Project summary

Once home to Saga Records and at the forefront of London’s reggae scene, the 20th century buildings are being developed by Resolution Property to make way for up to 85,000 sq ft of contemporary workspace by the Grand Union Canal. Phase one of the redevelopment, which has completed, features 20,000 sq ft of office space, communal terrace and four outside terraces. As part of the second phase, we will deliver an additional 65,000 sq ft of contemporary workspace across five floors, with some of the upper offices benefitting from 6,500 sq ft of rooftop access space. There will also be a new shared reception/event space and canal side café, as well as a cycle hub with 130 spaces.

The detail

The scheme will be constructed using the latest in timber technology to create a sustainable and healthy phased development. A four-storey timber extension above the building will be installed with new brick and glazed façades added to all elevations, while other improvements will include a louvred rooftop plan enclosure, green roof and photovoltaic solar panel installation. Mechanical and engineering works include the installation of a new plant including a generator room and sub-station. Internally, new suspended ceiling lights and heating and cooling systems will be fitted throughout.
