Reviving Wood Green Town Centre
Wood Green Meanwhile Campus
We have been carrying out engagement events on Wood Green’s Future since early 2015. There has been broad support for developing small, meanwhile projects to improve Wood Green in the short-term by providing spaces for local people to make the place unique and support the local economy. The former Station Road Car Park and Tulip House are sites full of potential to achieve this aim.
As part of our commitment to bring new activities, cultural events and entertainment to Wood Green, we have launched a dedicated project to bring vacant land, a car park and buildings in Station Road back to life called Blue House Yard.
As it’s an important route that people use to travel between the High Road to Alexandra Palace, we have secured over £500,000 funding from the Greater London Authority to transform Station Road into a vibrant and lively experience for all. The space will be filled with:
- Creative workspaces
- Food and drink events, street food and markets
- Arts exhibition spaces
- Better evening activities
The revamp will bring more training and employment support for local people. The project will be a clear signal that regeneration in Wood Green is starting, and help provide more opportunities and activities for local people and businesses, while plans for long-term investment are drawn up. The first part of the project to be developed was the Green Rooms Art Hotel (external link) at 13-27 Station Road which opened in June 2016.
Blue House Yard
With the support of the Mayor of London and Haringey Council, and in partnership with Jan Kattein Architects, Meanwhile Space are unlocking potential and animating a former car park site and adjacent two storey office building near Wood Green station. Blue House Yard creates spaces for local people to harness their creativity and grow their business.
Blue House Yard comprises of:
- Timber “micro-shed” workspaces
- A new café housed in a double decker bus
- Shared green yard space
- Pitches for occasional markets
Tulip House (the blue house) is made up of:
- A metal workshop
- A timber workshop
- Studios for rent
Blue House Yard is now up and running. For all the latest news and updates visit the dedicated Blue House Yard website (external link).
