History of Highbury and Islington
Highbury and Islington is an area located in the London Borough of Islington. It is situated 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Charing Cross and 5 miles (8 km) east of Camden Town. The name Highbury first appears in 1293, while the name Islington was first mentioned in a charter dated 1354.
The area has been settled since the Bronze Age, and there is evidence of Roman activity in the area. In the Middle Ages, Highbury and Islington was a rural hamlet, but it began to develop rapidly into a suburb of London in the Tudor period. It became a popular place for wealthy Londoners to build country homes, and many grand houses were built in the area.
Many of the magnificent residences were destroyed during the Second World War, when the region was heavily bombed. In the postwar period, the area was redeveloped and many new council estates were built.
New developments in Highbury and Islington
There are a number of new developments underway in Highbury and Islington. One of the most notable is the regeneration of the New River Estate, which is a council estate that was built in the 1950s. The regeneration project will see the construction of new homes, shops, and community facilities. Another major development is the Highbury Gardens scheme, which will create over 1,000 new homes, as well as a new primary school and community centre. The developments are part of a wider regeneration project that is taking place in the area. The regeneration is aimed at making Highbury and Islington a more attractive place to live, work, and visit.
This unique former office building has been converted into six modern new apartments within a private gated setting. Each apartment has been refurbished to the highest of standards with a sleek and timeless style, offering contemporary living at its finest with huge living spaces all with washed oak flooring, some with double-height vaulted ceilings, original windows, high-end kitchens, and bathrooms with underfloor heating beneath natural limestone flooring.
