    That's a good point actually, in terms of FFP. Clubs aren't supposed to get dodgy sponsorship deals which are outside what could normally be expected... so I wonder if certain clubs will do crazy things like sell the naming rights to each seat, or the sausage train, or each block of seats, or the air near the seats...

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    Qatari telecom firm Ooredoo have been linked with a multi-million pound sponsorship deal with Liverpool, which could see the stadium renamed.

    Standard Chartered, Liverpool's current shirt sponsors, have 18 months remaining on the £20million per year deal they agreed in September 2009 and are currently in talks with the Anfield club about extending those terms.

    Liverpool had granted Standard Chartered a period of exclusivity to broker new improved terms.

    But Ooredoo, who recently appointed Lionel Messi to become an ambassador for their brand, have claimed they have received a tender from Liverpool and they are eager to become associated with the Barclays Premier League.

    A spokesman for Ooredoo said on Al Jeezera's website: 'The goal was to sponsor a big English club with a huge history. Our search included Arsenal & Manchester United but the former two have long sponsorship deals and the same applies to Emirates Marketing Project so Liverpool is the only club available right now.

    'We want to sponsor the club in full. We want to sponsor the stadium (possibly rename it) as well as the club's kits. Our goal is to reach the Asian markets where the Premier League has an enormous fan base.

    'We received the tender from the club a few days ago and we are currently in the process of due diligence and we are studying each aspect of the study. It is a dual interest, Liverpool needs the money to compete with the European heavyweights and we want to expand our brand to reach new markets via football.'

    Tbh, even though we have a very proud tradition of Muslim players (Nayim, Saib, Kanoute, Naybet, Mido, Ghaly, Taarabt, Kaboul and Dembele), I think the Jewish thing might always be an issue for Arab investors.

    Maybe I'm looking far too much into things but are we honestly
    Likely to get an Arab company to sponsor the stadium?

    I wouldn't worry about such things, there are many more non Arab gentlemen/companies in the World that are minted.

    I doubt that that's an issue. Not for any serious company anyway. As the the report says, it's the Asian market that these companies are really looking to crack - not the middle eastern market.

    And in that respect, Liverpool have a big advantage over us. Despite our current superiority, they are still a far bigger draw in Asia (and globally) than Spurs.

    What it does show is that there are companies out there that UK Tottenham fans have never heard of (probably) willing to spend millions on Premiership clubs

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    Quite ambitious. I'd expected several plans from minimal to ambitious but even the first of these is on the ambitious end. Ignoring how it affects our stadium plan it is quite an important project to revitalise the area. Expect a lot of opposition.

    I've clipped the schematic and description from the pdf file above and will summarise the three options in the next three posts

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    Option1

    [​IMG]

    Option 1. This would create the new public space and develop land north of White Hart Lane with some new housing and businesses, but doesn’t redevelop all of the Love Lane housing estate.

    This could provide the following benefits:

    • High-quality new homes including a mix of houses with gardens and flats with private shared courtyards
    • A new community centre
    • An improved White Hart Lane station
    • New shops, cafes and restaurants
    • A new area of open space linking the improved station to the new stadium
    • Improvements to the High Road to make it more attractive, such as better paving and planting
    • New, modern health services for the local community
    Key facts

    • 600-650 high-quality new homes, including a mix of houses with gardens and flats with private shared courtyards
    • 300-350 jobs
    • 7,450 sqm of new public open space (equivalent to approximately 28 tennis courts)
    • Phased redevelopment up to 10 years
    • ALL affected social rented housing will be replaced

    Which buildings would be redeveloped?
    • Ermine House
    • 2-32 Whitehall Street
    • 731-759 High Road
    • The area north of White Hart Lane (excluding the Sainsbury’s site and numbers 1-21c Pea**** Industrial Estate)

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    Option 2

    [​IMG]

    Option 2. This would create the new open space and includes redevelopment of most of the High Road West area, delivering more homes, community and leisure facilities and space for new businesses, but will take longer to deliver.

