Hale Wharf blog series part III: Supporting community spaces

26.06.24 2 min read by Ellen Bryan

Beyond the green space that is being enhanced at the Paddock in Tottenham, we have engaged with other key community locations in Tottenham Hale including The Engine Room.

Opened in 2017, The Engine Room serves an ever-expanding multi-cultural community with a church, community centre, cafe and nursery. At the time of construction, St Francis was the first purpose-built church in London in 40 years and it has gone on to develop an active schedule of worship and community activity that sees over 500 people use the space each week.

At Christmas, we donated three bags of Christmas presents to The Engine Room which were gifted to local children in Tottenham Hale Village and supported their annual Christmas Party. Our project team has remained active within the local community throughout construction, with them sponsoring and taking part in the Tottenham 10km run in June 2024.

To encourage art and active living in the area, we’re supporting the North London Hospice and Wild in Art’s ‘Big Fun Art Adventure’, which will bring an exciting and free art sculpture trail to North London for families to enjoy.

More than 30 giant owl sculptures, alongside a parliament of 30 smaller owlets designed by local schools and community groups, will hide in plain sight on the streets and in the parks this summer. Set to arrive in August for eight weeks, we’re sponsoring our own owl, which will be homed adjacent to The Paddock Bridge. The project team hopes it will encourage footfall from Tottenham Hale and beyond to The Paddock and across the Hale Wharf Bridge, showcasing the improvements of the area and its biodiversity. The owl will be later auctioned off to raise money for North London Hospice.

Hale Wharf is being delivered by Waterside Places, our strategic joint venture with Canal & River Trust, in partnership with the Mayor of London and London Borough of Haringey. It sits within one of the Mayor of London’s Housing Zones, with 505 homes being delivered, of which 191 are classified as Affordable Rent. Hale Wharf is making an important contribution to the Mayor’s and the Greater London Authority’s aspiration for 2,000 new homes in the borough.
