The proposals look to revitalise the site which has been vacant for over a decade.
With restoration at the heart of the vision, the proposals will refurbish the key historic buildings and redevelop the remainder of the site to deliver:
230 new homes, 50% of which will be affordable in line with the identified need within the area.
New student accommodation as a new landmark building, providing 250 student rooms.
Element of flexible commercial space.
LANDSCAPING AND PUBLIC REALM
New and improved public realm and green space will be provided through extensive landscaping along with a new public square designed to be a focal point and key attraction for visitors to Archway.
Improved access through the new public realm will also allow for integration of the site into the nearby town centre.
• Preserving and restoring key historic buildings, delivering significant heritage benefits.
• 230 much needed new homes, of which 50% will be affordable – making a valuable contribution to Islington’s housing needs.
• New landmark building delivered at the apex of the site, to support 250 student accommodation rooms.
• A high quality and well-designed scheme which responds to the local area and integrates with the town centre.
On 6 June, we held a public exhibition for members of the local community to find out more about the proposals. You can view the materials displayed at the event by downloading an information pack below.
