Final piece of jigsaw in Holloway Road gets approval
A new office development, described as “the final piece of the jigsaw” in one part of Holloway Road, has been granted planning permission.
Members of the Islington Council planning committee at a meeting last Thursday (May 12) approved plans for the property next to the School of Architecture and Interior Design in Holloway.
The developer Folgate Estates wants to create a six-storey building which will include a large retail unit on the ground floor and office space on the remaining five floors.
Council planning officer Paul Conboy, speaking at the meeting, said: “This is a modern area and the development fits in well in the road. We think it is a big improvement bringing a vacant site into productive use.”
Councillor Wally Burgess, a member of the Islington Council planning committee, said: “This is the final piece in the jigsaw for that part of Holloway Road and it should look good when built.”
