  • Visitor Information

Home to the Former North London Mail Centre, Islington Square was built in the Edwardian Baroque style during the early 1900s. The development which fronts onto busy Upper Street, sits alongside Gibson Square and Milner Square that date back to 1832 and 1839 respectively. There are plans to breath new life into the building by CZWG Architects, with Piers Gough at the helm, creating luxury flats, mainsonettes and apartments with underfloor heating, central Wi-Fi and speed resistant swimming pools located in the rooftop gardens.
