Woodside Square is a complex and sensitive site, set within one of the most attractive areas of North London – its northern boundary consists of fine Edwardian terraced houses and to the south lies Highgate Woods. It housed an inpatient hospital for mental health patients from the mid-1920s, but has been largely unused since 2009.

The site currently contains a nationally listed Grade 2 neo-Georgian administration building dating from the 1920s and two locally listed and now converted Victorian houses, as well as associated ancillary buildings and extensive gardens with mature trees.

On this site we propose to create an exemplary housing scheme of around 160 new mixed tenure homes within a carefully preserved and enhanced green setting.

Our proposals include substantial houses as well as apartments, with an emphasis on accommodation for the over-55s.

Hanover and PTE are also working closely with the Cohousing Woodside, a group of local residents who wish to develop a cohousing scheme, and part of the site will be used to create around 35 mixed tenure houses and flats which will share a garden and a community house.
