Sainsbury’s has boosted Tottenham’s regeneration project with the announcement of plans for a 72,000 sq ft supermarket within Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium development project.

The deal with Sainsbury’s will enable the Northumberland Development Project to move into building works and comes days after the club secured unanimous planning consent from Haringey Council. Work will start in the coming months, with the opening planned for late 2013.


The new supermarket will provide 250 new jobs and is seen as a welcome vote of confidence for the local community, unlocking a range of social and economic benefits, revitalising the area, and attracting new trade and shoppers. The store will have a “great offer” for customers, including British fruit and vegetables, fresh meat and fish counters, an in-store bakery and a wide range of general merchandise and TU clothing.
The new High Road convenience store is due to reopen in April 2012 on a site destroyed during the riots, creating around 25 new jobs.


Justin King, Sainsbury’s chief executive, said: “Our investment represents a real boost for Tottenham, bringing both new jobs and an exciting place to shop. The opening of our local store on Tottenham High Road also reinforces our commitment to a vibrant future for Tottenham’s high street.



Sainsbury’s has been trading in Tottenham for over a quarter of a century and we’re proud to invest in the area at this important time.”

If this is completed for late 2013, will we be able to get our new stadium up and open for the start of the 2014/15 season I wonder? Or will it be 2015/16?

Are you assuming that the supermarket will open 18 months before the stadium? I don't think the two are connected, the time the supermarket opens doesn't effect the time the stadium will open. I assume work will start on both projects at the same time though. I can't remember the predicted build time but if it takes two years for phase one it'd be ready for the start of 2014/15 and finished for 2015/16

I'm sure I read (this was some time ago mind you) that the supermarket would open about 12 months prior to the stadium being completed. This might just be a figment of my imagination though!

Even if that was true it may no longer be true. Also, remember that we will be playing in the stadium a season before it's completed, the final 1/4 of the stadium will be built while we're playing. Lets hope they remember to paint some black fans in

I believe that it was mentioned in the meeting with Harringay last month that the build will still be in 4 phases.

Phase 1 Supermarket begins summer 2012
Phase 2 Stadium build begins summer 2013
Phase 3 Spurs move into new stadium (2/3 built) and begin demolishing old stadium). Summer 2015
Phase 4 completion of stadium begin building housing etc...Summer 2016

2 years to build isn't bad but makes me wonder why they'd wait a year to start

We still need to submit another Planning Application to revise the currently approved scheme.

We then have to finalise the financing including the naming rights and put the tender out and award to a contractor.

The logistics of the site could possibly also prevent the Supermarket and Stadium being constructed at the same time.

We just got a revised planning application accepted in January didn't we?

Mentioned at the end of the last meeting that we are going for another one in March. Rumoured to be about an increase in capacity and removal of the 4 buildings.

Alright fair enough, I don't keep as much of an eye on developments as much as I used to.

The reason the stadium isn't starting yet is primarily because THFC haven't secured the funding arrangements for the main stadium development. The Northern development, which mainly comprises the supermarket, can start right away because Sainsbury's can fund their own supermarket.

The recently approved revised planning consent was related to extensive amendments to the Southern development - the housing, etc. - and to some additonal facilities added to the Northern development. There will be another planning application that will deal with alterations to the stadium itself. That hasn't even been submitted yet, as far as I know.

This isn't exactly new news.

The existing Sainsbury's site will be used for housing, and Spurs will have some kind of share of the profit from this. Even more interestingly, the Cannon factory next door appears to have shut down and demolition work is taking place. I'm not sure whether this is a rebuild/modernisation, with the factory due to re-open, or if it's gone, in which case a very large area is going to be available for development. It's hard to believe Levy won't have at least one finger in the pie.

The fate of the Cannon factory will be something available at the town hall, wouldn't it? I'm not clued up on all that, but if it's recently been earmarked for redevelopment rather than rebuilding, someone somewhere will have a letter about it in a drawer.

It should be, and a quick Google revealed nothing. I've been away from Tottenham (and London, and SC) for a good month, so only became aware that something was going on when I got back a couple of days ago and popped into Sainsbury's for some groceries.
