First residents at Islington Square have now moved into their apartments. The development by Cain International in association with Galliard Homes has also reached a construction milestone with Block A now complete.
The 4.5 acre mixed-use development is now 75% built and is set for completion in Quarter Four 2019. The apartments at Islington Square have proven popular with almost 70% now sold.
In Block A, 57 out of the 106 apartments were sold ahead of the building’s completion. Block B of the development has 16 apartments, in which 14 are sold. In Block C, out of the 38 apartments, 36 are successfully forward sold. Throughout all sales, there is a broad range of buyer demographic, inclusive of investors and owner-occupiers including families, single men and women, and young married couples.
Comprising three residential buildings designed by award winning architect Piers Gough of CZWG Architects, Islington Square is located in the heart of Islington behind Upper Street. There will be 170,000 sqft of retail and leisure facilities including shops, cafes, restaurants and lifestyle brands such as a luxury cinema and a Third Space health club, creating a new Covent Garden style destination.
Following the first set of residents moving in by the end of June, Islington Square’s Maisonettes and Penthouses will be completed and ready for handover to residents in the summer.
David Galman, Sales Director at Galliard Homes said, “With first residents set to move into Islington Square, Galliard Homes are incredibly excited by this latest completion milestone. As we start to see the development take shape in its final construction phases, we look forward to seeing the positive impact this new destination will have on Islington.”
Islington Square is located just a short walk away from both Angel station (Northern Line) and Highbury and Islington Station (London overground and Victoria Line), and has access to an extensive network of buses from Upper Street, with excellent transport links enabling residents to be in the City in approximately ten minutes and the West End in twenty minutes.
For those wanting to travel further afield, Islington Square is not far from Kings Cross International Station providing easy access to continental European destinations, and London’s airports.
