Pre-planning meeting next Tuesday 10th March at the Civic Centre
Apex House, the unlovely redbrick Customer Services building at the junction of Seven Sisters Road and Tottenham High Road, is due to be demolished and replaced by a 22 storey tower block of mostly private-sale flats. Not surprisingly, the developer is Grainger, as in slash-and-burn plans for Wards Corner, the adjacent building. They have been gifted the site by the Council for £3.4 million, ie about the price of three houses in Muswell Hill.
This is, as far as I know, the first proposed building of this height in Haringey. The Tottnm Hale towers are about 15 storeys. Precedent?
I’ve blogged some stuff on the SoTo site:
Note in particular that last note, a pre-planning ‘advisory’ meeting with the Planning Committee, next Tuesday 10th March, at the Civic Centre. The Agenda and reports pack for this meeting can be viewed on the Council’s website here:
Those of us who live literally in the possible shadow, will be there to offer some advice.
