Telford Homes’ City North development is the most significant mixed-use development in Finsbury Park for a generation. Not only does the scheme deliver much needed new mixed-tenure homes to the area, but it also directly contributes to the town centre’s vitality by providing significant additional retail and leisure amenities to draw in visitors and new residents.
A commitment to high-quality placemaking will enhance accessibility, not least through providing a new entrance to Finsbury Park tube station. Telford Homes is also making significant investments in improvements to the local area – including cleanliness, new signposting and public art installations.
The development’s 11,781 sq.m of commercial space will not only provide an opportunity for increased local spending, but also create over 400 new jobs, which will help tackle longstanding
issues of inequality within the community. Telford Homes has made efforts to engage with the local community in Finsbury Park, to maximise the socio-economic benefits of City North and ensure the development is an important, integrated part of the community. This includes regular engagement with local traders, and support for community initiatives, such as sponsorship of the local Park Theatre.
