Peabody has chosen award-winning and Kentish Town-based architects Hawarth Tompkins to produce the development scheme for the old university campus, called the Holborn Union site. They are planning to redevelop as a residential-led mixed use development including social rent, shared ownership and outright sale.
Peabody is currently at an early stage of developing ideas and wants to hear what local people think about the site and how the development can contribute positively to the local area and is holding an introductory public consultation event for people to do that:
Friday 6th February 2015 - 3.30pm to 7.30pm
Saturday 7th February 2015 - 10am to 2pm
Education Centre, Whittington Hospital - at the north of the hospital site, on the right of the roadway which continues beyond the roundabout outside the A&E entrance.
Peabody has said it would be happy to consider incorporating a cinema to complement the Odeon on Holloway Road and the BFI (British Film Institute) is actively seeking a community to host a small cinema so this could be an option.
Suggestions concerning this can be made to Peabody, either at the event or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
