Hornsey Town Hall was designed by Reginald Uren and built in 1935. It is notable as one of the earliest modernist, continental-inspired Town Halls built in inter-war England. From 1965, following the abolition of Hornsey Borough Council, the Town Hall remained home to only a few of Haringey Council’s technical services, with the Assembly Hall closed in 1987. By 2004 the building as a whole was essentially redundant.
The building is currently on Historic England’s ‘Heritage at Risk’ register, with the condition of the building considered as 'poor'.
We are committed to investing around £29m directly into restoring, refurbishing and enhancing the Town Hall building, Broadway Annexe and the public realm. This will not only remove the Town Hall from the at risk register, it will allow it to be fully re-opened safely and securely, to create a focal point at the heart of Crouch End for the local community.
The proposals feature a new hotel, arts centre, café and flexible community and events spaces for all to enjoy with guaranteed community use.
