After being vacant for a number of years, the building has been renovated by Haringey Council. The project has been part funded by the Mayor of London’s Growth on the High Road project, which aims to improve Tottenham High Road and make it a more attractive place to shop, meet and socialise.
Following consultation with the local community and an architectural study of the building, Haringey Council invited Expressions of Interest from prospective tenants to lease the building as a bar/café, bringing new life to this historic structure and enlivening this part of Tottenham High Road.
Returning this building to use for the Tottenham community is part of an ongoing series of investments through the Tottenham Regeneration Programme.
The new bar/cafe is called The High Cross run by Chris Johnson and Alex Beeston. They were suported by Haringey Council's Opportunity Investment Fund - a loan fund for businesses. Find out more about how the Fund supported them here.
