Today marks the launch of Hornsey Park Place, the first phase of Clarendon, N8, a major new regeneration scheme by landscape-led developer St William. Once complete, Clarendon will deliver 1,714 studio, one, two and three-bedroom homes, alongside a new public park together with a series of landscaped spaces and courtyards. The scheme will also introduce over 100,000 sq ft of commercial space - creating a new London destination that is a social and sustainable place to both live and work.
Clarendon is a 12-acre brownfield site located within the Haringey Heartlands Opportunity Area, which is now being transformed into a vibrant and creative community for new residents and workers alike.
A new city village with a park at its heart
On every site, St William prioritises spaces and how people use them. Clarendon will provide 22 pockets of public space and private courtyards for both residents and the local community to enjoy. The centre piece Hornsey Park, which will include an orchard and striking water feature, will sit at the heart of the development and will be completed within the first phase. With an emphasis on natural light, the buildings have been designed at varying heights and angles in order to allow
natural light to shine through.
Outstanding amenities and meanwhile space
There will be a number of social spaces at Clarendon, including play areas and space for festivals and street events. Popular eatery Street Feast already hosts a pop-up food market within Clarendon Yards, where projekt is working in conjunction with St William to transform the disused space into a unique eating and drinking environment - creating a buzzing atmosphere in this brand-new London community. Further amenities within the Clarendon development will include a gym, swimming pool, concierge, creche and café.
