Block Management Arsenal
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Arsenal .
History of Arsenal
Arsenal is situated to the north of London, in the borough of Islington. It is 4 miles from the centre of London. Until the 19th century, the area was largely rural. During the reign of Queen Victoria, (r. 1837-1901), there was concentrated building in the Arsenal area, especially in the 1870s. Originally, part of the course of Hackney Brook ran along Gillespie Road.
In 1906, Gillespie Road station was opened by the Great Northern, Piccadilly and Brompton Railway, (GNP&BR). At this time, rows of terraced houses were beginning to appear in this part of London. During the 1930s, many small works and businesses developed in Gillespie Road. The local Gillespie Road station was renamed to "Arsenal" in 1932, after pressure from the football club. The Gillespie Road name is still displayed on the original Edwardian platform tiling. The Arsenal Underground station we know today, is on the Piccadilly Line. The new stadium is now situated to the west of the street.
In 1913, St. John's Collect of Divinity leased its sports ground at Highbury to Woolwich Arsenal Football Club. This had been in 1886, as the works team of the Royal Arsenal at Woolwich. In 1925, Herbert Chapman, became manager of Arsenal Football Association. He was from Yorkshire, and was a strict disciplinarian and astute businessman. He led Arsenal to FA Cup victory, defeating Huddersfield Town 2-0, at Wembley Stadium, in 1930.
From 1913 to 2006, Arsenal's original stadium was named "Highbury." It was designed by Scottish architect, Archibald Leitch. He designed many of Britain's football stadiums. Highbury stadium was reconstructed in the 1930s, and subsequently rebuilt in the 1980s and 1990s. However, further attempts to expand the stadium were refused by the community. The resulting reduction in capacity and matchday revenue, led to Arsenal deciding to build a new stadium, which became known as the Emirates Stadium, in nearby Islington. In 2006, the entire stadium project was completed, at a cost of £390 million. The club's former stadium was redeveloped as Highbury Square, an apartment complex.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Arsenal
With my friend, I visited Arsenal Football Club, and enjoyed seeing a tour of the stadium. It was good to visit the Museum, where we learned a lot about the history of the stadium.
