A chair has been appointed for the delivery of homes, jobs, and transport hubs surrounding the new stadium that is being built for Tottenham. Major Businesses Group and Tottenham Landowners took the decision of appointing Robert Evans as the new chair.
Evans comes into the role with incredible experience of having dealt with a similar development and relocation work near King’s Cross. He has been in charge of the team, which has been handling any area of just under 70 acres, for the last 12 years. Evans has been responsible for creating more than 8 million sq ft of homes, offices, and mixed development.
He has also been involved in other landmark areas like Piccadilly gardens, Piccadilly Place, and One St Peter’s Square. He expressed his delight at being able to lead a project of this magnitude. It is expected that the costs will cross the £ 500 million mark, as Spurs attempt to build a stadium that will seat close to 60,000. After managing to stage an uprising in the league over the last few years, it is believed that the development of this new stadium will take Spurs to the next level.
The total investment in the project is expected to be around the £ 1 billion mark, which makes it one of the key projects in London right now.
“I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as Chair of the group and I’m excited to be working with some of the leading organisations involved in Tottenham’s regeneration. Tottenham has amazing potential, and with nearly £1 billion of investment already agreed, I look forward to working with the group to help transform the area,” said Evans.
Councillor Alan Strickland also welcomed the appointment by saying that it is great to have a person of Evans stature leading the project.
