Islington triangle – proposals for buildings published for consultation until 14 April

Developers propose some large buildings on the land behind the concrete works and construction training centre by Randell’s Road and York Way according to plans published on the Council website yesterday.  This is the ‘Islington Triangle’ site that was the subject of hard fought battles many years ago – it’s the only bit of the KX development that is in Islington.  In application number P2016/1030/RMS Argent the agent say:

‘…comprising 12 to 17 storeys of mixed use accommodation for 140 Open Market residential units on the upper floors of Building W1 and 8 storeys of residential accommodation for 36 General Needs Social Rented, 23 Intermediate and 19 Open Market units at the upper levels of Building W2; four retail units at lower ground floor and podium levels (flexible class A1-A4); and associated cycle and disabled car parking, loading bay, refuse stores, storage, plant areas provided within the shared lower ground floor/basement area, as required by conditions 2, 4, 6, 9-20 and 22-30 of outline planning permission reference P041261 granted 22 July 2008 (subject to a S106 agreement) for a comprehensive, phased, mixed-use development of part of the former railway lands within the Camden King’s Cross Opportunity Area and an Islington Area of Opportunity.’

You’ll get the best flavour from this easy to read Urban Design Report from where I have extracted the proposed view from Bingfield Park above.  We shall no doubt write more on this here when we have had a chance to digest it, the plans are open for comment until 14 April.
