The historic site will become open to the public for the first time and deliver 985 new homes, including 415 at social rent, together with new commercial spaces and a multi-functional Women’s Building set within a new 1.4 acre public park.
To meet local housing needs most of the social homes will be two and three-bedroom homes for families and there will also be 60 Extra Care one-bedroom homes and a sensory garden.
The development will provide over 2,000 cycle spaces and create new connections throughout the site with parks, private gardens and green roofs interlinking each building.
“Not only a great place to live but an exceptional place to be”
The Women’s Building will provide a large multi-purpose hall suitable for functions with a range of multi-purpose smaller rooms including a café, changing rooms, laundry and a creche which allow for long term flexibility and adaptability to serve multiple and different user groups.
“We are extremely proud to be acting as Lead Consultant to deliver this exceptional new neighbourhood in Holloway providing high quality homes around quality public spaces to connect the community. ”
Overall the site is divided into five different plots creating 15 buildings with distinct characters and will be constructed over three phases.
Work is expected to start on site this year.
