.5 million, which will support local businesses in the area.
Tom Goodall, partner and head of residential at Argent Related, commented: “We are proud to announce the start of construction on the next phase of the Tottenham Hale development and our partnership with HG Construction. This is a statement of confidence in the London housing market and Argent Related’s ability to deliver at pace the high-quality homes we need to help young people and families get on the housing ladder in this vibrant and growing part of North London.”
Christopher Benham, CEO of HG Construction, said: “We are delighted to be Argent Related's construction partner for this exciting and innovative scheme and look forward to working together. North Island is a key building block in the wider regeneration of Tottenham Hale, a project which will kickstart the local economy and transform the area into a thriving new destination for Londoners.”

About Tottenham Hale:
In March 2019 Argent Related received planning consent from the London Borough of Haringey for a visionary masterplan for the centre of Tottenham Hale, transforming this well-connected part of London into a place for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Next to the transport interchange (Victoria Line, Stansted Express, National Rail and earmarked for Crossrail 2), five plots of land are being brought together for development into 1,030 new homes – a mix of market sale, affordable and rental – across 7 buildings; 15 new retail spaces; co-working and office space and space for a new health centre serving 30,000 local people, all joined by three new squares providing two-football pitches worth of well-lit, elegantly-paved public space with seating and 75 new trees.
Argent Related is working with a world-class consultant team including Alison Brooks Architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Pollard Thomas Edwards and RUFFarchitects, with landscaping design by Adams & Sutherland and Grant Associates. The vision is expected to complete in 2024. For more information, visit: https://tottenhamhale.london/.
