First Look: Benson & Forsyth has revealed its detailed proposals for a £80 million mixed-use scheme next to Finsbury Park station, north London
The practice landed the 46,000 sq m project in June last year (2008) after seeing off John McAslan & Partners, Panter Hudspith, FLACQ and Studio Egret West following a high-profile RIBA competition.
Backed by the Business Design Centre Group, the development features two 22-storey residential towers sat on a ’ podium building’ housing shops and offices.
A planning application is expected to be shortly – possibly September (2009) – following a recent public consultation exercise.
