Foster & Partners design City Forum..
Berkeley Group’s plan to build almost 1,000 homes in Islington have been approved by London’s mayor. Boris Johnson ‘called-in’ the City Forum development on City Road in December 2013 after officers from Islington Council refused the application. Since then, City Hall planners have been working closely with developer Berkeley Homes and the council to bring forward a scheme that can alleviate some of London’s pressing housing needs. The Foster & Partners designed scheme comprises a 42-storey tower block and a 36-storey tower block in an area already designated by Islington Council as suitable for locating a cluster of tall buildings.
