City Heights Islington

From no planning
to no problem


Bombed during the Second World War, the site was left derelict for half a century.  Due to an underlying rail tunnel, significant parts of the construction needed to be considered and worked around.


The site was acquired without planning in a part of London which was unpopular at the time.  The theme of the scheme needed to be a combination of convenience and style in order to appeal to City executives.  Once planning was successful acquired and construction had begun, the finished apartments were marketed both in the UK as well as Hong Kong.
