McLaren Construction has been appointed as the main contractor to deliver the first phase of Waterside Places’ Hale Wharf development at Tottenham Hale, as part of a wider regeneration programme.

The first phase of the development consists of 249 new homes, a new pedestrian bridge over the River Lee Navigation providing convenient access to Tottenham Hale Underground station and canal-side public realm for the residents and wider community.

The Hale Wharf scheme is being delivered by Waterside Places – a strategic joint venture between Canal & River Trust and Muse Developments, in partnership with the Mayor of London and London Borough of Haringey.

John Butten, Regional Managing Director – Major Projects at McLaren Construction, said:
“It is a pleasure to be working with Waterside Places to deliver the first phase of this development. We bring our broad experience in the residential sector to this scheme, as well as the highest-quality finishes. We are glad to be a part of this regeneration around Tottenham Hale.”

Nigel Franklin, chairman at Waterside Places, said:
“We are delighted to have appointed McLaren Construction for the first phase at Hale Wharf and look forward to working closely with them. Our focus is to deliver high-quality urban waterfront schemes that deliver diverse and sustainable places and McLaren has a wealth of experience in this field.”

Work on the first phase of the scheme is now underway and will be completed in the first quarter of 2021.

On completion of Phase 2 in 2023, residents will also benefit from access to the Paddock Community Nature Park that will play a key role in the council’s new ‘Green Grid Strategy’, which seeks to improve the space for the local community.
