* mandatory field

Introducing a sustainable mixed-use development of 25 low-energy, eco-focused homes and 3 commercial studio spaces. Sustainable developer, Igloo, has committed to the delivery of Four Hundred Caledonian Road as a high quality, environmentally responsible development. Including, in addition to new-build spaces, the refurbishment of an historic stable block and Victorian town house. So that it can once again play an active and important role in this historic stretch of 'The Cally'. Igloo acquired this urban infill site to bring a derelict and decaying site back to life on an historic stretch of the Cally. It had lain sorry and unused for a decade since its compulsory purchase for the Eurostar project. The tunnel passes just three meters below foundation level, so the site is not without its challenges. 400 Caledonian Road, scheduled for completion in Spring 2015, will see the development of sensitively designed new-build homes, the retention and restoration of an historic stable block, the creation of two intimate courtyard spaces, and the refurbishment of a derelict Victorian town-house fronting Cally Road.

Site description indicating blocks and access

Site entry is through an archway under the townhouse on Caledonian Road, and then via a sequence of reclaimed buildings and spaces. The layout and courtyards reflect this sequential user experience, continuing past the tall stable block to newbuild 2 mews houses positioned where the site widens by 7.5m. A south-facing communal courtyard leads on to the 4 storey principal residential block with single storey commercial return at the northern edge.
