Caledonian Road Development
Planning Permission granted for a mixed-use development on Caledonian Road in London
Planning permission has just been granted by Islington Council for a new building adjacent to Caledonian Road Underground station, designed by Tim Foster Architects.
This mixed-use development replaces a single storey plumber’s merchant warehouse and includes two new restaurants at ground and basement floor level as well as eight flats and three floors of offices. The building has open terraces at high level on the street elevation and at floors two to five at the rear. The set-back to the fifth floor flats are clad in oxidised copper. A green roof is planned that will mimic the habitat of the adjacent nature conservation area.
The station next door is the last building of a long line fronting Caledonian Road and the end view of the new development will be visible above. The proposals include for an area of semi-opaque coloured glass on this wall, which will be back-lit to provide a beacon for the station.
