Lilywhite House includes, amongst other things, the club administration offices and the Stadium Project Office on the top floor, representing a step forward in development plans for the new ground.
Spurs have also announced that restoration works on the historic Tottenham Hotspur clock and cockerel, which have been symbols of the club for over 70 years, have been completed and they will be housed in the building.
Plans for Tottenham’s new stadium have been less than smooth since the club made it clear they were wanting to eventually move away from White Hart Lane…
The club originally wanted to become the new tenants for the Olympic Stadium, meaning a relocation from north to east London, though this move was unpopular among fans and the owners of the stadium. West Ham were given the tenancy of the stadium in Stratford as they were deemed the most viable and also agreed to keep the running track.
The new stadium will now sit adjacent to White Hart Lane’s current location and will be a bowl shape, similar to Arsenal’s Emirate Stadium, although it is unlikely the club will be able to move in for the start of the 2017-18 season as had originally been hoped.