    This could provide the following benefits:

    • Enhanced learning, education and community hub on the High Road with Coombes Croft library moving into this larger space and having better facilities
    • New modern business space to provide opportunities for local people and start–up businesses through the relocation of Pea**** Industrial Estate
    • A new community park
    • New crèche and play facilities
    • A new gym
    • High-quality new homes including a mix of houses with gardens and flats with private shared courtyards
    • A new community centre
    • An improved White Hart Lane station
    • New shops, cafes and restaurants
    • A new area of open space linking the improved station to the new stadium
    • Improvements to the High Road to make it more attractive, such as better paving and planting
    • New, modern health services for the local community

    Key facts

    • 1400-1450 high-quality new homes, including a mix of houses with gardens and flats with private shared courtyards
    • 400-450 jobs
    • 8,900 sqm of new public open space (equivalent to approximately 34 tennis courts)
    • Phased redevelopment up to 15 years
    • ALL affected social rented housing will be replaced

    Which buildings would be redeveloped?
    • Ermine House
    • Charles House
    • Moselle House
    • 2-32 Whitehall Street
    • 9-39 White Hart Lane
    • Kathleen Ferrier Court
    • Pea**** Industrial Estate
    • 731-759 High Road
    • The area north of White Hart Lane

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    Option 3

    [​IMG]

    Option 3. This is the most ambitious option, creating more high-quality homes, leisure and community facilities and jobs than the other two options. Almost all of the High Road West area would be redeveloped and it will take the longest time to deliver.

    This could provide the following benefits:

    • New homes for all of the secure council tenants on the Love Lane Estate
    • New culture and leisure facilities such as a cinema and bowling alley, with space for cafes, bars and restaurants around the new public space
    • New sports and community centre providing a wide range of activities and events, with community space
    • Enhanced learning, education and community hub on the High Road with Coombes Croft library moving into this larger, space and having better facilities
    • New modern business space to provide opportunities for local people and start up businesses through the relocation of Pea**** Industrial Estate
    • A new community park
    • New crèche and play facilities
    • A new gym
    • High-quality new homes including a mix of houses with gardens and flats with private shared courtyards
    • A new community centre
    • An improved White Hart Lane station
    • New shops, cafes and restaurants
    • A new area of open space linking the improved station to the new stadium
    • Improvements to the High Road to make it more attractive, such as better paving and planting
    • New, modern health services for the local community
    • A new community park

    Key facts

    • 1600-1650 high-quality new homes, including a mix of houses with gardens and flats with private shared courtyards
    • 550-600 jobs
    • 8,900 sqm of new open space (equivalent to approximately 34 tennis courts)
    • Phased redevelopment over 15 years
    • ALL affected social rented housing will be replaced

    Which buildings would be redeveloped?

    • Ermine House
    • Charles House
    • Moselle House
    • 2-32 Whitehall Street
    • 3-89 Whitehall Street
    • 4-18 Brereton Road
    • 2-28 Orchard Place
    • 9-39 White Hart Lane
    • Kathleen Ferrier Court
    • Pea**** Industrial Estate
    • 731-759 High Road
    • The area north of White Hart Lane

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    I remember on the previous stadium thread putting this up and wandering about what they would do with that section of land.. I suggested putting in a new Super IMAX screen cinema. I took the one from Waterloo (same scale) and placed it ontop where the old Sainsburys is.. thought that they could put parking in that area so I superimposed a parking area from a shopping centre over the top, but I guess housing is better haha and that cinema complex looks cool.

    I think they would be nuts not to go for option 3.

    You just know all the NIMBYs are going to protest about the disruption though.

    An IMAX for Tottenham would be cool though, as trying to get decent tickets for Waterloo is nigh on impossible nowadays so it should be profitable. Plus a few of the youngsters going to the Tottenham IMAX might be inspired, when walking past our stunning new stadium, to become Spurs fans!

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    "A loooong time..." Well they are straightforward about saying it will take 10 to 15 years depending on which option is chosen. However, a process like this one, where the public believe they are participating, is made to be manipulated. The final selection is usually the one that best suits politicians and developers.

    It would be penny-wise, pound foolish to take anything but option 3. You don't put up state-of-the-art buildings and facilities and leave a few old dumps in their midst. They'll have to come down at some point, sooner rather than later. Economies of scale, etc. Do it now.

    Get 'em out by Friday.

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    I doubt that there'll be many. After all, there were very few objectors to the new stadium - and that was a far more likely target for NIMBY's.

    The opportunity to transform north Tottenham is too great. It cannot be spurned. People will recognise that, I think. They will get better homes; bigger homes; homes that are far more modern and cheaper to run. They will get get bigger and better community facilities. Or completely new ones. They will get a much improved station. They will get new public spaces; an improved High Road environment; cafes and restaurants. It's a no brainer.

    There will be NIMBY's, of course. There always are. But their shrill cries will be drowned out by the sensible majority.
