Igloo given planning permission for north London office and home devel

A company which specialises in urban regeneration has been granted planning permission to begin work on a new a mixed-used development in north London.

Igloo’s 400 Caledonian Road development will place an emphasis on energy efficiency, and will feature 25 homes and 4,500 sq ft of London office and retail space. Design work on the £10 million project has been carried out by Brady Mallalieu Architects.

The site was purchased by Igloo in October last year (2012), having remained unoccupied after it was originally bought in the lead up to a Eurostar tunneling project.

Commenting on the project, John Long, development director at Igloo, stated: “400 Caledonian Road is a site of great architectural importance. We recognise the context of The Cally, the value of its restoration to local people, and the opportunity we have been given to breathe new life back into this stretch of historic and bustling London street.

“Our scheme will see a new community of people living and working here, and in turn playing their own role in the wider, existing community.”

Robin Mallalieu, co-founder of Brady Mallalieu Architects, said: “A combination of new, old and restored buildings will create unique courtyard space that will provide a setting for new homes and workspaces.”
