Plans for purpose-built student accommodation in Tottenham have been submitted to Haringey Council with 35% designated as affordable housing.

The proposal for the four-storey building has been drawn up by High Road West Tottenham Ltd. 

The site is located at 807 High Road, between a Domino’s Pizza and The Bricklayers Arms, near Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The existing building – which has been disused for several years and was last open as The Alabar Lounge – will be demolished.

The plan is for a new building in two parts, with a front and back connected by a courtyard. On the ground floor facing Tottenham High Road will be 182 square metres of commercial space and, behind it, amenity space for the students, with the 25 studio flats situated above on the first, second and third floors.

Out of the 25 studios, eight of them will be ‘premium’ with a minimum of 24sqm of space, 15 will be ‘standard’ with 18sqm, and two will be en-suite bedrooms with 12.5sqm. 

The planning statement says 35% of the apartments will be affordable student accommodation and three of them will be accessible.

The proposal accommodates 20 cycle parking spaces for the students and two for the commercial area, with no car parking provision.

Feedback from a consultation found the replacement of the property at High Road was “supported” and the height of the building “acceptable in principle”. 

The frontage will remain in keeping with the design of adjacent buildings on the street. The impact on neighbouring properties was not listed as an issue.

Information on the scheme can be found via Haringey Council’s planning portal, using reference number HGY/2024/0692.
