Multi-million investment for Hornsey Town Hall

Over £36 million will be invested in the restoration and refurbishment of Hornsey Town Hall and Broadway Annex – including more than £20million in essential repair and heritage works to preserve the historic parts of the Grade II* listed building. 

Headline restoration and refurbishment figures we've released underline our commitment to secure the future of the Grade II* Listed Hornsey Town Hall and Grade II Listed Broadway Annex in the heart of Crouch End and deliver major restoration alongside an arts centre with flexible community space, a hotel, restaurants, cafes, homes and public realm improvements.

Total costs for the full restoration of the Town Hall and Broadway Annex, including fit out costs, come in at more than £36 million. For the Town Hall itself, £20million will be spent on essential basic remedial and heritage works, £5 million on ‘Fit for purpose’ works such as structural adaptations to create more usable spaces, and £6 million on ‘fit out’ costs for community spaces and the hotel. This takes investment in the Town Hall alone to more than £31 million. These works will see the Town Hall removed from Historic England’s ‘At Risk’ register and secure its long term future.

John Connolly, Head of UK Development at Far East Consortium, said: “We’re committed to restoring Hornsey Town Hall and to safeguarding it for future generations to enjoy. We’re happy to have published our cost breakdown for the restoration and refurbishment of this much loved local asset, which sets out the scale of thought and investment that is going into the refurbishment of the Town Hall and the Broadway Annex.”  

Details of a ‘meet the operator’ event to offer the community the opportunity to find out more about planned arts and community uses at Hornsey Town Hall and ask any questions they may have will be announced shortly.
