Plans have been approved for the tallest tower of a regeneration project - and even more homes.

The fourth phase of the Clarendon Gasworks regeneration scheme in Wood Green, a short walk from Alexandra Palace, includes 377 new homes in a 27-storey tower.

This will be the tallest point of the new neighbourhood, and the phase will also introduce a range of flexible office and commercial spaces, a new public square and landscaped rooftop terraces.

Its approval is part of a wider development project to transform the site into a mixed-use neighbourhood of more than 1,700 homes.

Two further blocks are adjacent to the tower, framing the civic square and creating a pedestrian arcade between the two buildings.

Developer St William Homes, part of the Berkeley Group, is also continuing with its development of phase 3b, which includes 281 new homes.

Alongside this, it will feature office space, a food store, a café, a community centre and facilities for a lounge, gym, spa and pool.

Architecture firm Sheppard Robson said: “Located in the ‘urban quarter’ of the masterplan, Phase 4 is intended to be the most dense and commercially vibrant of all the masterplan phases.

“The new public square, designed by MRG Studio, will provide a gathering space for residents of the whole neighbourhood, supporting local businesses and facilities for residents.

“Covered by an illuminated canopy to form part of a future artist commission, the arcade running between the blocks connects the square to the surrounding neighbourhood and will help stitch the development into its wider context.”
