Councillors square up to changes on Triangle estate

21 April, 2017

A PROPOSAL for a huge redesign of Clerkenwell’s Triangle estate will go before councillors next week.

Islington Council has submitted plans which would see the demolition of six homes, the central podium in the middle of the estate, garages and one shop in order to create 54 new homes – 27 of which would be council homes. The rest would be private flats.

The plan for the 1970s estate also features bicycle storage, a new landscaped courtyard garden, “improvements to the public realm”, and space for a new shop will be created.

The new homes will be put where the garages currently are; a new six-storey addition on the ends of the three existing blocks; a single-storey roof extension across all three blocks and a new part seven, part eight-storey building on the junction of Goswell Road and Percival Street.

The Town Hall’s planning committee will consider the plans on Thursday.
