Bruce Grove Station
The transformation of the space in front of Bruce Grove Station, one of Tottenham’s oldest rail stations into a landmark spacious building with a striking copper-coloured steel facade were approved by Haringey Council’s Planning Committee on Monday 9 November 2015.
Residents who took part in the council’s five-month Tottenham’s Future consultation in 2014 said they would like to see new, high-quality places to eat and drink in Bruce Grove as part of regeneration work.
The new station has been designed by architects Landolt + Brown, in collaboration with artist Wendy Hardie. It will feature a glass structure clad with bespoke weathered steel that will change texture over time, and a raised roof that will connect the Victorian station, which first opened in 1872, to the high street – with the beautiful railway arches visible from inside and outside the building. There will also be space for a new café or restaurant. The narrow footpaths on the street that cause overcrowding near bus stops will be widened too.
Train services to central London, Cheshunt and Enfield Town from Bruce Grove were transferred to London Overground earlier this year, with Transport for London bringing more staff, new ticket machines and new trains due on the line by 2019.
Network Rail are currently progressing the technical designs for the scheme and we hope to be in a position to discuss the construction process in the summer.
However the site is also now for sale by Network Rail as part of a much larger sale of Network Rail’s commercial property sites. We are also discussing this with Network Rail in the event that the site is sold to another party in the near future. Further updates when we have them will be made available
