Developed by Sager Group in association with Cain Hoy, Islington Square is designed by award winning architect Piers Gough of CZWG Architects and combines restored Edwardian buildings and new build elements designed around a central pedestrianised boulevard, nestling behind the facades of Islington's Upper Street.
The grand Edwardian sorting office and related buildings that form the former North London Mail Centre, were originally built in 1904-1906 and designed by architect Jasper Wager. The complex was responsible for sorting and delivering hundreds of thousands of letters and parcels across Inner London.
Islington Square will provide residents with outstanding lifestyle facilities. There will be 175,852 square feet of retail/commercial facilities including shops, cafes, restaurants, The Lounge Odeon cinema and a Third Space health club. In addition, Islington Square fronts onto Upper Street which has restaurants, bars and cafes offering diverse cuisine from around the world including Italian, French, Turkish, African and Asian.
The new 46,922 square feet (4,359 sqm) Third Space health club will include a gymnasium, training space, two swimming pools and fitness studios. The club will have a medical and nutritional suite and a spa with steam room and sauna facilities. The state of the art The Lounge Odeon cinema will be the brand's flagship The Lounge' concept providing six boutique screening rooms each with no more than 40 reclining leather seas, with fine food and drinks brought to guests in their seats during screenings at a touch of a button.
