Regeneration of the former Clarendon gasworks in Hornsey approved

9th December 2020

The next stage of development at Clarendon, St William’s major regeneration of the former Clarendon gasworks in Hornsey, has been approved.

This latest phase of the masterplan comprises 281 homes, residents’ facilities, a new community centre, a food store, cafe and 25,000 of sq ft of commercial space.

Designed by Sheppard Robson, Phase 3B of the project sits at the heart of the masterplan and includes proposals for three buildings that will house 281 new homes, office space, a food store, café and community centre. The project will also include resident amenities, which will feature a lounge, gym, spa and pool.

Proposals include an extensive and varied range of landscaped areas by LDA Design for the public and residents, including a new pocket square, a soft landscaped public garden, a wild planted podium space, and residents’ roof terraces for each building, all responding to the needs of the local community.

The major regeneration project forms an important part of the Haringey Heartlands Opportunity Area. Both the layout of the scheme and the architecture have been shaped and inspired by the site's historic use, the Moselle River and the characterful detailing of the brickwork in the nearby conservation area Noel Park.

Nick Hacking, Associate Partner at Sheppard Robson, said: We are delighted to have helped in the evolution of what will be a fantastic and vibrant neighbourhood. The mix of homes, spaces and facilities address the rapidly changing demands of our local communities, with the recent approval marking a significant milestone for the masterplan.’
