The site adjacent to St Ann’s Hospital in South Tottenham will also provide enhanced green spaces, shops, and other commercial uses, including affordable workspaces, while retaining and restoring several historic hospital buildings.
The location was originally purchased by the Mayor of London using some of his £250m Land Fund to acquire land to deliver more affordable homes for Londoners.
Catalyst was selected by the Mayor to develop the site in late 2020.
The hybrid application lodged with to Haringey Council contains detailed plans for 239 homes within the first phase and outline plans for an additional 756 homes over future phases.
The existing Peace Garden at the heart of the site will be trebled in size to include new public realm areas, play space, and further green space; and a network of new green spaces will be created around the existing trees.
There will be a mix of tenures on the site, including private sale, London Affordable Rent, London Living Rent, and Shared Ownership.
The new neighbourhood will be completely tenure-blind – meaning there will no discernible difference between the design of the private-sale and affordable homes from the outside.
When the plans are approved, Catalyst and Hill aim to start work on the first phase of the development in Spring 2023.
