Tottenham have submitted a planning application with Haringey Council for their new 56,250-capacity stadium on land adjacent to White Hart Lane.
The Northumberland Development Project includes plans for a public square, hotel and supermarket, as well as a 63-row, single-tier stand in an attempt to maximise the atmosphere inside the ground.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: “The submission of the application is a hugely important step for the club.”
There are hopes that the stadium could be used for the 2018 World Cup.
Andy Anson, chief executive of England 2018 Ltd, said: “Tottenham's provisional designs for their new stadium are very impressive.
“We fully expect the stadium to be one of those included as a potential host venue for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bid.”
